Therapy is a form of specialized conversations.  The methods we use most often are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution Focused Behavioral Therapy (SFBT).

In CBT, individuals are taught that while they cannot  control every aspect of the world  around them, they can take control over how they receive and respond to the world around them.


In SFBT, the session is directed toward developing and achieving the vision of the individual(s). This is done through guided questioning, re-framing and clarifying.

Group sessions are 8 or 12 week ninety minutes sessions scheduled on evening and weekends only.  Minimum of 6 participants per group sessions.

Group goals are to motivate individuals to take charge of their lives and hope for the future.  To obtain a positive and stronger sense of self and to discover and employ personal resources, skills and abilities in their life.

These services are also offered to group homes, churches and organization. Please call for specific needs.
