Tired of Feeling Stuck?
We all need help from time to time. Whether you find yourself repeating harmful patterns that are difficult to break, struggling with a critical voice in your head that never lets up, feeling disconnected and unsatisfied in relationships, going through a career or life transition, feeling stuck, or tired of struggling with symptoms such as anxiety or depression, counseling can help you move forward. A counselor can offer practical assistance, support, compassion, a different perspective, new strategies, and coping skills so that you can make deep and lasting changes in your life. Our counselors each pursue specialized training so that they are experts in their area of expertise. Our counseling services serve a diverse range of needs for the whole family. Each therapist is trained in one or more specialty areas to ensure that they understand how to help you with your unique concerns.
We believe in your ability to transform yourself and your life situation for lasting positive change.
Regardless of your life situation or experiences, you were born with unique potential and the capacity to grow, heal and change. Our purpose is to help you know your own unique worth at a deep level, to cultivate your potential and activate your inner resiliency, to provide skills for getting unstuck, coping with symptoms such as anxiety and depression, and to help you live according to your core values and needs.
Sometimes lack of awareness and feelings of fear, powerlessness, isolation, not belonging, inadequacy, or unworthiness get in the way. But, these emotions don’t have to control you or hold you back. You have the power to move forward. A counselor can help you develop the self-compassion and self-acceptance necessary to embrace your inner resources and overcome obstacles in your way. Practically, we like to help you identify and build skills to serve you in the long run. Life is stressful and chances are, things will come up again and again. Our goal is to help you build a solid foundation of skills and resources you can use as you encounter additional stressors throughout your life.
Through open and honest communication and exploration, you can unlock your ability to lead an authentic, courageous, and joyful life. Let us help you find your strengths within, build skills, and move toward a life you’d love to live.

What Clients Are Saying
What Clients Are Saying
My therapist is so empathetic and an excellent listener. I feel comfortable talking to her and truly look forward to our sessions. I am very pleased. Emotions that were once overwhelming and difficult to regulate are now easier to sit through without negatively impacting my mood and behaviors. It is also beneficial to have someone I can talk to who is unrelated to the trauma and will validate and give me a space to get it out.
Empathetic & Understanding
Joan is very empathetic and understanding and is someone who shows a lot of compassion for her clients. She helped me learn a lot about myself through the advanced Myers Briggs personality assessment and explained things in a clear and concise manner. She is also someone who has “skin in the game” when it comes to career counseling, having transitioned from one career into another entirely.
I feel she is a part of my family since she shows genuine interest in how they impact my therapy, and she helps me put things into proper prospective. I trust her completely.
In My Corner
Steve’s ability to listen and process my feelings without judgement makes me feel like he’s always in my corner.
Diana is an excellent listener, she really helps me work through the issues I face and provides a lot of excellent coping tools/ideas.
I am very pleased. Greta is very understanding, and perfect for me. I am very comfortable with her, because she is so easy to talk to. Greta always remembers our conversations and is on spot with what I need. After the 2nd session I was hooked.
Pleasant & Warm
Jenet is great. She is very pleasant, a great listener, and warm. I feel when I leave it is always with a plan for the next step, and that is very important for me.
Great Conversation Starter
Sessions are going very well with Ametis. I like her ability to create a comfortable and open environment. She is a great conversation starter, and it’s easy to express ourselves about anything. Ametis is very welcoming and a great listener.
Sarah, I love her. EMDR has made a tremendous difference in my life. She is very easy to relate to. I appreciate that she validates me. That’s important. Sarah is the youngest therapist I have seen and she is perfect.
Randi is great. She is definitely the unbiased opinion we needed, and can see improvement in our relationship.
Randi is awesome. She is a great listener. She gives sound advice and has a great personality. She increased my ability to conceptualize my feelings, and increased positive outlook on life overall.
Steven has been great. We have very productive sessions. He is a great listener and has brought things to light that I never was aware of. He has a good perspective and is very easy going. I am learning a lot about myself thanks to him.
I love, love, love Joan! She did a really great job explaining the process step by step. The personality profile was incredibly helpful and insightful. I really enjoyed working with her.
Easy to Connect With
Holly is easy to connect with, and offers action suggestions over just talking.
Genuine & Effective
Steven has been helpful on multiple levels including relationships and career, and a big life change. I feel like he has the same mentality when it comes to interfacing with the world and I think he is genuine, which makes the therapy extremely effective.
Greta was great. We like her a lot. Our session was very productive and made a huge difference.
Gift for Understanding
I had a great experience working with Greta Bellinger. She has a real gift for understanding intimate relationships and helping them to heal and develop into something amazing.
I think having someone listen to me – non judgmentally and let me go through things on mind is of number one importance. Second, she (Alex) is present and seems to have a good awareness of when to reach in and ask questions and when to let the information just flow.
Present & Empathetic
I think that Alex is very present with you, and she seems to modify her approach over time after more pieces come together about what I need to get off my chest and go over. It is obvious that she is an empathetic person and wants to be there for you.
Intuitive, Focused, Caring
Andrew is just amazing. He is extremely professional, a great listener and bright spot in my life. He is intuitive, focused and extremely caring. He made me feel comfortable immediately. He is non-judgmental and the kind of person/therapist who you feel you can talk about anything with.
Thoughtful & Insightful
I have known Andrew for 5 years and I have seen, first hand, the level of care, effort, and dedication, he brings to every counseling session. I highly recommend him to anyone. He embodies what a good therapist should be and will do his best to help anyone who crosses his path. He is thoughtful, insightful, and most importantly, he listens and values honest and authentic connection with others.
I appreciated that Steven explain how everything is going to go and clearly set up expectations. – marriage counseling
Sarah has a similar background, which makes her easy to talk to about my issues, since she can relate. I am managing my anxiety better and I feel like I’m letting go of some emotional baggage.

Thank you for walking with me through some of the most challenging and sometimes dark days of my life. In the beginning, our sessions felt like a life line, a safe harbor, a place to be myself. Soon, I began to feel like a kid on a training bike, and now I feel like I’m riding on my own.

I am so very thankful for her!

I was very satisfied with Ms. Dove. She challenged you in kind, non-judgmental ways and I feel she helped me to make a lot of progress. I would recommend her in a heartbeat. She was personable, caring, responsive, professional- I feel very lucky to have ended up with Ms. Dove and wish her all the best moving forward. If I ever need to go back to counseling, I’ll go back to her or hope to find someone like her.
My therapist was very good at making an environment in which I felt comfortable and ready to discuss difficult issues.
