Trauma Counseling

Trauma counseling is built on the understanding of how traumatic experiences affect an individual's mental, emotional and physical well-being. This therapy aims to help children, adolescents and adult survivors heal from the effects of trauma by offering skills to better understand and cope with the processing of emotions and memories tied to traumatic experiences.

Support & Education Groups

Groups provide a space for the expression of emotions, with a focus on safety and support; and offer a way to connect with others with similar challenges, which may provide feelings of acceptance, connection, and normalization of responses. Separate groups for youth & adults of various topics are offered periodically throughout the year.

First Responder Support

Our goal is to help support our first responder partner agencies: law enforcement, child protective services, and educators. We encourage them to prioritize and normalize their mental health. Clinicians provide education about the pressures and dynamics of working in crisis and the impact that prolonged exposure and continuous high stress can have on them.
