Get Help for Depression, Anxiety, Stress, and Trauma
We understand that you are reading about psychotherapy because you may be feeling your life slip out of control.

We want to help you feel less confused and more clear about your emotional struggles without costing your pocketbook a ridiculous amount of money.

Benefits of Psychotherapy
Research shows that most people who attend five sessions of talk therapy report reduced symptoms of anxiety, depression, or trauma.
Many people who are going through a difficult life situation do not want to discuss their feelings with friends and family, leaving them more isolated and more likely to suffer from symptoms of depression and anxiety. Psychotherapy helps people to get the support they need.
We believe that most problems people seek therapy for come from difficult experiences in their family life, work life, or in the community that are causing emotional symptoms.
Although many people worry that having mental health symptoms means there is something wrong with them or that they might be permanently mentally ill, in fact most people do not need years of treatment to get better. Most people need short-term therapy and their symptoms improve.
Depression, anxiety, acute stress disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder are treatable disorders that can be healed.
