Feeling Better Starts Here

We are a team of caring therapy professionals
dedicated to helping you get the happiness you deserve.

You Weren’t Meant To Solve Every Problem On Your Own

Because struggling to feel better on your own can be a lonely battle. And sometimes, you need to reach out and ask for help.
Whatever brought you here today know that you are not alone and you are one step closer to feeling better.

 

Mary Joan Brinson MSW, RSW
“We know how hard it is to ask for help. It takes courage. To contact someone you’ve never met and share that you’re struggling. But we encourage you to take that first step. Because we know what’s waiting for you on the other side.
A better way to live.”
Mary Joan Brinson MSW, RSW
Certified EFT Therapist & Clinical Director

We Believe Getting Help Should Be Easy

 

Because we understand how discouraging and stressful life can be when you don’t have
the support you need. Getting help shouldn’t be difficult too.

 

You want to feel safe and secure with people you can trust. That is why you can request a therapist or have one carefully chosen for you. Each therapist is trained with expertise in trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, perinatal mood disorders and couples therapy.

Our Team is Built Around A Common Desire to Help

We share a joint vision to offer a safe place where people can do this important work.
