​Hypnotherapy is guided hypnosis, or a trance-like state of focus and concentration achieved with the help of a clinical hypnotherapist. This trance-like state is similar to being completely absorbed in a book, movie, music, or even one's own thoughts or meditations. In this state, clients can turn their attention completely inward to find and utilize the natural resources deep within themselves that can help them make changes or regain control in certain areas of their life.​

​Hypnotherapy can be used to treat anxiety, phobias, substance abuse including tobacco, sexual dysfunction, undesirable spontaneous behaviors, and bad habits. It can be used to help improve sleep, learning disorders, communication, and relationship issues. Hypnotherapy can aid in pain management and help resolve medical conditions such as digestive disorders, skin issues, and gastrointestinal side effects of pregnancy and chemotherapy.

Individual Counseling

 Couples counseling is for married and unmarried couples who are looking to increase  connectedness, resolve conflict, deepen intimacy and to work through stages of life and  challenges. Even the best relationships may need some adjustment or foundation work in  order for both individuals to move forward together. This is a type of therapy that  addresses the relationship and is framed around supporting one another to explore and  understand similarities and differences with respect and compassion for  yourself and  your partner. Most of our couples counseling sessions are 90 minute appointments.

PLAY THERAPY

This form of therapy specializes in treating relationships within the family. Counseling for the family may require collaboration as a unit, or individually. The counselor helps the family to understand one's self in relation to the whole family, family patterns, communication styles and relationships. This is achieved through discussions, treatment planning and problem- solving sessions. We work with families to help with forming clear roles and expectations, learning and practicing compassionate communication, parenting styles and re-establish or strengthen healthy roles within the family. 
*For parents: Many times you may feel like they have lost a sense of respect and control with your children. Family counseling can be helpful for re-establishing health in learning skills to regain control, form new communication styles and rebuild trust. 

Play therapy is a form of therapy used primarily for children. That’s because children may not be able to process their own emotions or articulate problems to parents or other adults. While it may look like an ordinary playtime, play therapy can be much more than that. A trained therapist can use playtime to observe and gain insights into a child’s problems. The therapist can then help the child explore emotions and deal with unresolved trauma. Through play, children can learn new coping mechanisms and how to redirect inappropriate behaviors. Call today to discuss the benefits of play therapy!

Couples Counseling

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a psychotherapy treatment that was originally designed to alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories. After successful treatment with EMDR therapy, affective distress is relieved, negative beliefs are reformulated, and physiological arousal is reduced. During EMDR therapy the client attends to emotionally disturbing material in brief sequential doses while simultaneously focusing on an external stimulus. Therapist directed lateral eye movements are the most commonly used external stimulus but a variety of other stimuli including hand-tapping and audio stimulation are often used.
