“You deserve to have everything your heart desires. Happiness, success, perfect health, loving relationships, financial abundance, and peace of mind are your birthright. And they are there for the taking. Through positive, consistent visualization, your life will change, it will become the life you have always longed for, always dreamed about. There are no limitations with what you can have, achieve or be. Any limitations you feel there are, are only in your mind, and can be eradicated, SHOULD be eradicated. The sky is the limit. Make a promise to yourself that today, from this very moment, is the first day on your journey to total transformation. No more procrastination, no more 'starting on Monday', no more 'I'm too busy'. The time is now. Allow magic and miracles into your life.” ~ Excerpt From Creative Visualization: 33 Guided Visualization Scripts to Create the Life of Your Dreams
"You don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step."
- Martin Luther King, Jr.

Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, we are able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
You may experience depressive or other mental health symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances. Anxiety, fear, anger, helplessness, unwarranted guilt and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger post traumatic events. We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of pain, bewilderment, and overwhelming despair toward healing and mental wellness.
Relationship counseling is advantageous to couples, whether courting or married, who are seeking to strengthen their emotional bond, in all stages of their relationship and through life transitions. Even the joyful times of a relationship, such as a wedding or the birth of a long-awaited baby, can create unexpected stress, anxiety, and depressed mood. Conflicts arise due to the daily grind, financial stress, and life’s harsh realities. Therapy sessions are held with both individuals and as a couple in a supportive place, to discuss issues and solutions to grow and strengthen your relationship.
