It’s important to remember things often feel messier before they fall back into place.

Each meeting is another opportunity to help you confidently take charge and start living the life that’s important to you.
What is Dialectical Behavior Therapy?
How do I refer my adult loved one (spouse, sibling, parent) to therapy?
There are often times when you notice a loved one experiencing pain or lack of control in an area of their life, but they aren’t ready to accept it. Whether they are struggling with trauma, anger, addiction or something else, guiding them toward therapy can be a difficult conversation, but a worthwhile one.
Approach your loved one with compassion and listen to their concerns about therapy. For additional assistance with your conversation, feel free to print out this brochure.
What should I expect on my first visit?
Make an appointment by clicking here. We will then send you a welcome email including necessary forms to be filled out and signed. These forms are:
- Release of Information (ROI)

Your first day will involve meeting your therapist and establishing a place for a relationship to grow. Depending on your situation, the therapist might begin with an assessment of what you’re dealing with. This will also be a good time to bring up any trigger words or topics that make you particularly uncomfortable. This will help your relationship form on an open foundation from the start.
If you are bringing your child to therapy, please fill out these forms before your first visit.
