Everyone needs a supportive and non-judgemental person to speak to about matters that concern them. Sometimes these issues can be a normal part of life like choosing a new job or having a baby, and sometimes these issues are more complex like depression or anxiety. Individual therapy is a confidential way to process your thoughts and feelings and get professional help towards attaining your goals for well-being.

Couples therapy can help solve underlying issues by opening communication, improving problem-solving skills as a couple and proactively tacking issues at hand.
