Exploring options, finding answers and solutions to situations which trouble you. Life can be challenging, and often we can find ourselves at a point where we wonder how to go on.  We get stuck, feel overwhelmed and discouraged and wonder what the next step is.  No matter what your experience is at this time, if you feel like you can benefit from having a therapist collaborate with you to research stuck patterns and personal problems and create options for recovery and self-improvement, then consider contacting me.  Have a look around this web site and contact me with any questions you have.  I am happy to help.

Introduction

During these extraordinary times, we continue to provide support via phone or Zoom to protect our clients and their families, as well as our own. Likewise, DBT Skills Training Groups are available via Zoom as well. Please contact us if you have questions or concerns.

Like many others, we are concerned for the health and well-being of all and encourage the habits outlined by the CDC and other reputable health sites, including washing our hands frequently and maintaining safe physical distances. Doing these simple things together, we can help end the pandemic. Be safe and stay well! - Janette and Heather
