Depression is a diagnosable mental health condition with symptoms including apathy, feelings of hopelessness or sadness, loss of interest or pleasure in activities, thoughts of suicide, too much or not enough sleep, fatigue, and social isolation.

Substance Abuse

A physical dependence on drugs and/or alcohol, strong ongoing urges to use drugs and/or drugs despite facing severe consequences are key parts of a substance use disorder. Counseling can help you manage triggers so you can live your life without drugs and/or alcohol.

Adjustment & Transitions

A significant change to everyday life can create challenges that are difficult to manage. Moving to a new town, marriage/divorce, having children, starting a new job/losing a job, and academic transitions are just a few examples. Adapting to changes requires mental flexibility, even when the change is positive.

Eating Concerns, Self-Esteem, & Body Image

Nearly 1 in 10 people in the U.S. struggle with an eating disorder at some point in their lives. Recovering from an eating disorder requires professional help to manage obsessive thoughts and behaviors and then replace them with healthy ones.

Grief & Loss

Grief is our natural response to loss. Grief encompasses a range of emotions like sadness, anger, and guilt. The grief process can become problematic if it is negatively affecting your physical and mental wellbeing.


People who identify as part of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQIA+) community are more likely to experience mental health conditions and/or have adverse experiences that negatively affect their mental health.


ADHD symptoms make it difficult to complete everyday tasks — both in childhood and as an adult. Chronic lateness, disorganization, and difficulty finishing tasks are just a few problematic symptoms. ADHD counseling can help you understand how ADHD affects you and how you can successfully manage ADHD behaviors.

Relationships (include non-traditional)

Unhealthy relationship dynamics, broken trust, and ineffective communication are just a few signs your relationship is in trouble. While couples counseling is often used to address these types of problems, it can also be helpful at any stage of a relationship. Couples counseling can strengthen relationships through increased understanding and improved communication.

Women's Issues

Women face enormous pressure, making it challenging to feel balanced and confident. Difficulties can arise in pregnancy, post-partum, aging. Also, juggling endless tasks, facing a never ending to-do list can leave women feeling anxious, unfulfilled, and depressed.


Trauma can occur as a result of a singular event or from repeated/ongoing exposure to a traumatic situation. It can cause many problems, from disrupted sleep patterns, nightmares, nausea, to panic attacks, addiction, and suicidal thoughts.
