We specialize in working with people who shy away from speaking to a therapist.
People who aren’t shy about seeing a therapist already know they’re not crazy.
That is, they’re already aware of the benefits to therapy. Like those who see the value in taking vitamins for fitness, they value the impact of introspective contemplation and deeper perspective on cognitive, emotional, and interpersonal well-being.
Whether you’re new to therapy or it’s an old hat, it’s often hard to make the initial appointment. We understand the courage it takes to reach out, and we appreciate the effort it takes to find a good, therapeutic fit.
We’re not asking you to sit down, say hello, and share your deepest thought.
We simply ask that you pause. Take a moment to sit and chat. Let’s see where the conversation goes.

Why we do what we do
We do what we do because we know what it means to give, to serve, to sacrifice.
We want to be there for those who always put needs of family, friends, Battle Buddies, Shipmates, Wingmen, or other responsibilities above themselves.
Normal people engage in therapy (a.k.a. counseling) because they understand it’s a tool. What carpenter says “I’m too much of a man, woman, or superhero to use a tool!” Is he/she the tool?”
Normal people use a hammer when the job calls for a hammer. Extraordinary people too often think they can do the job without one.
They can! But can you imagine what they’re fist will look like when they finish?
