We are now offering telehealth sessions by way of our Therapynotes Portal which is the patient portal that you will have access when you are a client of ours. You will sign in with your own username and password where you will then be directly connected to your therapist at the time of your session with one easy click of the button to start your telehealth session. This platform is much safer than Zoom and is designed specifically for mental health services offering you all of the HIPAA compliant safety and security you need for your video session. The portal is also used to share important patient information, to send and receive documents and to easily check to see when your next session is scheduled.
Aside from counseling services, we also host Support Groups and Wellness Workshops so you can work through your problems with other people that understand. Please see our “what’s new” section to find out what groups are currently being offered

Association for Play Therapy (APT) defines play therapy as “the systematic use of a theoretical model to establish an interpersonal process wherein trained play therapists use the therapeutic powers of play to help clients prevent or resolve psychosocial difficulties and achieve optimal growth and development.”
In the textbook Play Therapy: The Art of the Relationship (3rd ed.), Landreth (2012) defined child-centered play therapy:
As a dynamic interpersonal relationship between a child (or person of any age) and a therapist trained in play therapy procedures who provides selected play materials and facilitates the development of a safe relationship for the child (or person of any age) to fully express and explore self (feelings, thoughts, experiences, and behaviors) through play, the child’s natural medium of communication, for optimal growth and development. (p. 11)
Neurofeedback is a form of biofeedback which is a process that provides information directly to the brain and helps it to readjust. Neurofeedback directly effects the brain and brain waves that have become dis-regulated due to chronic stress or PTSD. Neurofeedback sends a signal to the brain waves similar to putting a mirror to the brain and showing the brain what it is doing so that it can take that information and self-correct. Neurofeedback helps to change brain wave patterns allowing clients to get “unstuck” in their ruminating thoughts, worries, anxiety, flashbacks and obsessive thinking. It helps to change the brain waves associated with depression and an overactive or under-active brain. It allows people to feel calmer, happier and more at ease.
Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) is a type of psychotherapy especially designed to help people heal from trauma or other distressing life events. EMDR uses eye movements or other bilateral stimulation to help people process disturbing memories. It works with the brain and the way memories are stored. EMDR processes the traumatic material including the image, negative thoughts about oneself, emotions and body sensations that are tied with the memory. Once the memory and the associated sensations are processed then a person is no longer consciously or unconsciously re-living the experience. People will report nightmares stopping, sleep improving, improved self-esteem, reduced shame and isolation as well as many more benefits.
EMDR and Neurofeedback combined:
As we continue to discover more and more about the brain, we know that research findings continue to support the efficacy of these two therapies. Combining Neurofeedback and EMDR therapy is proving to be a highly effective combination, particularly in the treatment of PTSD and chronic stress conditions.
