Counseling and Hypnosis are complementary therapies that could help empower you to make the changes you want to see in your life.  These therapies can be used concurrently or individually.  Our therapists will be happy to answer your questions.  


Self Awareness Therapy using the IFS model focuses on developing insight and building on your personal strengths.  Through therapy, you can change self-destructive behaviors and habits, resolve painful feelings and improve your relationships.  The Internal Family Systems (IFS) model has evolved over the past twenty years into a comprehensive approach to help individuals, couples, and/or families through empowerment to address issues such as:

  • Anxiety and Depression
  • Worries or Fears
  • Past Abuse or Trauma
  • Relationships issues
  • Coping with Grief or Loss
  • Alcohol or Drug Problems
  • Difficulty with Motivation or Goal Setting

"IFS is more than a therapeutic technique. It is a conceptual framework and practice for developing love for ourselves and each other.”  - Richard C. Schwartz, Ph.D.
