Many adults suffer from stress and worry related to everyday life. If normal stress turns into excessive and ongoing worry, fear, confusion, long-lasting sadness, irritability, mood swings or grief, it may be time to seek help from a professional who can support you through difficult times. Major life changes such as divorce, a new job, a move, or the loss of a loved one can also make it difficult to carry on with life. Therapy might be just what you need to feel better.

When you seek adult therapy services it is normal to feel nervous. However, we are here to help you feel comfortable. You will first undergo an assessment where you share your physical and mental health history, discuss challenges, and outline your personal goals for therapy. From there we work with you to determine the best course of treatment. The adult therapy process follows six steps:
Step 1: Call for more information and to find out how we can best serve you.
Step 2: If you choose to continue, we will send paperwork for you to complete and return.
Step 3: Schedule an appointment.
Step 4: With your permission, we will text appointment reminders.
Step 5: At your first appointment, we will work with you to determine your goals, build a relationship, and work together to create an individualized treatment plan.
Step 6: Visit with the therapist about additional appointments and schedule as appropriate. In some cases, the therapist will set up the appointments. In other cases, our receptionist will contact you after your appointment.
