Beyond the clouds of fear and doubt lies the Sun, steady and fixed in the heavens. There is always Light after the darkness. - H. Owen Ward Ph.D.


Because we care

We offer a wide range of psychological and counseling services to all ages. We offer treatment for most emotional, behavioral, school, work or relationship problems including anxiety, depression, addictions and PTSD. We work with individuals, couples and families and correspond with physicians when health care is central to recovery. We also help workers maintain their employment while they are recovering from their mental illness and mediate conflict with employers so they can keep their job. In the case of injured workers covered by the BWC we advocate for our patients through their attorney and physicians to maximize their treatment and maintain their compensation.

We have more than 20 years of working with BWC injured workers in helping them adjust to limitations they have encountered due to their work place injury and deal with the stress created by the adversarial process of the BWC.

Our purpose is to provide comprehensive mental health care to meet all your needs.

He has extensive training in Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Crisis Intervention Management. On a personal level "My faith frames my world view and thus my approach to counseling. Jesus Christ is my personal Lord, Master and Savior in whom I put my faith and trust. Any worthwhile wisdom I may have in helping others, I attribute to Him. I believe every person deserves compassion, love, kindness, respect and dignity. I believe all human life is sacred, created by God in His image and is of inestimable value. I believe what is not needed in counseling is further judgment, guilt shame or condemnation. I seek to help individuals regardless of their faith, background, ethnicity or life perspective to achieve their own personal treatment goals.
