counseling and mental health services
Individual Counseling

Individual counseling is a one-on-one appointment of talk therapy between the client and a mental health therapist. As an active participant in the therapeutic process, the client will direct the conversation on presenting problems, issues, and current symptoms they would like to address.

The therapist may ask questions to better understand the client’s experience and explore the possibility of solutions with the use of personal strengths. Skill-building often occurs in these appointments as well.

Family Counseling

Change is inevitable throughout the lifespan. Families are greatly impacted by such events. Family Counseling is a wonderful way for a family to develop resilience & increase satisfaction in relationships.

All members of the family are active participants in the session and have a role to play in treatment. It is common for clients in family therapy to partake in relationship building exercises along with activities that promote skill-building in the areas of communication, conflict resolution, problem-solving, and coping with symptoms.

Couples Counseling

It is a natural occurrence for close relationships to encounter conflict. Couples Therapy can be a wonderful way for couples to work through issues that may be holding their relationship back. Both individuals are considered clients of the therapist and are encouraged to express their emotions, process issues, and effectively problem solve in a safe, neutral environment.

The therapist may ask to observe the clients’ interactions together, as a couple, to then provide them with interactive opportunities to learn new skills that enhance the relationship. Couples are often given tasks to complete outside of treatment to strengthen these skills through practice.

Erica Bruewer, LMSWMental Health Therapist
I understand that at times, being human is hard. It is natural to have psychological and physical reactions to events, such as life changes, challenges, as well as traumatic experiences. As your therapist, I will help support you by simply being a listening ear and validating your experience. In addition, I can provide you with the opportunity to learn skills for behavioral change and symptom management.

I believe that resilience is in all of us and healing is a path we can choose to walk at any time if we are willing to take the first step. Sometimes even helping professionals need their own helper, someone to listen to their experiences and walk alongside them as they process the challenges of helping. Focusing on secondary trauma and occupational stress issues I believe my role as a therapist is to support clients as they navigate their healing process.

Lizette Chacon, LLMSWMental Health Therapist
As a bilingual therapist (English & Spanish), I am passionate about helping people heal through difficult times, from past trauma, grief and loss, as well as the different challenges one could be facing. I understand that no single approach works for every single individual, therefore I use an eclectic approach to treat each patient’s needs.

As your therapist, I am here to support you, as well as help you learn and grow throughout the process of healing. I understand the value of having someone listen to you, to be in a safe and non-judgmental space, and to feel validated.
