Adventure-based Therapy – Family Therapy – Individual Adult or Teen Counseling

Teens are great experimenters, which can get them in a lot of trouble and a lot of hurt. I’ll help your teen get back on their feet and re-connect with what (and WHO) matters. Be warned: Teen Counseling can also be family counseling.


Adventure Therapy is an active and experiential style of therapy that helps clients access vulnerability and authenticity in real world settings. We use activities which are engaging and exciting to create new meaning and perspectives on clients’ struggles and challenges.


When you’re with your family, you should feel home. When wires get crossed in the family it can be painful and confusing. Family counseling is about reconnecting to those who matter most.
