You Are In Good Hands

In an atmosphere of safety, compassion and support, we provide in-office, in-person support services, through counseling, assessment and psychotherapy to parents, children, adolescents, adults, couples, families and groups.

We are a group of Licensed Professional Counselors (LPCC), Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFT), Licensed Psychologists (Ph.D. or Psy.D.), and we also have Registered Associates (Associate LPCC, Associate LMFT). You can verify our licence information at the Department of Human Affairs License Search website (enter either Board of Behavioral Sciences or Board of Psychology, depending upon the license).

We serve our clients at our office in Lafayette, and we also offer consultation by phone and video-conferencing to teens, adults and parents in California on a case-by-case basis.

Our clients:

  • Gain insight about themselves, their relationships and connections with others
  • Learn and practice listening and communication skills
  • Use mindful awareness and relaxation techniques
  • Learn to understand their emotions—including their function and how to better manage emotions
  • Learn to understand and manage their intensities (and to have greater awareness of their reactivity)
  • Learn to set appropriate boundaries, and to recognize and ask for what they need to grow inter-personally
