Individual & Couples Counseling
Very often, people don't seek help until they, or those around them, aren't able to tolerate the pain any longer. Some more easily recognize when counseling can be helpful. Others are much more affected by denial and often choose to go it alone and suffer longer than is necessary.  

Counseling Therapy is not about curing a defect.  It is about optimizing your interaction in the world.  You know that you are trying to do your best, but some of your behaviors, thoughts or feelings may be getting in the way of your success.
