Freedom Counseling uses an eclectic group of therapists and therapies to try and reach the varying needs of people in the community. Our main focus is trauma work and helping people let go of conditioned thoughts, beliefs, feelings and behaviors, related to traumatic experiences in life, that leave them feeling stuck and unable to live a better quality of life. We want people to experience the freedom of not being weighed down by their past. We want people to experience the freedom of awareness and acceptance. We are trained in several therapy modalities and are involved in the most cutting edge solutions in the psychology world.

Freedom Counseling offers services to children, teens, young adults, middle aged adults, the elderly, transgender and LGBTQ+ populations, all races, all religions, all cultures and all ethnicities.
