What services does your practice offer?

We love serving individuals, families, and couples from diverse backgrounds.

Many of the individuals we serve struggle with depression, anxiety, or patterns of ineffective communication. Others struggle with parenting or co-parenting after divorce/separation or navigating cultural expectations.

We are a trauma-informed practice and specialize in the treatment of traumatic experiences in life, including discrimination, violence, chronic and complex trauma, and sexual abuse.

Why should I choose your practice?

We have complete trust in you to make choices that promote your growth and health, and we use evidenced-based modalities and will collaborate with you to develop strategies that will help you reach your treatment goals.

At Halcyon, we welcome individuals, couples, and families of all backgrounds, orientations, and identities.

Our relationship is one of the most important factors in therapy. We would love for you to reach out to use to see if we are a good fit.
