Sometimes life can present struggles for all of us. While problems can seem overwhelming at times, hardships can also result in healthy, positive growth if handled with courage and wisdom. Our goal is to help you manage life’s difficulties in the best way possible. Reaching out for help can feel daunting, so we strive to provide a welcoming, safe environment where you can let your guard down and feel accepted. At life’s crossroads, a warm, compassionate therapeutic relationship can make all the difference in finding the direction you are seeking.
While all of the clinicians at CPD work with adults, many of us have specialties in working with children and adolescents. Several of us specialize in playtherapy for young children and we incorporate parent training when needed. We find that children and teens can benefit from a guiding hand at important developmental phases to help turn the corner in a positive direction.
