At Counseling Associates we provide a unique blend of psychotherapy, education, mindfulness and wellness practices to help you discover your path to recovery and well-being. We believe that wellness requires attention to the body, heart, mind and soul of each individual. In addition to our wholistic approach to counseling services, we offer educational seminars for individuals and couples to provide quality information and training in skills and practices that support mental,emotional and physical health. Please take a few minutes to visit our Associates' pages. We would like to introduce ourselves and tell you something about our unique services.
