We also provide diagnostic educational and psychological testing to identify learning problems and weaknesses, or gifted abilities. Moreover, we offer career counseling and aptitude testing to guide you towards the right career field.

Woman’s Counseling

As a woman, you have the right to dignity, autonomy, and security. Unfortunately, many disgruntled and chauvinistic men resort to abusing women to assert their dominance. Moreover, abuse is not limited to sexual or physical abuse. Verbal insults, and constant yelling and badgering are also considered abuse under the law. We have helped women overcome their problems in by providing one-on-one, compassionate, and nonjudgmental counseling, safety planning, seminars, support groups, workshops, and service referrals.

Assertiveness and Self Esteem

If you are suffering from lack of assertiveness in your life and need help taking command and being proactive we can help you become a motivational dynamo. Furthermore, we have helped men and women enhance their self-esteem and self-worth in an empowering, yet pragmatic manner.

Co-dependent Relationships

A co-dependent relationship is a relationship that involves obsessive, altruistic, or narcissistic attachment that hinders one’s well-being and conventional way of life. We can help you regain your self-confidence, self-esteem, and independence or help you end a co-dependent relationship with a maladaptive and malevolent lover in a safe and calm manner.

Sexual Abuse Treatment

If you have been a victim of sexual abuse and need help moving on and dealing with your feelings of betrayal and violation, then we can help by confronting and subsequently eliminating the trauma.
