Our goal as therapists is to create a warm, supportive environment in which our clients can begin to understand their feelings while discovering what barriers may exist that limit their full potential.

At 2nd Story Counseling, we take an eclectic approach to client wellness and honor the client’s work life, family traditions and sexual orientation – as well as cultural & spiritual beliefs.
