We believe that therapy and counseling services are a vital part of living a connected and content life.  Therapy promotes wellness, builds self-esteem and insight and improves relationships

For all of us, there can be times when we feel disconnected, off, maybe even trappedThere might be feelings of sadness or fear or confusion.

We are here to help. We believe that changes of perspective, working to understand and manage our thoughts, can bring about a greater sense of connection to not only ourselves but to those around us.

Things can be different. It can get better.

“Connection is why we’re here. We are hardwired to connect with others. It’s what gives purpose and meaning to our lives, and without it there is suffering.”

– Brene Brown

Why Counseling?

Modern counseling is not just sitting on a couch telling someone your life’s story.

Therapy is an incredible tool that can help with many problems including issues at work, working through trauma, conflict with family or significant other, major life changes, anxiety, depression, and even sleep issues.

Therapy helps you use the skills you have and also learn new ones in order to gain control over whatever is causing you concern.

What do I need to bring?

For your first session you will complete an intake packet with consent forms and basic information, either at home to bring with you or in the office.  Otherwise, just bring yourself and your willingness to learn about yourself.

Is this confidential?

Therapy is based on clients feeling secure in the confidentiality of their treatment.  Because we do not bill insurance companies, your information, even the fact that you attend therapy at all, is confidential.  The only exceptions to confidentiality are for immediate safety concerns due to child or elder abuse, suicidal intent or homicidal intent.  

What can I expect?

Therapy is an individual process so each person’s experience will be different.  Expect your therapist to provide a safe place for you to unburden yourself, help you reflect on your thoughts, feeling and experiences, and provide guidance as you shape your future and your relationships.

How long will I have to go?

You and your therapist will discuss your concerns and what you hope to gain from therapy.  Together you will discuss a plan that will meet your needs. Therapy can be as time-limited as 6-8 sessions or may last for a year or more, depending on your needs.  You and your therapist will continually reassess the course of your treatment and make adjustments in timeline and focus to reflect your concerns.

Testimonials

Ragon is an angel and I am so lucky to have her in my life! She does this thing – this magical therapy thing – where she instantly puts you at ease, disarming you with her compassion and kindness and genuine interest in you and what’s going on with you.

Ragon has been amazing for our family. Our son struggles with ADHD and anxiety and life at home had become completely chaotic with constant fighting and stress affecting our other child and our marriage. Ragon showed us how to be effective parents and bring peace to our home. She is so supportive and really listens, not just a one-size-fits-all solution.  She’s great with kids and both of our kids just love her.

I went to CHC because I was interested in getting some parenting help for my 5 year old girl. I met with Ragon, who was truly a joy to work with. Right away I could tell that she had been doing this type of work for a long time. She knew exactly what questions to ask and was full of common sense feedback. She is very easy to talk to.  She is patient and present but also doesn’t waste time. She gets to the heart of an issue and then gives very practical tips and tools that I could use right away.
