Children age 6 and up
If your child is struggling with emotional or behavioral problems, we can be of help. When a child is excessively disruptive, irritable, misbehaving at home and/or in school, or fearful and sad for long periods of time, it may be a sign of a psychological problem that would requires treatment. Especially when such issues interfere with everyday life and keep your child from missing important parts of childhood, it’s important to intervene.
At Exhale, we treat children age 6 and up, because our help is the most effective when the child is old enough to be an active participant in the therapeutic process. We treat children with behavioral or emotional problems, recovering from traumatic events, or coping with family issues. Our focus is on making your child feel safe and free to express themselves. Play therapy, art, and open dialogue help our therapists get to the root of the issue and use interventions to help your child feel happier and succeed.
Tweens and teens
For many families, a child’s transition from childhood to adulthood can be a bumpy ride. Your teen is developing unique personality traits, exploring their identity, and discovering what they want in life. At the same time, your child is learning to understand new and more complex emotions, experiencing physical and hormonal changes, and navigating increasingly difficult social situations. Needless to say, all of this and more, brings a lot of stress, insecurity, and anxiety to teenagers.
At Exhale, we treat teens dealing with any hurdles they may encounter as they transition to becoming an adult. Depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and self-injurious behavior is common in teens. These problems can interfere with everyday life and a teen’s development, but they can also escalate and lead to dangerous consequences. Our therapists work with adolescents to unpack the challenges they’re facing, discover new perspectives, build confidence, and learn effective coping skills.
Young adults to seniors
Adulthood is complicated, and we could all use someone to confide in. Whether you are a young adult navigating work, school, and relationships, or a senior going into retirement – each stage of adulthood brings with it struggles and concerns. On top of that, life can get messy and we have to cope with disappointment, complex challenges, adversity, and grief, as we experience milestones or a wrench is tossed in our plans for life.
Issues such as depression, panic and anxiety, imbalances, frustration, sleep problems, and low self-esteem can be debilitating and unfair – but you are never alone. At Exhale, our therapists are there for you to help you sort through your thoughts and feelings, get to the bottom of the challenges in your path, and find the strength within yourself to work towards a solution. Whether you have complex issues that need discovered and treated, or you are just not feeling as happy, content, and fulfilled as you want, therapy can help.

Partners in an intimate relationship
Love, trust, communication, connection, patience, and mutual respect are some of the most important elements of a healthy relationship. More often than not, couples could benefit to work on one or more of these elements to improve their relationship and experience more love and joy because of it. Additionally, the complexities of life can put a strain on your relationship and create challenges along the way. Frequent arguing, poor communication, a diminished feeling of intimacy, or infidelity can make it difficult to continue your relationship, no matter how badly you may want to stay together.
A therapist can be an impartial mediator, translator, and facilitator as you and your partner work through issues and try to mend your bond. We can help you find each other again, and revitalize the love you once shared or strengthen your connection.
We believe that how a couple defines themselves is what matters – we meet with couples regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, legal status, or length of relationship.
