As the world struggles with this issue of enormous scale and human impact, our hearts go out to all who have been affected by the outbreak.  At Life in Progress, our goal is to continue helping you through this crisis while doing all we can to protect you.
The health, well being and comfort of everyone that enters has always been foremost in our minds.  We have always strived to provide a clean, safe environment.  I want you to know that we are taking this virus seriously and have taken the following additional actions:
1.  We have always professionally cleaned the office twice a week and will continue this schedule.
2.  The cleaning teams are using anti-bacterial supplies, cleaning doors, door knobs, light switches, chair arms and flat surfaces.
3.  Anti-bacterial hand sanitizers have been placed in the lobby and the restrooms for everyone’s use.
4.  Surgical masks have been ordered, will be delivered mid-April, for your protection.
5.  We have asked all therapists to monitor their health and stay home if they suspect any illness.  We ask the same from you.

I want to thank you for your trust in us, your mental and physical health is the sole reason we are here.  It is our intent to remain transparent, providing the latest information and being open to address your needs.

We are privileged to help you and our community and look forward to assisting you.

Congratulations for taking the first step towards improving the quality of your life. I understand how difficult this can be and I am here to help. Whether you are looking to understand yourself, your relationships, or the pain you are experiencing I provide professional guidance in a safe and supportive environment. Together, we can work through whatever problems, frustrations, pain or other issues you may be facing.

I will help you reach your goals in a way that honors your individual needs, values and beliefs. Whether you've come for couples counseling, short term help through a crisis, a stage of life transition or deeper work, I will help you through the pain, doubt and fear to reach a better place, without judgment.

I offer an eclectic approach to therapy (family systems therapy, cognitive therapy, eye movement desensitation response (EMDR), emotionally focused therapy (EFT) and psycho-dynamic therapy) that will be determined by your particular needs. Research has shown that these therapies are highly effective in resolving feelings of depression, anxiety, traumatic pain, family and/or relationship issues.

You've taken the hardest step, now simply send me an e-mail or call to schedule a time to begin your journey to a happier you. A life in balance.
