Why “Float On”?

Some things in life are just unavoidable and sometimes we carry it all with us, weighing us down. It was important to evoke the feeling that we can rise above and float on. There are trained professionals willing and able to help you lift the burdens of yesterday so you can truly pursue the life you dreamed of having. It is possible, so rise up and float on!

Who do we help?

We help individuals who are “stuck” in life or who are silently struggling with issues such as: major life changes, establishing meaning and purpose, isolation from family and friends, career/relationship ruts, stress, anxiety, fear, and depression.

We care about your experience. 

We understand that asking for professional help can be overwhelming, so we aim to make the process as smooth and comfortable as possible! In our office, you are always in a judgment-free zone in company of a counselor who understands the powerful and positive impact good therapy can have on anyone who seeks it! Your privacy and confidentiality are always a top priority.
