Excellence in PTSD Treatment

If you had a rough childhood or just have had some experiences that keep bubbling back up despite all your efforts to move past it, you're in the right place. Hope For The Journey specializes in trauma recovery--particularly involving sexual issues like sexual abuse, assault, domestic violence, etc...

Excellence in Panic and Anxiety Treatment

You've been struggling for a while with excessive worry and fear of another panic attack happening. You're finding it harder and harder to do the most basic things. We can help. We can teach you the skills you need to manage your anxiety and the safety you need to explore and understand it better.

Excellence in Depression Help

You are struggling to get out of bed some days. It feels like you're walking through water and you just want the pain to end. We understand how tough it can be to fight your way out of a depressed episode. We can help you find your motivation and support you in taking those first most difficult steps.

Excellence in Online Therapy

We've been doing online therapy for years, so the move to 100% online during our current crisis was pretty smooth. We focus on making sure you know what to do and feel comfortable. We can help you create privacy even if you're working from home with all your family around you. We can provide the same clinical services and level of excellence you deserve. Many people even find they like online services better because it feels nice to be in the comfort of their own homes.
