Welcome to Family Ties Mental Health Counseling Services

Who We Are

Our Mission

To promote healing in families and individuals, by treating mental health and substance use disorders.  A change in one member of the family can stimulate change throughout the entire family system, as members affect each other in both positive and negative ways.  We seek to mend the ties that bind a family together.   We seek to cultivate hope.

Our Treatment Focus

Our focus is to help individuals heal, love, and become aware of their inner strengths.  We achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a treatment plan.   We  treat adults and children.  When treating children, we work with their parents and school, with the parents' permission.

Our Client and Patient Promise

We promise to be there for you every step of your journey. Our goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life.

Our Therapy


Children and teenagers are often challenged with many struggles. We want to make it convenient and possible for your children to attend therapy sessions.  We provide outpatient therapy services in the home to help children and families overcome problem issues and heal.  We also provide outpatient counseling services for many insurance companies in the office.


Trauma & PTSD

Many individuals can experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic circumstances.  Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are a few emotions that can linger after post traumatic events.  We can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. 


Substance Use and Behavioral Addictions

     Our therapists are highly trained in substance use and behavioral addictions.   We provide outpatient therapy with the option to call in between appointments for accountability and to assist clients/patients in focusing on their recovery goals.  We can tailor a relapse prevention plan suited to your unique needs.   We are able to do drug testing on site.

     Addiction is a family disease, and our therapists are able to treat the family of the addicted, too.  Addiction causes many lifelong problems for the family of the addicted--codependency and false survival roles.  We are skilled at working with adult children of alcoholics that are still affected by the dysfunction of their past.  Let us help you move past the dysfunction of your past,
