"A healthy perspective of reality can enable a person to overcome even the most difficult or troubled times"--Dr. Abraham Twerski

Therapy encourages open and honest dialogue about issues that cause you distress. Through your relationship with your therapist, you’ll work to identify and understand how stressors are impacting your life, plus develop strategies to manage the symptoms.

If you’re still on the fence about the benefits of therapy, consider this: About 75 percent of people who participate in talk therapy experience some benefit, according to the American Psychological Association.

Our therapists provide a warm and judgment free environment where you can tell your story.

depression, anxiety, anger, trauma/PTSD, relationship issues, codependency, substance abuse, sexual issues, gender/sexual orientation concerns, non-traditional relationships issues, and life transitions.  Modern Therapy has among it's staff one of the few therapists in the area who specializes in providing sex therapy.
