My heart lights up by helping children, age 13 and under. It is so important that children have a solid foundation. Not every child is lucky enough to have a smooth ride. That's where I come in. Children, just like adults, want to be heard and understood. Except they often need the ability to play to tell their story. I give them that place to play, heal and grow stronger. The young ones I work with struggle with self-esteem, excessive energy, impulsiveness, anger, sadness, anxiety, worry, friends or family changes. They long to have friends, get healthy attention, belong and be loved. And if there is trauma, I have special training in EMDR which can be used to tackle painful memories and help them heal and adapt in a new way. I also am certified in Play Therapy, that is a creative means to help teach children new skills and behaviors and best of all, they don't even know they are learning - they just believe we are having fun together. Those lessons help build strength, better adapting and stronger relationships outside the therapy room.

We've all struggled at one point or another. Sometimes life is a difficult puzzle. At one point in my life the puzzle pieces of my own family were a difficult, painful place. Then, we worked with a family therapist. That counselor helped us put the puzzle of our family together. Because of that, I experienced the powerful impact of counseling with my own family. Therapy was life changing for me and my family. I know I have two family members here on earth with me because of the therapy process. That got me hooked! So I went to school to learn how to help have that impact as a counselor. Now, I am privileged to help people improve who might feel lost, broken and beyond repair in their own lives.
What about you? Have you ever felt like you lost your relationships or yourself? Or that your problems are too complicated? Then, I would love to help you figure out how all the pieces of your own life puzzle fit together. Trauma, depression, life challenges...messy mental health doesn't scare me. In fact, I enjoy figuring out the steps away from stagnation and mental pain. I help people discover ways out of the stuck and dark places. Together. In my office I will always work FOR you. The two of us against the world FOR YOU. It's safe to go over those dark parts of your experiences with me and I will be here to help carry the weight. Together, we will collaborate on the steps needed for you to rediscover peace and meaning. Also, as I am currently working under supervision, so you will enjoy combined wisdom working for you along with my own creative and dedicated style. These are powerful tools for your benefit.
I also love to help with transitions in life. Transitions can be the perfect time to make changes. Even sad events: difficult health diagnosis, coping with a death of a loved one, job loss or changes, returning to school, relationships ending. Those events can be opportunities for increased self-awareness, peace and a chance to identify a brighter future. In tough moments it can be so comforting to have a guide. I can guide and help you rediscover or learn what is possible for the next phase of your life. My personal credo is to try to leave the world better than I found it. Empowering you to advocate for yourself, accepting and identifying your strengths and finding a more peaceful outlook does that.
My clients tell me that after working together they feel like they know and like themselves better. That is everything to me. Clients describe my collaborative style as genuine, empowering, honest and sometimes humorous. I thoroughly enjoy this work which keeps me motivated and dedicated to you. Finally, on a personal note I am married, a parent and have a whole house full of rescued pets. And, when I am not working or at home with my family or baking (like seriously fancy wedding cakes) you can find me out running. I love to run. And, I love to help people have those magical “ah ha moments.” Moments when things that didn't make sense before do. Or, my client understands how to cope in a better place than they did a few seconds before. Talk to me, we can work together to figure out how the puzzle pieces of your life fit together so you can have a complete picture of where you are and where you want to be.

Have you ever heard the expression… when we change the way we look at things, the things we look at change? Counseling is a safe place to learn to experience things differently. I will hear you and work to truly understand your story; then we will work together on whatever is troubling you. Life can be difficult for all ages so I am here to work with your child, teenager, or you - alone or together with your partner. Couples therapy can help heal relationships.
I will help you learn to recognize the impact that past traumatic experiences or harmful relationships had on how you perceive and interact with the world around you. I offer strength-based treatments that are culturally and spiritually-sensitive to help you recognize negative patterns and take actual steps toward a healthier lifestyle.
My passion is to help you discover your inner potential and to empower you to achieve healing in your life and relationships. It is possible to rewrite your story, let me help you or your child take steps to a brighter future - starting now. Call to schedule an appointment. (Tambien ofrezco mis servicios en español).

Life is a journey full of unexpected twists and turns that can leave us feeling overwhelmed, confused, stressed, anxious, angry and hurt. It happens. Sometimes when we are faced with an unexpected event or tragedy or we just feel like we "aren't ourselves "and we just aren't sure who to talk to or what to do, therapy can help. I would like to be there to help you through the twists and turns. It has been my experience as a therapist working with children, adults and families that creating a safe and comfortable environment allows us to get to know each other and together find the best way for you to approach and manage the concerns in your life. In sessions I use a variety approaches based on your preference and needs. I invite you to meet me and decide if you feel this a good fit for you or your child.
Meet CYMBRIA HESS, IMFT-S, Founding Therapist.

Hi there, I am an Independent Marriage & Family Therapist specializing in individual and couple therapy. I have over 30 years experience as a clinician. Time has flown by. Long ago it seems, I graduated from The University of Dayton specializing in developmental psychology. My background in developmental psychology allows me to work with clients from many stages of life. I studied developmental psychology because I thought the model of normal development versus thwarted development made the most sense. All of us face times in our lives where "curve balls" throw us off our planned trajectory. I see that as mostly "normal" or just life. Together we can figure out how to get back on track, or maybe even develop a better path for optimal life enjoyment.
My areas of expertise are: adolescent issues, couple therapy and individual therapy for depression and anxiety across the lifespan.
You should know if we work together that I am a therapist who loves to laugh at what life throws us all. I sincerely believe that therapy doesn't have to be a painful, horrid experience to tolerate. Rather, it is truly a chance to take on the challenges of life and figure out how to grow, learn and improve so that we don't get blasted by our own repetitive behavioral responses. I strive to provide practical and usable feedback with sensitivity, gentle humor and compassion each and every session. There is no "one size or technique fits all." The goal is to help you build on your strengths, identify life goals and create a plan to live your best life...even and especially when times are tough. The reason I love my career (and I truly do) is that helping people's lives go from a dark, and often painful time in their life to a better place with hope for the future is a true honor. When I get to participate in that shift that makes me downright glow.
