Wherever you are in your journey, therapy can help you. Your  therapist will meet you at your point of need to walk with you as you  move closer to your desired goals. Whether you want to change unhealthy  behavior or you are going through relational issues or emotional  distress, we can help you.

In therapy, you will be given a safe space for you to explore what’s  going on in your life, in your relationships, and in your mind. It will  be a time to discover more about yourself and creating self-awareness.  We will work towards creating a process of empowerment and tapping into  your inner strength.

Individual therapy is for children, adolescence, and adults  struggling with symptoms and behaviors related to trauma, depression,  anxiety, relational issues, significant life changes and/or other mood  or behavior disorders.

Family relationships are very complex and each member plays a specific role within the family.  Family has a profound impact on their emotions, roles, and actions.  A change in one individual member can impact the family dynamic in different ways and often times leads to an unbalanced family system.  Hidden Strengths’ role is to provide families seeking treatment an opportunity to develop a degree of interdependence that can  lead to a harmonious system.  Family therapy is for families seeking to improve relationships through exploring and restructuring unproductive family systems. The work involves strengthening communication, resolving conflict, and establishing healthy boundaries

group therapy

Living Skills

The  transitioning of adolescence to adulthood can be challenging and may be  confusing for some. Transition aged youth (TAY), ages 16-24, are often  asked to make informed major life decisions without appropriate support,  information, or skills to succeed. Developmentally, these decisions can  be difficult to make as areas of the brain utilized for impulse  control, complex decision making, and planning skills are not completely  developed. Without the proper guidance or assistance, TAY may  experience difficulty maintaining academic or professional performance,  interpersonal relationships, and/or mental and emotional health.

At  Hidden strength, we provide services to adolescents who are struggling  with symptoms and behaviors related to the transition between  adolescence and adulthood.

  • Education and career planning
  • Acculturation or fitting in with their current environment
  • Mood/Emotional problems (i.e. depression, anxiety, anger, isolation)
  • Creating or maintaining meaningful relationships


  • Individual and group therapy
  • Family therapy and family support group
  • Psychoeducation

Case management (i.e. tutoring, educational planning, social skills development, and community networks)
