Therapy at New Light

A trusting relationship is the foundation of the therapy we provide our clients every day. 

At New Light, therapists meet with clients in a comfortable, confidential setting. Clients safely explore what's on their minds, sharing their story at their pace. Our therapists help people heal past hurts, gain clarity, improve communication skills, better handle stress, develop problem-solving techniques, and overcome change and loss. We help people conceptualize, create, and sustain the lives they want to live. 

Our non-judgmental stance respects our clients' values, beliefs, and right to self-determination. We help people gain insight and maintain their goals. New Light gives people the support and tools they need to thrive.


Our Services

Individual Therapy

Clients work one-on-one with their therapist in a safe, caring, and confidential environment to explore their feelings, beliefs, and behaviors. Therapists guide and structure sessions to deepen understanding, identify obstacles to goals, and solve problems.

Child and Adolescent Therapy

As children and adolescents grow, they develop the social skills and emotional intelligence necessary to lead healthy, happy lives. When they experience emotions or engage in behaviors that interfere with their ability to thrive, they may benefit from the supportive outlet that therapy provides.

Couples Therapy

Differences in communication styles can lead to misunder-standing and eroded empathy and intimacy. Therapy can often help couples re-establish intimacy, improve communication, and foster mutual respect and closeness.

Family Therapy

We work closely with families of all backgrounds and configurations to support and foster empathy and communication. Family therapy views change in terms of the systems of interaction among family members and emphasizes relationships as an important factor in psychological well-being.

Group Therapy

We offer support groups for those who want to dialogue with others in a group setting. The goal of groups is to create a safe, open and trusting community where individuals share experiences, receive support and collaborate around ideas. The interpersonal relationships developed will allow participants greater insight into their identities, the opportunity to  belong to a group that understands their experiences firsthand and the option to gain skills to better handle stress, develop problem-solving techniques and cope with change and loss.

Clinical Supervision

We provide clinical supervision for emerging professionals on the road to professional licensure. We provide a constructive supervisory experience and support you in your challenging and meaningful work. Our supervision is tailored to your goals for growth.
