    If you are struggling, you don't have to go it alone.
    Having several therapists of varied disciplines and experiences provides our clients with options that best meet their counseling needs.
    When people experience trauma or severe life stressors, it is not uncommon for their lives to unravel. We are passionate about bringing healing to people who have been through traumatic or stressful experiences. We help our clients, who include, children, adults, and families, to find a healthy view of themselves and strengthen their relationships so they can become peaceful, whole, and safe.
    At FSS, our caring and professional staff are dedicated to your well-being. We can help those struggling with depression, stress management, grief recovery, divorce recovery, eating disorders, anxiety and phobias, domestic abuse, sexual abuse, self-esteem, substance abuse, post-traumatic stress, behavioral problems, emotional trauma, parenting challenges and many other issues.
    We know that no single approach is the right one for every person, so we have been trained in a range of counseling techniques, including those listed below.

  • Equine Assisted Psychotherapy
    Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) is used to treat behavioral issues, attention deficit disorder, substance abuse, eating disorders, abuse issues, depression, anxiety, relationship problems and communication needs. More About Equine Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
    CBT is a counseling approach that addresses dysfunctional emotions, maladaptive behaviors and thought processes. CBT is "problem focused" and "action oriented".
  • Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT)
    TF-CBT is a unique form of cognitive-behavioral therapy that has been specially adapted for children who have experienced trauma.
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR)
    EMDR has proven very effective for treating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in adults as well as children.
  • Play Therapy
    Play Therapy uses play to communicate with and help people, especially children, to prevent or resolve challenges. This is thought to help them move towards better social integration, growth and development, emotional modulation, and trauma resolution.
  • Battering Intervention and Prevention Program (BIPP)
    BIPP specializes in domestic/family violence intervention and prevention of battering behaviors used to gain power/control within an intimate relationship, marriage, or family.
  • Women’s Anger and Violence Program (WAV)
    WAV specializes in interpersonal violence intervention and prevention of battering behaviors used to gain power/control within an intimate relationship, marriage, or family.
  • Transparenting
    Transparenting is for parents with children who are going through divorce or separation.
  • Supervised Visitation
    Supervised Visitation can help reintroduce a parent to a child after a long absence from the child’s life or help introduce a parent and a child when there has been no prior relationship between them. Supervised Visitation can also help when there are issues of mental illness, domestic violence, child abuse or neglect, or drug or alcohol abuse, or when there are parenting concerns. It may also be appropriate to give the parent a chance to show they are capable of appropriate parenting.
