Welcome!

Breakers Counseling is a team of experienced therapists dedicated to supporting clients of all ages in wellness & recovery. It is our mission to provide a safe & non-judgmental environment for all. Whatever brings you to therapy, we understand that not one person is the same & what has worked for one person may not always work for another. It is our goal to facilitate & support transformation, growth & positive change. We seek not only to understand the how & why, but also to assist in discovery & motivation by promoting self-efficacy, esteem & empowerment for change.

 

Our diverse & talented therapists provide for a wide scope of practice covering all areas of mental, behavioral health, and substance abuse. Our team also understands the impacts of the psychosocial, environmental, and situational areas of functioning for a holistic approach to treatment.
