The Wellness Room was established based on the philosophy that most often our responses to life’s difficulties and hardships are normal and expected. Experiencing sadness, anxiety, depression, loneliness, and grief is difficult. These struggles can result in losing one’s sense of belonging and purpose. The Wellness Room strives to provide an environment to explore and understand these emotions and help children, adolescents, adults, couples and families restore not only who they were but who they want to become. Our nurturing staff and therapists are highly skilled professionals and individuals who have lived life’s challenges and trials themselves. Through training and these experiences, our staff have gained wisdom and insight providing us with a strong foundation to listen, understand, empathize, support and help our clients to navigate through challenging situations. Some of the areas for which we provide support are:
Anxiety Depression Illness Life upheavals and transitions Loss and bereavement Young widows and widowers support
Divorce recovery support Birth, postpartum, and parenting Couples therapy Infertility
Adoption decision Egg/Sperm donor decision Adolescent transition Self injury Childhood anxiety
We offer individual, couples, and family therapy as well as group therapy.
WE ARE ALSO OFFERING OFF-SITE SESSIONS FOR CLIENTS THAT CANNOT COME INTO OUR OFFICES

The Wellness Room strongly believes in the benefit and growth that comes from group support. It is our mission to help all of our clients navigate their way back to the road to wellness. Our therapist/artist Emily Newmann has continued her weekly group on Mondays with “Writing Into/Through/Around and About Your Grief”. Please see our listings for Groups.
