Pandora Healing offers counseling for adults, adolescents, children and families. Our counselors are trained to address various emotional concerns including anxiety, depression, family and peer relationship issues; as well children’s behavioral and emotional needs, including adjustment issues and childhood trauma. If you experience symptoms of sadness, intense anger, and/or constant stress and worry, you may benefit from exploring how certain patterns or experiences may be negatively impacting you, as well as affecting your relationships with others. Our counselors use a strengths based approach that recognizes the unique experiences of each individual and facilitates personal growth through self-awareness and self-compassion. Because our bodies are deeply affected by the state of our emotions we offer a mind/body approach that treats the entire person and invites them to become an active participant in their healing.
