Welcome to Compassion Counseling. We were created to provide support, encouragement and compassion to children, adolescents, adults and families.


Couple's Therapy

We personalize therapy according to individual needs because everyone has difficult times in their life where counseling services can be beneficial.


Phone Consultation

We provide a no-pressure phone call where we will assess your current needs and concerns, and decide if we can work together to address them.


Play Therapy

Play Therapy, a form of counseling, can be beneficial to children ages 3-12 who may be dealing with problems by allowing them to express their feelings through play.
