  • I provide therapy services for the full age spectrum using a model of intervention grounded primarily in cognitive behavioral therapy.  I am committed to providing a non-judgmental, peaceful, and accepting therapeutic environment for clients who are experiencing situational stressors, medical issues, and/or mental health challenges.  Those with Depression, Anxiety, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Trauma, Bipolar Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder,  Adjustment Disorders (anger management, grief and loss, divorce/separation, work stress, job displacement, and life transitions), Learning Differences, Sensory Differences, Autism, ADHD, and Developmental Disabilities are welcome.  I partner with clients as they build inner resources that allow them to move toward their relationship, personal, health, school, and work goals.  
Austin Boon, M.S., Licensed Professional Counselor
  • I provide therapy for a wide breadth of problems including but not limited to depression, anxiety, panic, trauma, addiction, grief, anger, relationship issues, and general stress. I work with patients with diverse demographic backgrounds (e.g., age, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, etc.). I do my best to establish honest and compassionate working relationships with my clients. I use a various methods within treatment that are effective in research and practice. I have significant experience in working with individuals and couples who are experiencing relationship distress.
