Welcome!

We are Blue Anchor Psychology, a group practice that provides mental health services to individuals and couples, focused on helping you move towards the life you desire. We specialize in promoting sexual wellness, strengthening relationships, and addressing sexual compulsivity, anxiety, depression, and trauma.  

Our approach to treatment is collaborative, supportive, and strength-based, to promote the autonomy, skills, and insight to be at your best. We strive to create a warm, accepting environment, where you can engage in genuine self-reflection and exploration to create the richness and meaning you desire in your life. 


If you’ve found yourself looking for a therapist, it likely means you’ve been experiencing pain or distress for quite some time now. Perhaps you have tried different strategies, bought self-help books, or sought advice from friends or family, all in the effort to move away from the things that have caused you pain. This journey through life’s challenges can be a stressful and overwhelming process. We are here to go on that journey with you. Contact us today to get started. 

 

Pain is an unfortunate reality of the human experience.

Sometimes, in our attempts to control pain, whether it's emotional, physical, psychological, or otherwise, we are also pulled away from things in our lives that are important to us, resulting in a less fulfilling life. Your decision to pursue therapy is an important step in moving towards the things in your life that matter most to you. Our therapeutic approaches are focused on increasing your insight and tools to learn to step out of the struggle against your pain and to identify the strengths you already possess to live a more rewarding and meaningful life.
