For prospective clients.


Welcome to Indigo Mental Health.

We appreciate the opportunity to be of service to you on your journey toward emotional health and the goals that bring you to us.  The counseling session is often described as creating a container, or a safe space, in which one can explore their emotional needs with the assistance of a knowledgeable guide.  It is our mission to provide that container, and to guide our clients toward healing and growth.
