Our Mission


elax. Take a deep, cleansing breath. It helps to breathe deeply when life gets overwhelming. Anxiety, depression, addictions, trauma, loss, physical and emotional pain take deep a toll on you; your health and wellbeing and sometimes it feels like you just can’t cope. If you’re having issues like these and want help, we’re here. Our pledge is to hold you and your life issues with deep respect and caring.

We Believe … People are okay… You have worth, value and dignity… You have the capacity to think… You can decide your own destiny and decisions can be changed… You can achieve your goals, wishes and desires in life… To “grow”, you need an environment that provides you with genuineness (openness and self-disclosure), acceptance (being seen with unconditional positive regard), and empathy (being listened to and understood).

We’ll work hard in partnership with you to help you achieve personal empowerment toward success and wellbeing. Wilmington Psychotherapy . . . helping you achieve balance in mind, body and spirit.
