Welcome to Stage Coach Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy is provided in a strength-based and solution focused therapeutic model. Clients have the answers to their own problems, but require guidance rediscovering their strengths and solutions. The therapy relationship is a partnership and ongoing conversation to help each client find their own truth.
We are located in the historic Stage Coach Inn, built in the early 1800s—a rest stop for weary travelers on their journey. This was a place in which travelers would come to replenish and restore themselves so they could continue their journey. In the spirit of this history, Stage Coach Psychotherapy offers mental health services for children, adolescents, adults, families and couples in Western Monroe County and surrounding areas.
