Our Mission

Cornerstone was founded in 1994 to provide people with the healing, recovery and support that they need to live happy and productive lives.

We are commited to helping our clients gain self-worth, reduce shame, and achieve healthy intimacy and sexuality in their lives. We work with clients to heal the impacts of trauma and facilitate their personal development.

Our goal is for our clients to become the pilots of their own lives and achieve the self-acceptance and self-respect that they have always deserved.

Our Programs

In addition to our general mental health counseling, we offer a diverse collection of programs for specific issues.

Sex Addiction/Cybersex Recovery

Sexual addiction is a pattern of obsessive sexual thoughts and compulsive sexual behavior that continues even after the person has experienced numerous consequences including significant suffering to themselves and others. Intervention and support are required.

Spouses and Partners of Sexual Addicts Counseling

Being married to or partners with a sex addict can be one of the most painful and traumatizing experiences we can have in a relationship. At Cornerstone, we help you navigate through this dark and confusing time.

Couples Therapy

Couples therapy is the process by which a trained relationship therapist facilitates effective communication, conflict resolution, empathy and compassion between a married or non-married couple through education, gentle confrontation and coaching until the couple can achieve effectiveness in these areas on their own.

Adult Anger Management

Anger is a surge of energy that prepares us for a perceived threat. Unfortunately, many people learn to associate anger with abuse, rage, and destructive behavior.

Our program teaches adult men and women how to understand, use and manage their anger in constructive, healthy ways.

Short Term Sexual Responsibility

Many factors can cause young men today to struggle with their sexual feelings and decisions. Adolescents need to be aware of the significant personal, interpersonal and legal ramifications of decisions to engage in sexual activities. Teenagers and their parents need information, guidance and support during this challenging period in their lives.

Adolescent Anger Management

The program is designed for young men who have expressed their anger in explosive and aggressive ways.

This program is aimed at helping these teens learn more effective and constructive methods of expressing anger and other emotions.

Adolescent Sexuality Services

Anger is a surge of energy that prepares us for a perceived threat. Unfortunately, many people learn to associate anger with abuse, rage, and destructive behavior.

Our program teaches adult men and women how to understand, use and manage their anger in constructive, healthy ways.

Substance Use Disorder Comprehensive Assessment

At Cornerstone we create a safe atmosphere and a compassionate, non-judgemental and welcoming experience of a thorough assessment process. If substance use treatment is found to be appropriate, where and what kind of treatment is the client’s decision. This assessment is available for both telehealth and in person appointments.
