Welcome to Horizons Behavioral Health Solutions.

If you are looking for a therapist probably you are feeling stuck or helpless, maybe you are stressed and angry, or maybe your life is out of control or lost balance, or things are not just working for you in life. If you are struggling with strong emotions and looking for relief from such distress you have come to the right place. 

Now and then we all need someone to talk to figure things out. At times friends and family will do. At other times a sympathetic ear may not be enough.  You may need to try psychotherapy, or “talk therapy” with a mental health professional. Talk therapy will help you gain insight into the complex interaction between your inner workings and external reality that is causing you stress. Such insight and awareness can help to resolve your problems effectively and live life more meaningfully.  While some amount of pain, grief, and suffering are inevitable in life, being miserable is optional.  You can either remain a part of the problem or choose to become a part of the solution, through the process of psychotherapy.


Though you have been contemplating seeking therapy, you may be finding it difficult to take the first step, as the decision to enter psychotherapy is not an easy one. It takes courage and commitment. Choosing a psychologist that is right for you can be daunting. You may be looking for a psychologist who has sound professional training and experience, and the ability to connect with you. You may want someone who can respect and understand your innermost thoughts and feelings and interpret and clarify them for you and give guidance. You may be searching for someone who can help you to make your life manageable and meaningful.
