About Us

Serving Montgomery County

We are a group practice providing counseling services to Montgomery County. We provide healing through individual, couples, and family sessions.

Who We Are

Watershed is a group counseling center serving families and individuals in the Montgomery County area. We have experienced, compassionate counselors to help you and your family discover new ways to live happier, healthier, more productive lives. We pride ourselves on being life-long learners, always working to expand our knowledge and grow in our expertise. At Watershed, we have a comfortable, welcoming environment where clients feel safe to explore, learn, and grow. 

What We Do

Our compassionate counselors help you navigate those times when life doesn’t turn out quite how you expected. We walk with you on your journey through sadness, stress, anxiety, grief, recovery, depression and all the other tough emotions that might come your way.  So whatever your situation, our goal is to help you find clarity, purpose, and strength. Through the therapy process, we will help you cultivate an unshakeable resiliency that you carry into every challenge you face.

As human beings, we all struggle. Healing is when these struggles no longer control you.  If you’re feeling stuck and overwhelmed we welcome you in our center so our honest and trustworthy counselors can provide you with tools and guidance on how to move past the obstacles you are facing and into a better place.  Whether you have your own challenges, are concerned about your teen or need help in marriage, we can work with you to move toward greater peace and a more balanced life.

Why We Do What We Do

We are so lucky to get to journey with such amazing people through gritty times in their lives and see them get to the other side where they overcome and thrive. What could be more amazing than to sit with a couple through relationship hardship and see their despair transform into passion, to watch a woman overcome a traumatic past and find peace and joy on the other end of it, to sit across from a man who is struggling to find his place at work and in the home then to hear him find success and a healthy balance with both. And how satisfying it is to help a teen or young adult who is struggling with difficult relationships or social pressures in school develop the skills and tools that lead to healthy relationships and boundaries. Life can be rough, we’ve seen it, we have experienced it.  But on the other side of the hardship is a pretty extraordinary life.
