The Latin word concentricus means con (together) and centrum (center).  Concentric circles all share the same center, such as tree rings and rippling water droplets.  As individuals we stand in the innermost circle of a concentric circle, yet, we do not exist completely in isolation.  Throughout our life, we co-exist in other relationships, systems and domains represented by the outer concentric circles. Some of these influential and significant areas include our partners, family of choice, friends and peers, family-of-origin, school, work, and our community at large.

Looking at ourselves and our relationships through the lens of concentric circles, we also recognize at the center or core, people of all ages share similar experiences, feelings, and thoughts. At some point, we can all relate to feeling down, anxious, stuck, frustrated, or lonely. We all want to be connected, understood, and loved.

We know there are universal desires that are felt and desired by all people, and yet, we also recognize that people have certain experiences that make you unique and set you apart from others.  At Concentric, we strive to understand you, your personal experiences, and the barriers that are getting in the way of feeling healthier.  We are here to help you and your loved ones feel better.  

What about the universal desires of wanting to feel more centered, self-accepting, and at ease with ourselves and others?

Are you or your family facing obstacles to feeling healthier and connected?  

If so, our passionate counselors and therapists offer an array of services and approaches to help you and the people that are significant in your life to uncover and work through those barriers.  We will help you to identify helpful ways of coping, managing, and existing so you can become more centered, feel better, grow and evolve, and experience healthier, more fulfilling relationships.
