Welcome to InnerPeace.

We currently have licensed therapists on staff and are accepting new clients.

We offer in-person outpatient psychotherapy services and telehealth via the internet and in cases where no internet is available, phone calls work.

“Peace is a daily, a weekly, a monthly process, gradually changing opinions, slowly eroding old barriers, quietly building new structures.”

—John F. Kennedy
