Hello and Welcome!

Thank you for visiting Hummingbird Counseling Services for Women. My vision is for Hummingbird to be a conduit for women’s mental, emotional, and spiritual healing. My mission is to create a safe haven that inspires healing, growth and the will to live forward. We strongly believe that unconditional positive regard, relationship building, empathy and humor are the most powerful tools in helping clients experience lasting change. At Hummingbird, we will help you build compassion for yourself versus focusing on past failures. Our professional helpers are dedicated to journeying alongside you as you do your healing work with hope, courage and the will to “Live Forward.”
