Everyone Deserves a Fierce Ally

When life gets tough

We believe that everyone deserves the resources and support of a skilled and fierce ally when life gets tough. If you are looking for that ally, we invite you to explore our website and connect with us. 

Fortier Therapy Group provides services that help you live the life you have imagined. We view mental health in a holistic sense; mind, body, relationships, spirituality, and social factors are all interconnected. In addition to mental health therapy and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), we provide well-being services that include life coaching and Reiki energy healing, as well as mediation. Whether you know your specific needs, or you are looking for help but don’t know where to start, we work closely with you to ensure you get the safe, effective treatment you need. Authenticity, curiosity, awareness, playfulness, humor, and responsiveness are the characteristics that guide our practice. Our telehealth services allow us to work with you from the comfort of your home or office. If you are seeking compassionate and caring mental health services, we invite you to contact us.

Life coaching is separate from any sort of mental health services. It is not intended to treat any mental health conditions. Life coaching is for self-improvement, skill development, inspiration, goal setting, etc.

Is life coaching the same as mental health therapy?

Our first session is what is known as an intake session. It’s different from a traditional session because this will be a time for us to gather as much information about your case history and current/pressing issues or topics. Together we’ll talk about why you have decided to hire a coach or seek therapy and what your goals are for our time together. It’s also an opportunity for you to get to know us and ask any questions you may have. At the end of the session, we can decide together if it feels right to move forward in scheduling another session and beginning your journey. This first session is a fully paid session.

What can I expect from our first session?

Most of our clients begin working with us because they have a sense of wanting something better for themselves, and they don’t quite know what it will take to get there. In some cases, clients seek healing from complex trauma, destructive thoughts, and low self-esteem. 

Fortier Group offers a uniquely caring, personalized approach to giving our clients the safe, effective treatment they need, whether that involves life coaching, mental health therapy, energy healing (Reiki), or mediation services.
