Our experienced clinicians have many decades of combined experience, and we bring that wealth of experience and skill to each of the individual adults, couples, and teens who have come to rely on our care as part of their healing journey.

Regardless of the presenting concerns, our services emphasize helping our clients to:

  • Increase their natural "resilience" or "stress hardiness" by strengthening self-regulation abilities
  • Rewrite their life story by altering patterns of perception and teaching them to take healthy perspectives on their life circumstances
  • Develop a sensible, manageable, and efficient treatment plan with achievable treatment goals.

We look forward to working with you as you take your next step to better health.
