You Ask – We Answer 

WHAT IS YOUR STYLE?

Our therapeutic approach is based on cognitive behavioral therapy and person-centered therapy. Sessions are focused on helping individuals, couples, or families feel supported, accepted, and empowered to improve their lives and overcome life’s challenges. We are committed to the well-being of all of our patients. We promise to go above and beyond to cater to your needs.

DO YOU INCORPORATE OTHER TECHNIQUES THAN TRADITIONAL TALK THERAPY?

Absolutely! As no two people are alike, other treatment modalities are used, such as cognitive behavioral techniques, play and art therapy, mindfulness stress-reduction, and bibliotherapy.

DO YOU TEND TO SEE PEOPLE FOR LONG-TERM THERAPY OR FOR SHORT-TERM THERAPY?
