Individual psychotherapy provides a unique opportunity to form a therapeutic relationship that is tailored to your needs and goals. We provide a wide range of evidence-based therapies to treat a variety of concerns in a welcoming, caring and supportive setting.
Families can benefit from therapy, especially when experiencing a stressful event that may strain family relationships such as financial hardship, divorce, or the death of a loved one. Having the whole family present can be effective in treating mental health concerns that impact the family as a whole, such as depression, substance abuse, chronic illness, and food issues, or concerns like communication problems, interpersonal conflict, and behavioral problems in children and adolescents.
Psychological testing is designed to help every individual uniquely by measuring and observing their behavior and response to certain stimuli to arrive at a diagnosis and guide treatment.
If a child is having behavioral or learning difficulties in school, it is important to determine the causes. Disorders such as dyslexia, Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and/or impulse control issues can severely inhibit a child’s ability to succeed in school. Psychological tests and assessments allow a psychologist to understand the nature of the problem and develop a treatment plan to address it.
In some cases, medication is prescribed to treat various disorders. We offer gene testing to minimize the guesswork in choosing the right medication for you. You may discuss your results with our nurse practitioner or your healthcare provider to determine the appropriate medication for your individual needs.
Group therapy differs from individual therapy by holding therapeutic sessions in a group setting run by a therapist instead of a private one-on-one session. In these group sessions, patients share their thoughts and experiences with the members of the group, allowing them to support one another.
Neurofeedback, or EEG Biofeedback, is direct training of brain function, by which the brain learns to function more efficiently. We observe the brain in action from moment to moment. This is a gradual learning process. Self-regulation is a necessary part of good brain function. Self-regulation training allows the system (the central nervous system) to function better. Learn More

The journey to nourishing your body and creating a healthier you inside and out starts with a plan. Individualized meal planning and learning about your relationship with food is an integral part of the process. Meeting with a registered dietitian to help you put together a healthy meal plan is a key part of the process. Balance, variety and moderation are all nutritional themes that are implemented throughout your experience.
We work closely with the Alma Center. The Alma Center uses an evidence-based, integrated approach that addresses the interaction between psychology, body, environment, and soul. Their approach is rooted in creating a positive, safe and respectful environment to instill the hope and compassion allowing each person to find their unique path to wellness.
Kids with learning disabilities often find themselves having difficulty communicating and interacting with others, which can lead to feelings of isolation, and creates a negative feedback loop that impedes both educational and social development. We determine the underlying causes and create simple, friendly and caring environments where social interaction is enjoyed, and positively reinforced to become socially competent.
Parent Training (PT) is a program that is designed to help parents develop the skills necessary to manage their child’s behavior and development. The techniques learned in PT allow parents to correctly identify, define and respond to problematic childhood behaviors.
Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) Therapy is a safe, effective, non-invasive, and non-drug option for treating treatment-resistant depression. The procedure uses gentle magnetic frequencies to stimulate regions of the brain associated with depression and mood. After TMS, the brain releases feel-good chemicals (i.e. serotonin) and strengthens pathways in the brain associated with positive mood. Learn More
