Our affiliation includes experienced, independently practicing and seasoned mental health professionals who come from diverse training and backgrounds in mental health clinics, educational settings, and inpatient and substance abuse treatment programs. With an interdisciplinary approach based on collective experience, clinicians are able to offer a wide array of mental health services to clients. This allows clients to get many of their mental health needs met efficiently, whether those needs be for individual adult, child, or adolescent therapies or for couples or family therapy, medication management or group treatment. In addition, we coordinate client care, as appropriate and with written permission of the client, to provide the best service possible.

In addition to the array of services offered, we are providers for most insurance and managed care companies and support many local businesses through their EAPs (Employee Assistance Programs). Referral sources are many and diverse, from local doctor's offices, businesses, school counselors, and individuals. In an age when third party payment is often essential to accessing services, many clinicians take most managed care and standard health insurances. You may call your insurance customer service line to confirm that your provider accepts your particular insurance.
