As mental health professionals, our goals are to assist you in treatment to discover your true self and lead to a life worth living. While no one can change difficult situations or experiences of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve the challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapeutic approaches and techniques, we will help you change long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. If you are looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you are just ready to move in a new direction in your life, we look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.

Dialectical Behavioral Therapy
The central dialectic within DBT is to balance acceptance of the person exactly as s/he is in this moment with intense efforts to change the person’s life to increase adaptive functioning and decrease maladaptive behavior. The overarching goal of treatment with DBT is to help individuals develop, as Dr. Linehan would say, “a life worth living.”
Relationship counseling attempts to recognize, manage, and reconcile troublesome differences and repeating patterns of stress upon a relationship. Short term counseling may be between 1 to 3 sessions whereas long term couples therapy may be between 12 and 24 sessions.
Psychiatrists are qualified to assess both the mental and physical aspects of psychological problems. In addition to therapy and counseling options, we also have an in-house doctor to prescribe medication. We find that psychiatry works best when accompanied by routine care and behavioral health treatments.
