Individual therapy

Through the use of self-reflection and self-examination, we help you identify patterns that lead to difficulties, so you can reduce your symptoms and have a happier, healthier life.

Couples & family therapy

We work with people in intimate relationships—from romantic partners and married couples to full families—to nurture healthy communication, change, and development.

Medication management

We prescribe psychotropic medications to treat a variety of mental health problems that impair healthy functioning. Medications may help you during a particularly difficult time, or may be needed on a long-term basis for persistent symptoms.

Psychological testing

We examine ADHD and other learning issues through individualized assessment, and partner with schools, parents, psychiatrists, and physicians to apply our findings and recommendations.
