Services and Links

We offer specialized services for clients of all ages: Adults, Teens, and Children

Depression and Anxiety: Many of our clients come to us suffering from depression, manic-depression (Bipolar Disorder), or severe anxiety that has been unrecognized or untreated for years.  Our therapists know how to get to the root of the problem and can work closely with family members and other health care providers to help get you or your loved one out of misery and pain and back on their feet.  Constant worry, fear or compulsions can also seriously disrupt one’s life.  Our therapists can train you to deal with panic.  Once treatment is experienced, there is often an immediate decrease in some of the most uncomfortable symptoms.  Here are some links that may be helpful to you:
