I am excited to let you know who we are, and hope we have the opportunity to assist you.

It is our goal to help our children and adolescents improve their lives for a brighter future.

Our Therapists all hold a Master’s Degree as Licensed Professional Counselors or in Social Work; collectively they specialize in Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and are Trauma-Focused Educated.
