The Practice

We set ourselves apart by focusing on the entire family as we help you resolve complex issues in the areas of relationships, divorce, addiction, trauma, assessments, family mediation and parenting coordination.
We use a variety of techniques with a foundation of respect and kindness regardless of the issue. Every technique is evidence-based and proven to be effective. We explain our processes in detail to insure a high comfort level and then we put our clients in the driver’s seat, guiding them with suggestions and recommendations. 
Anxiety, depression and bipolar disorders are complex mental illnesses. Coupled with addiction, divorce, separation, financial issues and family losses, and life can quickly become unmanageable. Most of us were not born with nor were we taught the coping skills required to effectively navigate such turmoil. Some psychotherapists shy away from complex issues such as these. Our approach is different. We tackle these issues head-on beginning with our integrative approach to diagnosis based on an evidence-based biopsychosocial intake. Our mission is to demystify mental health, raising its importance to that of physical health.

Our success has been attributed to:

  • Providing evidence-based treatments
  • Being highly trained and certified in all techniques utilized
  • Providing individual attention and individually tailored services
  • Treating all clients with respect and kindness
  • Actively listening to concerns and offering suggestions to help formulate solutions
  • Upholding the highest of ethical standards in the industry
  • Cost-effective solutions

Looking For Ways to Strengthen Your Relationships?

Healthy relationships are a source of joy and comfort. They provide a sense of safety and connection with partners, family and friends. They can even help people live longer, healthier lives. But all too often, relationships can be jeopardized by a variety of stressful factors including finances, power imbalances, other well-intentioned family members and hidden issues from one another’s past.

Worried that Your Addiction Is Taking Control of Your Life?

Addictions can take many forms. Abusing substances such as alcohol, street drugs, and prescription medications can cause lasting damage to lives, relationships, and health. These substances affect the brain’s pathways of pleasure and reward, and create a pattern of craving and compulsion that drives addictions.

Having Trouble Moving Past Traumatic Events?

Trauma is an emotional response to an extraordinary and shocking experience that falls outside the realm of normal life. This kind of event, or even a series of events, can affect the ability to cope, leading to feelings of fear, horror, or helplessness. Because trauma affects a person’s sense of safety, it can lead to long-term emotional distress, constant feelings of danger, or a sense of numbness and disconnect from daily life.

Searching For Fresh Perspectives To Resolve Old Conflicts?

Resolving family issues can be difficult. Although mediation is most commonly associated with divorce, a range of other stressful family situations can strain relationships, such as child custody, eldercare, alimony, trusts, and division of assets. Family mediation can be a constructive way to resolve these and other family-related issues.

Are ongoing conflicts getting in the way of effective co-parenting?

Highly-charged emotions and unresolved conflicts can persist for years after a divorce or break-up. These emotions and conflicts often become the focus, and when children are involved their needs can become diminished. Parenting coordination is a way to maintain the focus on the children by protecting and sustaining safe, healthy and meaningful parent-child relationships. Parenting coordination provides a child-focused process for developing and implementing parenting plans for parents who are experiencing a high level of conflict. Parents are assisted with a timely and efficient resolution of disputes that focus solely on the needs of the children. Parenting coordinators monitor parenting plan compliance and quickly resolve conflicts that involve the children.
