At the Center for Collaborative Counseling and Psychiatry, our experts provide you, your child and family with comprehensive resources, support, and relief. We take a holistic approach to treatment and treat you as a whole and unique person and not just a list of symptoms. We provide evaluations, assessments, medication management, therapy and the skilled support and guidance of highly qualified professionals who will work collaboratively with you to create a treatment plan that best addresses your specific needs and therapy goals. And, our staff works together as a cohesive team to provide you with the best possible care every step of the way.
At the heart of our practice is compassion. We tend to be active in therapy and provide structure in sessions to help people learn new and more effective ways of responding to troubling emotions and thoughts that can serve as barriers to fuller, richer lives.
As a client at our center, you will work along side with a team of dedicated specialists, including a psychiatrist, an advanced pediatric nurse practitioner and other clinicians. At the Center for Collaborative Counseling and Psychiatry, we strive to create an individualized approach that is comprehensive, and effective.
