About

The decision to seek out a therapist is an important first step towards positively addressing conflicts, managing distress, and learning to cope with negative or overwhelming feelings. Our team of therapists bring years of therapy experience. We work with children, adolescents, adults, and families who are Deaf or come from Deaf families (includes hearing family/friends who sign). We provide a supportive, nurturing environment. We use a multimodal approach incorporating mind-body therapies with evidence-based treatments. We also offer forensic-clinical services and applied behavior analysis treatment.
The process of mental health therapy, treatment and healing does not begin or end in the office. The tools you learn will become ongoing resources for positive emotional growth and you will gain insight into how to utilize your strengths to overcome challenges encountered in managing mental health issues.
Our therapists are fluent in American Sign Language and specialize in working with Deaf and hard of hearing people. We also work with KODA/CODAs and their families who may or may not be fluent in ASL. Our secure telehealth services are provided through HIPAA-approved platforms.
