"Each of us is born with the potential to be the best version of ourselves. For most of us, along the way, life can get in the way. Whether it's substances, relationships, anxiety or negative thoughts; we lose our way. We find ourselves muddling through what is meant to be a satisfying and uplifting journey. If you want to discover how to get back to that inborn potential; therapy may be the answer. I won't have all the answers, no one knows you better than you! I will help you uncover the answers that are true for you."
Since 1972 CEPD Psychological Services have been providing short term treatment with long term results for children and adults utilizing a multimodal holistic treatment approach. Each client is evaluated and carefully matched to one of our ten male or female therapists that can best meet the unique needs and specific therapeutic treatment issues of each individual. All therapists are dedicated to creatively using safe, cutting edge research supported treatments to address a wide range of psychological issues. Treatment modalities include: cognitive behavioral and insight oriented therapy, individual, marriage and family counseling, biofeedback, hypnotherapy and stress, pain and anger management.
Life is filled with times of transition and times of change. This couldn't be more true than for the life of a child or an adolescent. School stressors, personal identity, family separations, forming healthy friendships, and an overwhelming desire for acceptance are all things that a child or adolescent may deal with regularly. In these moments it is crucial for a young person to feel understood and listened to in order to be helped. Coming alongside a young person in whatever place they may be residing in is where my heart resides. Many times this age group can be overlooked or misunderstood, but their needs still remain.
