"Our life's work is helping clients achieve a better sense of self and happiness..more recently we've recognized that without good mental health providers this balance in life can be more difficult and stressful. However, through therapy our associates have our clients transform into the people they want to be. We see each client as an individual with many parts to their identity. Utilizing a holistic and systemic approach we help clients reintegrate the parts of themselves to function better as individuals and within their systems. Our focus tends toward a family systems based approach using behavior methods. "

"The purpose of therapy is to help you get beyond a state of elementary survival -to a place where there's energy to be creative, the drive to motivate yourself, some space to take a walk, and perhaps time to attend a class. You may ask yourself constantly: "Isn't there more to life than struggle? Instead of walking in circles wouldn't it be nice to expand your horizons and gain a new perspective? Therapy is the place to do such things. It's a safe environment to become more awake and to develop more fully your genuine Self."

Regardless of how intelligent or insightful a person is, everyone may at times become overwhelmed or stuck. We may not know what to do, or knowing what to do we are puzzled by why we don't act in our own best interests.
