Are you a First-Time Patient?

Then read this now...


Many of our patients had never been in therapy and were initially very hesitant.

However, after just one visit they often report feeling at ease and very comfortable.

After completing therapy they often report life-altering changes, progress and great satisfaction.


We provide expert marriage and adolescent counseling.

Learn to have family conversations which create intimacy,
eliminate arguing and promote problem-solving. Dissolve hard feelings,

Eliminate icy walls and replace them with lasting warmth and renewed trust.

We offer day, Saturday and evening appointments, next day appointments and have a no waiting policy.

So, peace of mind to us is not just a slogan-but a promise!

Unlike other doctors, we go the EXTRA MILE by
assuming full responsibility for receiving insurance authorization and understanding the terms of your policy.

In fact, to save you from any headaches or unpleasant surprises,

We are so accurate and careful in communicating
with your insurance company, that as long as your deductible is paid and you make the correct co-payment at each visit..

You'll NEVER have to worry about receiving an unexpected bill from us

...regardless of what your insurance company may do later!

That's real peace of mind. You won't get this exclusive "Peace of Mind Promise" anywhere else!


-Day, evening and Saturday appointments

-Insurance billed directly

-No waiting policy

Today you are one step closer
to a new YOU where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.

As results-focused therapists, our goal is to help you...

...Eliminate family conflicts, depression, rage, anxiety and ADHD...and help you uncover your true potential to lead a life that is worth celebrating, not dreading.

While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can w
ork together to better understand and erase the futility and worry they cause.

By applying evidence-based therapy techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling, anxiety-free and meaningful life.


If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready
to move in a new direction, we look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
