If you’re on our website, you probably have some questions about treatment modalities that seem to resonate with you. Let’s talk about best treatment matches for your needs. We will use what is most appropriate for your personal style and desired results, and this can include Cognitive Behavioral Therapeutic Approaches, Mindfulness, Eye Movement Desensitization Therapy, Strategic Therapy, Techniques from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Psychodynamic, Humanistic Psychotherapy and Somatic Approaches. Sessions are generally in 50, 80 or 100 minute increments.
We provide several group formats. The priority for our groups is to create a safe environment where learning and relationship repair with the self and others is possible. The group then becomes “the client,” and we work towards the health of the group as a whole. Individuals often experience a different kind of healing, awareness and comfort that builds upon the growth made in individual psychotherapy. The “group” is a living, breathing thing, and this means you will be challenged to the level you feel ready for, and we will build new dimensions to the group as we go along. SEE AVAILABLE GROUPS

Brief Treatment Intensives
Treatment intensives are brief, generally four-hour to two day, sessions with either one or multiple psychotherapists. These sessions are designed specifically for the individual, couple or family to identify and establish a foundation for alleviation of the situations and interactions causing disruption and discord. They are also used to promote and reinforce positive interaction and skills already in place, and to bolster well-being and harmony.
Linguistically & Culturally Responsive Services
The center maintains a strong culturally-responsive capability to deliver most services. Together with concentration on how acculturation and cultural values influence behaviors and attitudes, sense of self-worth and coping, we conduct therapy within the context of the client’s value and belief system, and with appreciation of extended family systems.
The Center offers “in house” Integrative Functional Medicine for clients interested in really optimizing their health across multiple domains. Treatment for a wide range of needs is available.

We can even provide a mix of face to face and telephone as might be appropriate or desirable.
Among the most challenging struggles that can be faced, addiction is emotionally draining and insidious. Let’s understand and use every tool available to help you and your loved ones develop and maintain hope throughout the process. We combine hopefulness with practical skills and behaviors. Treating multiple addictions for over 26 years – in settings ranging from outpatient psychotherapy to locked facilities – we know that a “one size fits all” treatment plan ignores the complex nature of addiction. Specializing in substance addiction as well as sex addiction, we embark on a journey with each individual to assess and understand the nature of their “acting-out behavior” to determine the unmet developmental needs that they are trying to meet.

Recovery can benefit greatly by having a daytime, 24 hour or week-long sober living support friend to share their day.

For individuals who feel unsteady in applying new healthy choices, this assistance can help to build positive routines and support recovery plans.
