If you have another care provider and are therefore able to wait to transfer your care to us, then you may call us now and we will schedule you for our next available appointment (currently scheduling five to eight months out). *Please note: Our new patient department phone agents may take up-to a week to return your call.

*If you are needing quicker assistance than we can currently provide, here are a few resources:

Meet Our Providers


We believe that social, emotional and behavioral disorders are frequently the result of an imbalance in brain chemistry. Our clinicians complete psychiatric evaluations to determine the most effective medication regimen for each individual; employing empirically based treatment models, including genetic testing. Once a medication treatment plan is established, follow-up visits are spent discussing whether therapeutic levels are reached.


We believe that successful experiences in therapy begin with a relationship based on trust and confidentiality. Our counselors aim to integrate treatment approaches, with specific techniques and interventions, tailored to the needs of each patient, as they explore their mental health concerns and navigate through life’s demands.

Psychological Testing

We believe that psychological or neuropsychological assessments can often provide the extensive, comprehensive, and highly specific information that is sometimes necessary for treatment. These assessments offer possible explanations of a patient’s observed struggles and strengths, as well as how they learn, think, cope and process.
