Over the years, our licensed clinicians have helped hundreds of clients meet a variety of needs.We strive to treat the whole family system by cross-referring between our Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, Licensed Professional Counselors, Licensed Chemical Dependency Counselors, and Registered Play Therapists.

We recognize that every person we serve comes to us with unique backgrounds, and through the development of meaningful relationships, we are able to assess spiritual, emotional, psychological, and cognitive needs to develop individualized treatment plans for all of our clients. Our commitment to ethically sound clinical interventions allows us to positively impact the lives of people we serve.

We receive referrals from local churches, school counselors, pediatricians and psychiatrists in the area. Other clients may be referred by Children’s Protective Services, The Children’s Advocacy Center, Juvenile Probation, or other therapists. Regardless of how our clients are referred to us, we are a practice that treats each individual with dignity and respect.
