Our specialties include cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, and integrative approaches to psychotherapy. We serve clients who experience issues with anxiety (e.g., social anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, obsessive hoarding/cluttering, panic disorder, generalized anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder), mood (depression, bipolar disorder, seasonal depression), relationship or family difficulties, couples issues, as well as general mental health problems and issues of life-stress.

We can consult with parents and schools about educational accommodations and coping with academic difficulties.

The Weight Management Program focuses on lifestyle change that promotes weight loss by reducing calories, increasing physical activity, and changing the way you think weight loss and healthy eating. We know how important social support is to successfully losing weight. This program includes a social support component so group members can help keep each other motivated and on track.
