How do we help?

We provide a safe, caring, and confidential environment to discuss your problems. We guide you and your family based on our extensive professional experience to develop long term coping strategies; we do not offer a ‘quick fix’ for problems. We primarily rely on Cognitve Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a time tested, evidenced based, research supported, and scientifically validated method for changing thoughts, behaviors and feelings. We employ these techniques with cultural awareness and  develop personalized treatment plans delivered weekly for 8 to 16 weeks to address most issues. We offer a personalized, client-centered approach, tailoring our sessions to meet your goals and making your journey truly transformative.
