F.A.Q.'s

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why come to us ? +

    Problems are a part of living. It is only natural to try to solve one's own problems, perhaps with the help of friends of family. However, when a person is involved in a problem it is difficult to be objective. Today most people realize that seeking professional help is not an admission of failure but a sensible recognition that their situation requires professional help.The initial appointment is generally arranged for the purpose of evaluating the particular problem or situation. If the problem involves a couple or a family, all parties are encouraged to attend the first session but may be seen separately on succeeding visits. The evaluation may include psychological testing as an aid in developing a treatment plan.
  • What mental health services do you offer +

We offer testing and assessments for many different mental health concerns you or a loved one may be experiencing.
