An assessment is the first step in the treatment process. The intention of an assessment is to determine the most appropriate approach based upon your unique needs. Additionally, the assessment is an opportunity for you to meet the provider(s), ask questions, and get a feel for the treatment environment. In person and virtual assessments are available.



Individual therapy is a process through which clients work one-on-one with a trained therapist to explore the function of their behaviors. Throughout treatment, a person can expect to gain insight about themselves as well as learn effective ways of managing urges, emotion and thoughts. Individual therapy is a collaborative process in which different treatment modalities will be used; this will all be tailored to meet the needs of each person.

Treatment approaches include Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Contextual Therapy, and process oriented modalities. The ultimate goal of individual therapy is to support each individual in living a more valued and meaningful life.

Sessions can take place in person or virtually.

  • Mindfulness
  • Distress Tolerance
  • Emotion Regulation

Family therapy is a process through with clients and their family members (or support persons) work with a trained therapist to explore the relationship patterns within the system.  “Family” is defined as a group of people who care about each other and consider themselves family.

The goal of family therapy is to increase understanding, communication and support within the family system.  Skills will be taught to help facilitate this process.

We believe that family members are an important resource and ally in the healing process.
