The Counseling centers  serve a spectrum of mental health needs of children, teen, adults, elderly and individuals with Intellectual/Developmental Disabilities (IDD) with co-occurring Mental Disorders targeting mental health recovery through psychotherapy.  Our service model varies with the specialty of each therapist, some specializing in psychotherapy using general psycho therapeutic methods while others focus solely on specific life issues and populations addressing a single issue through counseling.
