The clinic uses a wide variety of clinical practices that are individualized, culturally sensitive, strengths-based, and include the use of evidence based practices and interpersonal approaches.

Adult treatment is available for a variety of concerns including relationship and stress-related problems, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, posttraumatic stress disorder, and more. Adults can be seen individually or with a partner in marital or couples therapy.

Treatment for children and teens is available for a number of concerns including behavioral and emotional difficulties, attentional problems, oppositional behaviors, anxiety, depression, trauma-related difficulties, autism spectrum disorders, and more. Children/teens can be seen individually or in family sessions.Very young children may also be seen in parent-child sessions. While treatment is tailored to fit the needs of each individual or family, it is expected that families will be involved in the treatment program when children are referred.
