Beginning March 16th, we moved to offering online services when appropriate. All of our clinicians are trained to provide counseling by video conferencing through our secure telehealth platform.

While they are working remotely at this time, non-clinical staff are available during normal business hours to answer your questions and/or to schedule a free 20-minute phone consultation to see if you would benefit from online therapy.
