Fee arrangements can be made with a clinician in cases of financial hardship. We will not deny service to anyone for financial reasons. 

Our practice philosophy

Our staff of clinicians and graduate interns has been trained in the family systems approach. This means that we believe problems are best understood in the full context of everything a person faces. Our staff will help you examine the many factors that contribute to the issues you are experiencing.

Services are offered by second-year graduate students and pre-licensed professionals working with and under the supervision of Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists and AAMFT Approved Supervisors.Services Offered.
