We provide treatment in a number of different modalities.
In individual psychotherapy, the client and their therapist meet one-on-one, usually for one hour per week.
All of our therapists provide individual therapy for adults (18+)
Chris Russo, Jim McDonnell, Liz Silvestrini, and Jennie Ketcham Crooks provide teen psychotherapy, ages 13+.
In couples counseling, romantic partners meet together with their therapist, usually for one hour per week.
We provide couples counseling because anxiety and stress can often be the result of issues (e.g., emotional vulnerability, communication, forgiveness, etc) in relationships and because we are often not able to address these issues without the help of a professional.
Jennie Ketcham Crooks and Jim McDonnell provide couples counseling.
In family therapy, members of a family will meet together to work out issues that impact them (e.g., emotional vulnerability, communication, forgiveness, etc). Sometimes just two family members will meet, such as a parent and their child, though it is not uncommon for more than two family members to pursue family therapy together.
We provide family therapy because anxiety and stress can often be the result of ongoing issues in our family life and we are often not able to address these issues without the help of a professional.
Jim McDonnell provides family therapy.
