If you find yourself, your child, or your family struggling, the first thing you need is someone to listen and understand. Our psychologists and psychotherapists create an empathic environment to provide therapy for children, adolescents, and adults, including individual therapy, group therapy, parent coaching, couples therapy, and family therapy. Our compassionate providers utilize a variety of evidence-based modalities, individualized for every patient. Supportive, personalized therapy is provided within the context of a carefully matched, strong therapeutic relationship with one of our highly trained clinicians. Our clinicians collaborate not only with WBMA’s psychiatrists, but also with caregivers, other medical/mental health providers, and community members (e.g., teachers) to ensure comprehensive treatment and support (with consent of course). We welcome those interested in care based in expressive therapies, such as art, drama, and music, as well. Telehealth services are available in some circumstances, including for parent coaching. We serve most mental health needs, and provide referrals when we are not an appropriate match.
