Our Specialities & Services
Psychological evaluation is a crucial process that offers profound insights into your mental and emotional well-being. They can also be instrumental in clarifying diagnoses, informing treatment planning, and guiding therapeutic interventions. Our comprehensive and diagnostic evaluations can assess for ADHD, autism, academic and learning difficulties, depression, anxiety, personality disorders, trauma, and interpersonal difficulties. We provide assessments for children ages 4 and up, teens, and adults.
Therapy for Black Men
Taking the step to explore therapy can feel daunting, especially when it comes to talking about challenging emotions. But trust me, it's okay not to be okay. Therapy offers a safe, judgment-free space to navigate these tough feelings. It's a journey that can lead to a deeper understanding of yourself and more fulfilling relationships with others. Together, we'll work through this—breaking down barriers and unlocking the tools for your growth and happiness.
Therapy for Children & Teens
Therapy can be a valuable tool for children and teenagers. Our expert clinicians create a warm, child-friendly environment where young minds can explore their thoughts, emotions, and challenges. We understand the unique needs of children and adolescents, addressing issues such as anxiety, depression, behavior problems, academic and school stress, and family dynamics. Through evidence-based approaches, we support their growth, strengthen their self-esteem, and provide them with tools to navigate life.
Trauma impacts how you see the world and react to it. Trauma therapy, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), offers a path to recovery for those who've experienced emotional wounds. Our trauma-informed therapists create a safe, supportive environment to explore past traumas, fostering understanding and healing. EMDR, an evidence-based therapy, aids in processing traumatic memories and reducing their impact, often leading to quicker symptom relief and personal growth. We guide you through this, empowering you to regain control over your life, build resilience, and find hope beyond the shadows of trauma. Your healing and well-being are our top priorities.
Parent Training & Support
Our parent training and support services are designed to empower families and enhance parenting skills. We understand that raising children comes with unique challenges, and our expert trainers provide guidance, strategies, and resources to navigate those complexities. Whether you're dealing with behavioral issues, developmental concerns, or seeking to build stronger family bonds, our compassionate approach equips you with effective tools and techniques. We believe that informed, confident parents can create nurturing environments for their children's growth and well-being.
Therapy for Black Women
Therapy tailored for Black women is a sacred and affirming space where your unique experiences, challenges, and strengths are honored. We understand the intersectionality of your identity and the impact it has on your mental health journey. Our compassionate therapists provide culturally competent care, addressing issues such as racial trauma, identity, self-care, and empowerment. We are committed to supporting you as you navigate life's complexities and celebrate the beauty of your Black womanhood.
Therapy for Adults
Adulting is hard. You are looking for a space to help you navigate work, home, and relationships. We understand that adulthood comes with its unique set of stressors, and our therapeutic approach is tailored to meet your individual needs.
