Services Designed with You in Mind
Treatment without forced diagnosis is a large part of our mission in this practice. We are here to provide services to people that usually don’t seek therapy. We have moved out of the medical model and into a recovery model of treatment. We intentionally do not take insurance and instead provide sliding scale services. We purposefully reach out to people that may not be able to afford services (even with insurance), those with heavy time constraints, and people who want to improve their overall well being and mental health.
