“In order to effectively help another human being, one must proceed with compassion, caring, and knowledge, ensuring that the Mind, Body, and Spirit are treated as one.”
The Center for Psychology is a multi-disciplinary practice focused on helping people learn to live more productive and satisfying lives.
A team of licensed psychologists, social workers, professional counselors, and bodyworkers provide services that integrate many traditions of helping, from psychotherapy to Ayurvedic medicine and meditation.
The Center For Psychology offers quality behavioral health care services to adults, couples and adolescents. We strive to provide an environment that will ensure your confidentiality, promote growth and demonstrate respect. A full range of treatment approaches is offered and a plan specific to your individual needs will be developed.
It is our experience that the process of change and growth is most effectively accomplished when all aspects of the person are treated as a whole; body, mind and spirit. The suffering that motivates most people to seek help is usually associated with some form of pain and/or fear that is playing itself out in one’s life.
As these issues are explored, a shift occurs. Within this shift in perspective, one begins to see themselves and their life story more clearly. This clarity forms the foundation of the truth from which the change process flows and ultimately brings an end to suffering.
