Feeling overwhelmed?

YOU’RE NOT ALONE.

We can help. Through a team-based approach that emphasizes psychotherapy and a focus on both your mind and body, we help people of all ages live happier, healthier and more productive lives. We use scientifically-validated methods to help you develop healthier, more effective habits. You and your care team will work together to identify and change the thought and behavior patterns that are keeping you from feeling your best—to not only solve your most pressing problems, but also so you can better cope with whatever challenges arise in the future. Together, we’ll help you harness your natural resilience.

Who makes up your team?

PSYCHIATRISTS

Psychiatrists are licensed medical doctors who completed at least four additional years of specialized training after medical school to become experts in mental health, which includes both psychotherapy and the use of medication. Because psychiatrists are physicians, we will first address any physical health issues that could be causing mental health issues such as thyroid or vitamin deficiency. Psychiatrists are the only experts qualified to determine if there is a role for psychotropic medication in the treatment of mental health issues. All clients meet with a psychiatrist at least once and if regular care is recommended typically about once a month.

PSYCHOTHERAPISTS

Our Psychotherapists include Psychologists and Marriage and Family Therapists.  Our psychotherapists are experts in the mind and human behavior. In addition to college, Psychologists have completed typically six additional years of post-graduate studies and thousands of clinical hours to earn a doctoral degree of a PsyD or PhD.  MFTs complete a similar training pathway earning a master’s degree.  Psychotherapists use psychotherapy to help clients establish goals for happier living and develop a plan of action to achieve those goals. Our psychotherapists are trained in a myriad of modalities of psychotherapy and will match the treatment plan to your individual needs. All of our psychotherapists have expertise in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT as well as mindfulness and meditation. Clients typically meet with Psychotherapists for weekly psychotherapy sessions.

NUTRITIONISTS

Nutritionists are experts in physical health with a focus on nutrition. Nutritionists or dietitians complete a specialized educational program focused on nutritional issues in the context of medical conditions and overall physical and mental health. Our nutritionists work with clients to develop and nurture a healthy relationship with food – the fuel that drives us. Today many people have adopted a variety of different food regimens reflecting an adaptation to food and allergy sensitivity or due to a perspective on the source of food. Clients work with our nutritionists to ensure they have a balanced and healthy food plan designed to maximize energy and meet nutritional requirements. Clients typically meet with a nutritionist on a weekly basis.

CARE COORDINATORS

Care Coordinators are your personal concierge. They are your go-to person and initial point of contact for any question you may have. You can think of them like your best friend – they’re here for you when you need them. Whether it’s assistance with scheduling an appointment, understanding your insurance or handling a medication refill or prior authorization, your dedicated Care Coordinator is available to help. Think of your Care Coordinator like the quarterback of your care team – they’re focused on ensuring your entire experience runs as smoothly as possible.

Live the P.E.R.Fi.C. Life!

PERFiC is a structure designed to provide you with perspective on what matters most to you. You live your entire life limited only by the confines of your mind and imagination. And your life is a consequence of the choices you make. Establishing goals for how you define happiness is critical to making choices that help you live the life you want. For psychotherapy to be effective you need goals.

PERFiC is a framework for establishing these goals. Grab a pen and paper or use your phone. Write this down:

P is for Physical Health

E is for Emotional / Mental / Spiritual Health

R is for Relationships: familial, romantic, platonic

Fi is for Financial Health

C is for Career / Passion

 

Give yourself a grade or a score, A-F, 0-100% in each category. Unless you’ve given yourself an A or 100%, identify what would an A or 100% look like. Write it down! Congratulations – you’ve just completed your first homework assignment and established some goals designed to maximize your happiness.

Our services encompass an appreciation for optimal physical and mental health:

Your Move

The majority of our clients are very successful, working professionals, leaders and luminaries engaged in careers and pursuits spanning sports, media, entertainment, fashion, finance, law, healthcare and technology. While many clients are referred to us by other professionals for further evaluation and treatment, most contact us directly, simply appreciating that their quality of life could be better.
