What we believe in.

We believe that many problems in life occur when people are not able to live and behave in ways that are consistent with their core values.  During periods of inconsistency, individuals can experience depression, anxiety, isolation, physical health problems, and grief. Our approach consists of a combination of diagnosis and evidence-based treatments which help bring consistency between a person’s life and their values.  When someone experiences balance in their lives, they experience improved enjoyment and happiness.
