My Approach to Helping
The most important person in the therapeutic process is the client. Therapy is interactive relationship. This is a group practice with providers who will not simply nod or convey empathy. Together we will look for solutions. We used a solution based approach to assist in exploring the patterns of behaviors, expectations and relationships to form new more adaptive ways to manage the world around you. We are here for you. All the therapist's at this practice understand that your needs are primary. We work hard to set aside our own agendas and be flexible to your needs.

Simply to have access to the best of the best in the Pittsburgh area, because of the needs for our services in this area and finally because of an deep understanding of how important it is to have other clinicians to guide each and support each other. We all believe in the same basic principles: Therapy is an interactive relationship in which the clients needs our first and foremost. Education, supervision and personal growth are essential to being a good therapist Recovery is always possible.
On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
We understand ambivalence. It can feel as if you are very vulnerable when sharing emotions or problems. People worry about stigma or about being judged and labeled. We make every effort to create a safe non-judgmental environment in which you can explore life's challenges.
