We use evidence-based treatments to effectively treat common psychological issues in children, adolescents and adults, such as depression, anxiety and adjustment-related issues. We also specialize in pre-teen and adolescent counseling services to not only help the younger members of our community deal with common psychological and behavioral issues, but also to help them adjust to the demands of a dual school curriculum and a traditional lifestyle. As many psychological issues affect not only individuals, but their partners and families as well, we offer family therapy and couples counseling services that take into account the unique situations that may affect religiously observant families and couples.
