Years of administrative and clinical experience have merged with the new psychologies of treating women to develop unparalleled intensive outpatient programs and services for women and families experiencing mental health, addiction or eating disorders. Drawing on the disciplines of traditional mental health and addiction recovery principles, we have expanded the experience of therapy for women. We have refined the process of treatment for women and know this to be one of the most meaningful and sustaining gifts our women will give to themselves and their families.

Our programs are tailored for active women who have multiple responsibilities to balance in their daily lives. We offer women an alternative to mental health care that professional women and full time mothers must have in order to address their needs and continue in their primary roles.

Treating highly motivated women who desire a deeper understanding of themselves and strive for meaningful relationships with self and others is what we are privileged to do each day.

In refining the treatment experience for women; being careful and intentional in providing attention to the individual details and responsibilities of their lives is our commitment when planning care. We are realistic about the family, professional, and relational challenges that women encounter daily when faced with the need for private attention to their mental health. Maintaining your current roles and responsibilities without interruption is a priority that we are familiar with and strive to accommodate by offering day and evening therapy options.

We provide separate and distinct Intensive Outpatient Programs on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings from 9:00 A.M. to 12:00P.M. for women who have afternoon and evening obligations. For women who have professional or other day commitments, we offer Intensive Outpatient Programs on the evenings of Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 5:30 P.M. to 8:30 P.M. For women who need a lower level of therapeutic support weekly, we offer intensive group therapy programs one day per week, with day and evening options.

Additionally, individual, marital or family therapy appointments are readily scheduled at times that take into consideration the many priorities in women’s lives.

With over seventy five years of combined professional experience, our team of Licensed Clinicians lead by a Board Certified Psychiatrist assesses, evaluates and treats the often complex needs that develop in the lives of the women we care for. Utilizing only the most progressive therapies and gender specific techniques proven to treat women, we produce measurable results that restore each to their desired quality of life. We specialize in treating women with symptoms related to:

  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Addiction Disorders
  • Bi-Polar Disorder
  • Depressive Disorders
  • Eating Disorders
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder
  • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

Our clinicians continue to seek excellence in learning and developing skills that successfully address the multiplicity of issues that women with mental health, addiction, eating disorders and trauma have. Applying only the most advanced education and therapy techniques known at this time in the field of Women’s Mental Health, each woman can expect a life changing experience driven by daily discipline, spiritual awareness, self-awareness and relational awareness. Each woman is taught and begins to practice the necessary balance of taking care of self while taking care of others in a way that is healthy and nurturing to both. Our therapy is active, allowing each woman to experience change through the following therapy processes:

  • Art Therapy
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
  • Equine Therapy Techniques
  • Expressive Group Therapy
  • Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS)
  • Psychodrama
  • Psycho-Education Lectures
  • Shame Reduction Therapy
  • Trauma Resolution Therapy
  • Yoga Therapy Trauma-Informed for Mood Management

Our comprehensive approach to treating women begins with obtaining a thorough mental health history, psychiatric/addiction history and family history. Further assessments addressing symptom severity, behavioral history, spiritual history and trauma are also obtained over a period of one week. Once this phase of treatment is complete, an individual plan for treatment is developed and discussed for your approval. After each weekly appointment with the psychiatrist, a treatment planning meeting occurs to discuss progress. Thereafter, your individual plan of treatment is reviewed and revised to ensure your course of treatment is producing measurable improvement and change. Post discharge outcome monitoring with women who have completed our programs support that integrating weekly evaluation and support by the psychiatrist, individual therapy, expressive group therapies with research based psycho-education lectures, produces:

  • A significant reduction in presenting symptoms
  • Overall improvement in quality of life
  • Positive projections with measurable goals for the future
  • A fundamental understanding of recovery principles with established daily disciplines for a sustaining recovery.
