About Our Approach


We are a place that provides more than just psychotherapy. Through a combination of therapeutic techniques, your counselor will help you identify limiting beliefs and outmoded coping mechanisms that may be standing in your way to a more fulfilling life. When engaging in treatment, we take into account the whole person including their history and culture when considering what approach would be best for your unique needs. Many clients report progress as a result of their active engagement in the treatment modalities we employ.

In February 2018, Dr.Rios presented his research at the Latin Mental Health Conference, which received much praise.
