Get Centered at the Center


As we continue to navigate the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, our first thought and priority is for the safety and well-being of our clients and employees.  In these unprecedented times, it is important that we come together to support each other.

With this in mind, we have taken precautions to protect our clients and our staff. 

  • Our agency has shortened our office hours to 9:00a-5:00p. 

  • Services:  There will be no interruption in services, except 95% will be conducted telephonically.  All group sessions, individuals, midpoints and exit will be done over the phone.

  • All intakes and court enrollments will continue in person, maintaining the social distancing directive, as well as monitoring any symptoms.

  • Telecounseling for Intakes.  You will now have an option to do your intakes via video conferencing.  Please call to ask for more details.

Counseling is our specialty!

CBT:  Cognitive Behavior Therapy--one of our specialties!  Cognitive-behavioral therapy is based on the idea that our thoughts cause our feelings and behaviors, not external things, like people, situations, and events.  The benefit is that we can change the way we think, feel and act even if the situation does not change.
