Our Practice Philosophy

  • Our practice consists of a group of Psychologists and other Mental Health Professionals who as Independent Contractors and not Employees of the practice, are specifically trained in understanding the differences between child, adolescent, and adult thought processes, emotions, and behaviors. Our goal is to reduce the frequency and intensity of Emotional and Behavioral Problems at School, Work and Home.  We help young children and teenagers to verbally communicate more effectively with the adults in their lives.
  • By learning to develop a further understanding of one another’s feelings, needs, and goals family members can grow together rather than grow apart.   Each family ultimately then develops its own identity and direction in life as they are provided with the Psychological tools and knowledge to analyze alternatives and more efficiently solve their own problems.
  • Although we specialize in the treatment of children and adolescents, all of our Clinical Associates / Independent Contractors also counsel adults. Our practice philosophy is to provide quality Psychological Services to the Broward County Community on a Sliding Fee Scale. We consider each case with regard to specific circumstances and financial hardship. 
  • The treatment of clients is never compromised due to their financial situation.
  • It is not uncommon for people to return to us years later as they encounter new or difficult transition periods in their lives such as: divorce, remarriage, and stepfamily adjustment. Often the parents, relatives, or neighbors of the children we’ve helped also come to us for Psychotherapy. Although we rely upon satisfied patients as our primary source of referrals, our reputation as being an honest and ethical practice also grants us the confidence of Pediatricians, Attorneys, and Teachers. We live by the logic of what goes around comes around and we enjoy helping children, adolescents, and adults to reduce their levels of stress, anxiety and depression. Basically, our success in Broward county has included being instrumental in problem solving for all ages.
