Informing People Toward a Better Quality of Life
Co-Operative Partners in Therapy, LLC
Co-Operative Partners in Therapy, LLC was established in 1996 to provide Individual, Family, Couple, Adolescent, and Group counseling in a confidential & comfortable setting. In addition we provide Psychological Testing, Court Assessments, Mediation, and in-home Comprenensive Geriatric Assessments.

Our Experience with Families, Trauma Survivors, & Adolescents led to the formation that a persons thoughts, beliefs & behaviors are the combined result of the interplay and action of Biology + Psychology+ Environment + Spirituality. Therefore, in order for healing & behavioral change to take place each of these elements must be assessed & brought into balance, taking into account the clients wants, needs & level of development.

Counseling is a collaborative process that encourages the acquisition of self-knowledge, cognitive restructuring & behavioral change.
