We are dedicated to helping people in all aspects of their lives to become more whole, healthy, happy, fulfilled, and successful. We are dedicated to integrity and thoroughness in all our professional activities. We see children, adolescents and adults in individual, relational, and family outpatient psychotherapy. We offer many treatment options, ranging from brief, problem-oriented strategies, to intensive, longer term therapy. We have animal-assisted therapy available with two therapy dogs in-training. We also take pride in being a valuable resource for churches, synagogues, schools, businesses, the legal community, and fellow medical professionals for whom we can provide consultation, education, and crisis-management intervention. Both Dr. Cathryn Harris and Dr. Mitchell Harris have a specialization in trauma, using EMDR and other specialized techniques.
