Our Patient Care Team is here to welcome you to our practice. They understand that starting psychotherapy can be a daunting undertaking and they are here to help make scheduling, insurance filing, managing your registration, and psychological evaluations as easy as possible. They will walk you through the process, help you find the provider, the specialty, and the appointment time that meets your needs. They like to say, “the administrative office is where magic happens; the therapy office is where miracles happen!”
