We were founded on Cape Cod more than 20 years ago to provide expert, professional psychological services focusing on the Cognitive and Behavioral approach to diagnosis and treatment of psychological matters to under-served populations, with an emphasis on difficult-to-diagnose and difficult-to-treat psychological disorders. Our goal was to introduce services that would emphasize strengths, not weaknesses, and help teach people how to overcome obstacles and thrive, not merely survive, what Shakespeare called, “the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.” Or, in other words: Life. Our goal is to help people move forward, not remain stuck or trapped in the past, and to teach others in the helping professions to do the same.
Since then, we have grown to provide Behavioral & Psychological Assessments (including School Psychology Assessments, Special Education and Neuropsychological Assessments); Clinical Psychological Services to adults and senior citizens; Forensic Assessments for criminal and civil procedures, including immigration, divorce and custody matters; Clinical and Case Consultations to other professionals; Executive Coaching and half-day and day-long seminar trainings to employers, employees and school and college personnel; Continuing Education services to schools and colleges; Clinical Child and Family Psychological services to children (including very young children), adolescents and families; and Professional Education Services to the those in the Mental Health, Legal and Medical Communities. You can find more complete descriptions of these services throughout our website.
