growth I S   I N   Y O U R hands

Today you are one step closer to a new you where you feel empowered and on a positive path to growth and well-being.

As a Solution Focused Therapist, Executive Director, Michael Kaufman, M.F.T., Psy.D., and his team utilize both Cognitive-Behavioral and Family Systems techniques. Our goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.

If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, we look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
