Our Approach to Therapy

At CHAD we believe that the important journey of healing begins with a positive relationship with your therapist.  Regardless of the specific techniques that are used to treat your problems, the most important foundation is a strong “therapeutic” relationship built on trust, empathy and confidentiality.

What is psychotherapy? THERAPY is a collaborative process where therapist and client work on mutually developed goals using the expertise and understanding of the therapist and full participation of the client.

Psychotherapy can be a powerful way to better understand what is blocking you from thriving and living your best life.  Therapy can help you to not only decrease negative symptoms that might be affecting you, but it can help you to achieve more meaning, fulfillment and overall sense of wellbeing in your life. 

You can expect to learn skills to help you better cope with stress in your life, get a handle on your emotions, and realize balance in your life.

Whether you want to understand how past experiences could be affecting your patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving or you want to learn tools that can help you thrive in your work, relationships and personal life, CHAD can help.

Using a combination of specialized therapy techniques, we help to address the root of clients’ distress and work on deeper understanding and practical skills to bring about lasting change.

At CHAD, we also believe that it is important to be mindful of how our culture and background affect our experiences.  For this reason, we provide treatment that affirms and is respectful of clients’ cultural values and beliefs.
