Which Will You Choose?

"When something bad happens, you have three choices. You can let it define you, let it destroy you, or you can let it strengthen you."

Psychological Evaluations

We offer psychological evaluations to individuals needing an assessment for child custody hearings.  These need to be scheduled as soon as possible since they involve not only several assessments that must be completed but also an in-person session with the therapist.  We suggest scheduling these at least 2-months in advance.  

The report is then released to the individual and/or attorney.  These evaluations require a cash payment in advance, no exceptions.  See the Mental Health – Counseling Fee page for costs.

Melissa is such a caring therapist.  She has a different approach and outlook compared to other counselors I have worked with.  She helped me move past my trauma and really helped me when other therapists couldn't.  I highly recommend her, she is fantastic! 


Posted by anonymous - Melissa is the best therapist I could have asked for.  I've had counseling in the past but never got the help I needed.  All I can say is she changed my world for the better!

I saw Melissa, my therapist, for chronic pain management and anxiety. She was so patient and kind, trying different techniques until we found ones that worked for my issues. I used to have daily anxiety episodes but since ending my therapy almost a month ago, I have only had a couple anxiety attacks and now I have the tools to get through them. I am now living my life and not letting my pain and anxiety keep me disabled. I highly recommend this therapist!
