I have had a fantastic experience with Micah Brady and would highly recommend her to others. She provides practical, workable guidance that makes a big difference. I have consistently been impressed with her professionalism and empathy. It's been such a support to me and my family. She is by far one of the best therapists I've ever worked with!


I HIGHLY recommend Mark McCauley as a Therapist. He takes time to get to know you as a person first. He is very helpful and understanding. He works with the family as a whole not just the person he is counseling. If he doesn't know the answer to your questions he will help you through it to find the answer. You will not be disappointed with Mark because he really does care.

I recommend Micah Brady if you are looking for an experienced, caring, skilled Therapist for your teen or adult. She is responsive, grounded and approachable, has a great sense of humor and is a strong advocate for clients. We have learned so much and are grateful.

Dena and her team are highly skilled, compassionate and honest. They value communication and collaboration with other providers, which can be difficult to find.
