It is our belief that a holistic approach utilizing the expressive arts engages the body, mind, and spirit in the path to wellness. To augment our clinical practices and most appropriately meet the individual needs of those we serve, we offer a variety of treatment modalities.

The Coordinator of Therapeutic Services is a psychologist who is integral to developing plans for those patients requiring more specialized interventions. This person ensures the resources necessary to carry out the plan are available as well as provides leadership, education and clinical support to the staff.
