The term “empirically-supported” means that we use techniques that have been found to be effective in the scientific literature. All of our services are informed by scientific research, whenever possible. We specialize in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy. We provide individual and couple treatment programs.
