Our hope is to provide crisis stabilization and support primarily through group support, beginning in 2020. More information will be made available in the weeks to come, as logistics are finalized
In the meantime, we are happy to provide resources and referrals for other low-cost and sliding scale agencies in the area for individuals seeking therapeutic support.
We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you in advance for your patience.
