Meet the Team

Our expertly trained team includes psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, social workers, nurses, and occupational and art therapists, all of whom specialize in the treatment of traumatized individuals. Each patient receives a comprehensive evaluation based on a clinical assessment, consultation with referring providers, psychometric assessment, and other relevant data.

The patient’s treatment team meets three times weekly to update assessment and treatment planning. All members are actively involved in the team meeting, as we strongly believe that collaboration best facilitates a comprehensive understanding of the patient’s treatment progress and ongoing assessment of the treatment plan.
