Perimeter Therapy Associates, LLC provides psychological services for children, adolescents, adults, older adults, couples, and families. Our approach to therapy is tailored to the unique needs of each client, facilitating positive change in a warm and caring environment. We utilize a combination of cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, attachment theory, mind/body techniques and dialectical behavior therapy in working with our clients.

Our role is to act as a facilitator, providing tools for the client, couple or family to utilize in order to overcome obstacles. The broad goal of therapy is to help people make fundamental changes in the way they think and act in their relationships, with an aim of moving toward an improved quality of life.

The decision to begin counseling is an important one. The counseling process encourages you to develop a heightened understanding of yourself allowing you to improve your ability to problem- solve, cope and communicate effectively.

Successful counseling is a valuable endeavor that requires your commitment to the process. The more actively involved you are, the more effective counseling will be for you.
