Thank you for trusting us with your family’s care. We look forward to working with you!
At this practice, our mission is to help individuals, couples, and families live authentic, connected, and happy lives. Our work is focused on assisting clients in identifying and growing their unique set of strengths while learning the skills that research shows to be necessary for building healthy emotion regulation skills, balanced relationships, and the ability to thrive through challenge. We believe that every person holds within them the capacity to lead a life of joy and connection, and that helping clients fully realize this potential will create individual happiness, stronger families, and more peaceful communities.
We recognize that finding a therapist who understands your needs, works with you to identify your goals, and “just gets you” is important, but can be an intimidating process. At MQA, we work as a collaborative, multidisciplinary team, meeting on a weekly basis to discuss treatment approaches, learn from one another, and provide teaching and mentorship to the next generation.
