We believe that change is the only constant in life, and that through accepting the changes surrounding our lives we can grow as people on personal, professional, and spiritual levels. We offer individual, group and family therapy services in a confidential and relaxing space. We provide customized, integrated, evidenced based treatment services. Our services include educational, psychological, and wellness treatment.

At Innovative Therapy Services, we work with adults, children, teens, couples and families. On a whole, we aim to empower our clients in understanding that counseling works best when individuals are well balanced and invested. We initiate conversations and strategies that focus on achieving optimum health through treating the whole person.

Our work with children and teens embraces the unique situations each child is exposed to. We realize that children are growing up in today’s society facing many different challenges, with social media, technology, and cyber bullying at the forefront. The therapists at Innovative Therapy Services strive to form therapeutic alliances with these youth. Our treatment approach takes into consideration that the decisions and obstacles faced by them, are vast and constantly evolving.

When working with all of our clients, we at Innovative Therapy Services make every effort to develop a working understanding of the multiple influences of each person’s overall emotional, physical, and spiritual health, so that our clients are able to make informed decisions that improve overall functioning.
