“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response.
In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”

-Viktor Frankl

The Rise Center for Psychology considers all those with whom we work as individuals to be viewed holistically. Our approach looks at clients not simply as individuals who present with a symptom to be treated, but rather as a story needing to be understood. We offer a wide variety of services to meet the needs of all our clients. Our therapists provide individual psychotherapy, as well as marital, family, and group therapy. In addition, psychiatrists are able to provide pharmacological interventions when clinically indicated. Our practice has a diagnostician who provides complete neuropsychological and psychoeducational evaluations for school-aged children through college-aged adults and beyond. These evaluations include recommendations for home, school, career, and therapy. We provide follow-up consultation, psychotherapy, and pharmacotherapy when needed. The Rise Center for Psychology also provides high school students with a college counseling expert in order to help them through the process of applying to college. This begins sophomore or junior year in high school researching the best fit schools, then continues into senior year working through the application process, and ultimately ends after the student is accepted into the college of their choice.


We very much look forward to joining you on the journey towards greater levels of life satisfaction. If there is anything you would like to see added to what we currently offer, please let us know as we continue growing into our future.
