The Center welcomes all.

Our mission is to provide a safe comfortable space where you can discover insights, uncover healing energy and create strategies that empower you to live more fully.

All of our licensed counselors, psychologists, psychotherapists & social workers offer a wide range of counseling in Pittsburgh and can be contacted online through our website. And our directors are glad to offer their recommendation.

If you're facing significant life changes, grief and loss, depression and anxiety episodes, gender related issues, relationship recovery, family systems, a critical workplace incident or something you can't even label, we can help with support, insight and compassion.

Reaching out to change the inner workings of a problem is, quite simply, what therapy is all about.
