Sustainable Emotional Health & Recovery

Our Difference

We treat the core issues that are the basis of whatever issues you are seeking help for in innovative, involving ways.


We believe in the Success Model: We want you to get and be healthy the first time and our comprehensive approach can accomplish that.


All you need to provide is the commitment and motivation.

We Address The Core Issues 

Because core issues are the engine that drives our behaviors, we at CORE believe that addressing them is the most vital part of healing. 

Types of core issues that drive behavior but are often invisible to us as we suffer with anxiety, angst, anger, deep sadness, compulsions and addictions are:


  • Abandonment 

  • Sexual and Physical Abuse

  • Dysfunctional Life Patterns

  • Shame 

  • Trauma

  • Neglect 

  • Emotional Abuse

Our Work

Our work is based on the latest research on attachment issues and brain plasticity – or ability of the brain to heal and form new neural pathways in response to therapy. This is the newest and most effective way to treat mental and emotional health, including addiction. We have had tremendous success with our method, which we individualize for each client, and look forward to helping you.


At CORE, our primary reason for doing what we do is to help people like you overcome life’s many difficulties. We are here to help you not only get through the discomfort of whatever is currently an issue for you but also to get to, and heal, why it is happening – or keeps on happening – so that you can move forward in growth and life.

Our Motivation

What else motivates us? We know what it takes to do this the right way. That is; you come first – your needs, your goals, your life.

WHo Are We?

CORE represents the culmination of over thirty years of work in private psychotherapy practice, non-profit psychotherapy treatment and work in the addictions field. We are psychotherapists. It is what we do and what we love. Helping you overcome whatever blocks you have to lasting balance, centeredness and happiness is our overriding goal and desire.

Your Success

is Our Success

In addiction treatment, so many centers are about the failure model – you fail and they take you back in and make more money. We don’t want you back! We want you to succeed. Not everybody does succeed immediately, and we are here for you if that happens but we want nothing more than your success – to treat you with the respect you deserve and help you learn how to value who you are and how to want that more than any drug or other object of addiction.

Our Approach

At CORE, our approach is multi-dynamic and exciting; we work the problem from the outside (behaviors) in and from the inside (core beliefs and initiating events) out. Our clients come to us because our highly interactive and activity-based methods are engaging and can effect true change giving them a chance at lasting and permanent change, treating the trauma and the underlying mental health issues that cause unwanted behaviors and disruption to emotional health and well-being. In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, we offer truly personalized approach tailored to your needs to help attain the personal growth you’re striving for. Our practice is based in interactive, solution-focused therapy to help you effectively address your challenges. We integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to you. With compassion and understanding, we work with you to help you build on your strengths and attain the personal growth you are committed to accomplishing.

The CORE MethodTM

Our proprietary approach, The CORE Method (TM), focuses on the actual causes of mental and emotional health issues  – the “Core Issues” – and uses testing, research-based and cutting-edge therapies based on the newest neuroscience research in the ability of the brain to heal and change. We focus on early negative experiences (trauma), core mental & emotional health issues and the resulting behavior creating effective results, allowing our clients to grow and succeed in reaching their emotional health goals.

Our Psychotherapy

With most psychotherapy, the core issues that drive our choices and behavior are usually ignored and only the presenting behavior is treated with behavioral fixes. We treat the presenting behavior – because it is troubling to you and you want it to change – and we help you identify and work through what is necessary to recognize the patterns in your life, identify initiating events and their resultant changes in beliefs and behaviors, and work to heal them so that you can move forward and grow in life.
