People seek therapy for a variety of reasons and in a variety of circumstances. Some individuals find their way to us in times of crisis, driven by a family rift or professional rupture. Others are catalyzed to action by their sense that something is amiss; maybe things in their life are just not as satisfying as they'd hoped, or as satisfying as they once were: For instance, a parent who feels misattuned to their child or to their own parent, or signs of increased substance use in the family, or symptoms of anxiety or depression. And some find their way to CHD simply because they have come to a point in their life when they want to know more about themselves. Regardless of what might have inspired your search, the Center for Human Development faculty offers individual, couples, and group therapy tailored to both your needs and preferences. From weekly or biweekly sessions in accordance with your schedule to traditional psychoanalysis, and everything in between, we are here to help you speak; we are ready to listen; we are trained to guide with compassion.
