Welcome to APHS.
A person suffering from psychological or behavioral problems has been emotionally wounded or violated, and or not provided the unique sensitivity required for their particular emotional and or educational antenna.
For every individual struggling with attention, behavioral inappropriateness, anxiety,
sadness or poor thought control, there is a unique
and meaningful explanation that needs to be
True healing comes from restoring and renewing the things that define and reflect our
humanity, such as intimacy, community, art, music, patience, spirituality and play. Often adults need to recognize
sensitivities and skill set lapses that need to be reinforced, praised and conditioned. More often in our society, we need to be patient and allow the growth and change to happen on a natural time table.
We are a community-based psychological treatment
center offering a broad range of
psychological services including: Individual
Treatment, Couples Counseling, Family Therapy,
Domestic Violence Groups, Anger Management
Groups, Consultations, A Full Range of Psychological Testing and Expert Court Testimony.
We offer services to
children, adolescents and adults. Treatment programs and
services are designed to positively impact the full spectrum of
emotional, psychological, physical, social and spiritual
dimensions that make us fully human.
Our treatment facility is one of only a few of its kind
in the United States that specializes in and supports a
patient's wish and right to be treated without
the use and reliance upon psychiatric drugs.
For this reason, we often find great working relationships with patients often labeled "treatment resistant" and "non-compliant". We welcome clients finding psychotropic medications useful, and
hold no religious or other forced aversion to a patient's wish to use such interventions. Medications are very
successful for controlling thoughts, feelings and
behaviors; however, we specialize in fundamental
long lasting psychological treatment.
