The Pathway Center for Psychotherapy is a community of clinicians that are committed to meeting you where you are. We are a group of clinicians who are addressing the emotional, mental, and behavioral concerns for individuals, couples and families. We may utilize a variety of services which may include counseling or psychotherapy, marital or couple’s counseling, family therapy, medication management, psychological testing, hypnotherapy, alcohol or drug treatment, or even play therapy for children.
The experienced clinicians at the Pathway Center come from a variety of disciplines, including: three psychiatrists, five psychologists, five clinical social workers, a pastoral counselor and a licensed professional counselor. Additionally, the Pathway Center has a well established training program that includes clinicians who have finished graduate school and are receiving specialized training in psychotherapy. Clinical supervision is offered for those clinicians who want to continue their training.
In a compassionate, caring way, clinicians at the Pathway Center can treat most mental health problems, including: anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, relationship problems, sexual dysfunction, trauma, ADHD, substance abuse, learning disabilities, obsessive-compulsive disorders, or stressful life transitions. Our patients range in age from the smallest children, adolescents, adults and geriatrics. They may be seen individually, as a couple, family, or even in a group. The family may be intact, blended, or even separated. Couples may be mixed gender or same sex.
Because of the complex insurance world, most plans are covered by at least one of the clinicians at Pathway Center for Psychotherapy. There are even some evening and weekend appointments available.
If you are a new patient, it is important that you arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment time to complete the necessary paperwork. Minors (age 18 and below) should be accompanied by their parents or guardians. If using insurance, please bring your insurance card, and an identification card. Your copay, deductible or payment is due at the time of your visit. Remember to check with your insurance company regarding your payment responsibilities.
