Providing adults, children, and families with therapeutic and psychiatric treatment to overcome their struggles and improve their quality of life.


When children, youth, or adults struggle with mental health issues, the whole family feels the impact. Holy Family Institute’s experienced mental health professionals create a unique treatment plan for each individual. These customized plans may include individual therapy, couples and family therapy, and psychiatric treatments like cognitive behavioral therapy, which help patients understand how thoughts affect feelings and behaviors.

Our trained counselors also offer individual and group sessions personalized for all age groups: children, pre-adolescents, teenagers, adults, and senior citizens. Our mental health professionals are committed to aiding the positive, continuous growth of every person in their care. Many of our clients also face issues related to abuse, neglect, trauma, depression, parent-child conflict, anger management, attachment disorders, and low self-esteem.

Holy Family Institute accepts most insurance plans. If you do not have health coverage, we will determine your payment using a sliding scale based on income.
