About Our Team
Groundbreaking leaders -- diverse fields -- Connection-based
Our Center is based in Pasadena, California, and gathers carefully selected expert practitioners from various fields—psychology, social work, marriage and family, pediatrics, neuropsychology, educational therapy, occupational therapy, parent education, assistive technology, nutrition, and on and on—with each practitioner offering a holistic perspective, grounded in the science of interpersonal neurobiology. Individuals and families who visit will receive multidisciplinary treatment that is consistent, well informed, relationally based, and always aimed at helping them thrive.
