Facilitated by Dr. Gardenswartz or Neda Sanai, M.A., AMFT, a small group of individuals come together to share areas of struggle and receive feedback on how their behavior impacts others. The group setting provides a safe environment for members to take interpersonal risks.


Clients work one-on-one with Dr. Gardenswartz, Stacey Lurie, LCSW, or Neda Sanai, M.A., AMFT.  The focus of therapy might be on current suffering, childhood trauma, or the pursuit of personal growth and self-knowledge. They help client improve relationships, as well as change unhealthy behaviors, beliefs and emotions.


Children and teens are seen by Stacey Lurie, LCSW. A combination of behavioral therapy (game playing, art, guided imagery) and talk therapy (including cognitive therapy) are used to address anxiety, depression, behavioral issues, and family/peer conflict.
