The Center welcomes all.

Our mission is to provide a safe comfortable space where you can discover insights, healing energy and strategies that empower you to live more fully.

A
ll of our licensed counselors, social workers, psychologists & psychotherapists offer a wide range of counseling in Pittsburgh and can be contacted online through our therapists directory 

And our directors are happy to offer their recommendation 

Support, like people, can come in many ways. If you're facing significant life changes, grief and loss, depression and anxiety episodes, gender related issues, relationship recovery, family systems, a critical workplace incident or something you just can't label, we can help.

Reaching out to change the inner workings of a problem is, quite simply, what therapy is all about.

  Our Hours
9:00am - 9:00pm, Monday - Saturday

All hours are by appointment.
Our therapists are glad to discuss individual availability.
