Therapy Services

At PPS we believe in an approach that is person-centered and based in a psychodynamic understanding of the individual. We believe that therapy is a personal relationship between people and requires mutual trust, openness, and honesty. Selecting a therapist that you work well with is an important step in this journey. We invite you to contact us any time at 919 464-5727 919 464-5727 or to discuss your individual needs and choose the direction that is right for you. This talk is free and without any obligation. You may use this number or the contact form to set up an appointment or ask additional questions.

We offer psychotherapy for a number of concerns, some of which include: 


     School and Behavioral Problems

     Relational Issues






     Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)


     Child and Adolescent Therapy

     Couples Therapy


While we believe that the techniques we use are less important than the relationship we develop with each client, we use a variety of well-known therapeutic techniques. Techniques are selected based on each client's individual needs, and more than one technique may be used with a client. A few of the techniques we use include:


     Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT)
