We Are Looking Forward To Meeting You.
Our Union office is a popular place. With the rise in population in Union and surrounding areas, we have been honored to help thousands of children and adults who live in the surrounding community and schools. But it goes beyond that. Our licensed counselors have decades of experience, have earned Nationally Accredited Certification in substance abuse, behavior therapy and employee assistance, and they understand their clients’ journeys, treating each person individually, according to their needs and diagnoses. Most importantly, our clinicians treat every client with compassion and dignity.
