A Therapeutic Relationship that Supports, Confronts but Never Judges

Intensive therapy

“Our patients often struggle alone with serious secret and shameful self-doubt, and therapy offers a private space to form a relationship, come to trust someone and be less alone with their pain.” – Eric Plakun, MD, director of admissions and associate medical director

  • Patients meet four times weekly for intensive psychoanalytic/psychodynamic therapy with a doctor on the staff.
  • This model helps patients acknowledge, bear and put into perspective what they may have been struggling with for years.
  • A trusted relationship is forged in therapy that supports, confronts but never judges.

To learn more about our unique model, you can view and download A Patient’s Perspective.
