ATC focuses on the treatment of clients who have tried other forms of treatment without achieving the desired results.

Psychotherapy, pastoral counseling and coaching are valuable assets to anyone looking for answers. At ATC we value the services of our referring colleagues are using to support the client. Adding Neurotherapy for an unusual symptom can make all the difference in your work. We value a team approach to treatment. 

Clients with brain injury, anxiety, trauma, depression, stress, and addiction and many other problems have been happily surprised by how fast and well our techniques can help. Our approach treats the whole client, body and mind.

Our techniques have been shown to be particularly effective in treating brain injuries. Many of our clients have reported benefits within a few weeks. 

We value your input and will keep you updated about your patient or parishioner’s progress, to the extent that the client allows. We encourage communication between all the members of the treatment team.
