Our 5 Core Values

We genuinely care about our employees and clients alike. Our primary objective is to provide care to those who are in need of help.

We strive to do the right thing by upholding the laws of our state and the rules of our licensing boards, as well as working within our scope of practice. We also believe in honesty and transparency as it relates to all fees and charges.

We endeavor to hire high-quality therapists that provide excellent therapeutic services. We emphasize continued clinical growth of our therapists through educational opportunities.

We believe that the healthier the therapist, the more effective the therapy. Therefore we aim to help our therapists maintain healthy balance between work and personal life.

We know that no one therapist can possibly know everything or help every client on their own, so we promote a team approach to all clinical matters, encouraging peer consultation and, when appropriate, connecting with specialized services.

Our Testimonials

What Our Patients Say

I have been to a couple of therapists trying to find the right fit and Dr. Christian is absolutely amazing. I would And do refer her to anyone that I meet that is looking for a therapist. She has the right approach and allows her clients to lead the therapeutic sessions. She truly has a gift and knows exactly how to approach people and meet them where they are. I am so thrilled to be a client of hers.

If I could give this man 1 million stars I would. Dr. Stanford’s steady, compassionate, non judgmental expertise and counsel has made a lasting impact for my family and in my life personally. To say he was a godsend is no understatement.

Dr. Fast was easy to talk to and helped us work through a few life events. The Stanford group was great to work with and very professional. I would recommend Dr. Fast and Dr. Stanford to any couple or individual.

David Couples Counseling with Dr. Jennifer Fast

We really appreciated Dr. Stanford’s ability to create a relaxed environment, empathy towards multiple points of view, and thoughtful advice. We also appreciated that he gave us custom exercises for outside of therapy that really helped us to progress. Now, post therapy, we are doing great and still reference his advice. Our time with Dr. Stanford helped us to build a foundation of trust and communication that will have lifelong value for us.

Friday was our anniversary and it was the first in a very long time that I felt like we were actually celebrating. Thank you SO much for the part you’ve played in making this happen.

Former Couple Client Couples Counseling

Thank you for being a very calming, thoughtful influence. I have seen counselors a couple times in the past but I never really connected or thought it did much for me. You, on the other hand, actually make me feel better when I leave! Thank you for being there for me during a tough time. Venting, crying and talking this through I know is helping me. For whatever reason, I just seem to innately know that you are excellent at your job – and lucky me, I happened to find you.

Former Couple Client Couples Counseling

Marriage therapy is the greatest thing that’s ever happened to our marriage and our family. It has given us the tools we needed to have the healthiest relationship we’ve ever had, which is a gift we share daily with our children.

Thank you for everything! Dr. Stanford you truly saved my life and helped me through some hard times.

Former Individual Client Individual Counseling

Dr. Stanford is a uniquely talented therapist and is extremely professional. His principal strength is his ability to really listen. He makes poignant connections with the information I’ve shared, which allows me to see a bigger picture and recognize my patterns. He also has a natural ability to see further into my developmental path, but he patiently allows me to walk myself through changes and personal transformation. Dr. Stanford is also action-oriented. He regularly suggests ‘homework’ I can do between sessions which helps me think through the things we discuss. This method of continuous work keeps things moving forward and enables me to more comfortably make major life decisions and gracefully transition through significant changes occurring in my life. I have grown exponentially since working with Dr. Stanford, and I am extremely grateful to be in his care.
