Our Approach

We are dedicated to helping you improve the quality of your life. Whether you have relationship issues, anxiety, depression, addiction, insomnia or just plain old-fashioned stress, we want to help you get back on track. Our approach is practical, focused and engaged. The aim is to help you get what you need - learning needed skills, developing new behaviors, challenging old beliefs, moving through a difficult life transition or processing painful feelings. There are many options to meet your needs, ranging from a single, one-time consultation, to problem solving and behavioral modification to more intensive insight-oriented psychotherapy. After treatment has ended, you may return at any time, or you may opt to return for "booster" sessions on an as-needed basis.

For psychotherapy (sometimes called talk therapy or counseling), Dr. Nancy Akalin is a licensed clinical psychologist with almost two decades of experience diagnosing and treating the full sprectrum of psychiatric disorders as well as helping people manage and adapt to life problems. She has special expertise in therapy for couples, cognitive-behavioral treatments for depression, and exposure and response prevention for anxiety. Dr. Akalin has a special knack for helping individuals whose success in life is hindered by procrastination, disorganization, or problems managing finances. She particularly enjoys helping people improve their self-esteem, break through fears, develop more satisfying relationships, and move forward with their lives.

For patients who may benefit from medications, Dr. Murat Akalin is a board certified psychiatrist and family physician who can provide a complete psychiatric evaluation which takes into account your medical conditions, discuss the benefits and risks of psychiatric medications, and prescribe one if it is right for you. He has expertise in and enjoys working with people with addictions. He also has a special interest in helping people with bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder and dementia. Dr. Akalin can also provide psychotherapy in addition to managing your medication.
