"My life was in shambles. My childhood had been spent in a really dysfunctional family. I was physically and emotionally abused by my parents. In adulthood, I proved to be the failure I had always been told I was. I really don't know what I would have done without the help of Dr. Alden. She saved my life."

DID YOU KNOW?
• Data from the AMA shows that psychotherapy/counseling increases life satisfaction and job performance. Further, it reduces overall use of medical services!
• Psychotherapy/counseling is relatively inexpensive. For over three decades, the cost of our services has remained at 3-4 cents of each healthcare dollar spent.
• We actually cut the many ‘costs’ to individuals, families, and society when we deal with the peoples’ hurts – which in turn means increased worker productivity, less violence, and fewer accidents.
• When we lessen psychological and emotional pain, we become healthier, happier, and more successful in life – we experience joy in living!
