Our Vision

To provide top-quality, comprehensive mental health services that respect and meet the needs of children, adults and families. We strive to enhance the bond and attachment between all relationships. Our mission is to enhance the every day lives of human beings who may be suffering from relationship or mental health challenges.

Helping people to change, one person at a time

Being unable to understand or control our thoughts and feelings often leads us and our loved ones into difficult times. It may be time to speak to a professional who can help you with coping skills and truly listen to the issue at hand. Managing our emotions and addictions can be challenging. Choosing to enter therapy is a brave journey and the first step on the path to wellness.

“I highly recommend Dr. Mac as a therapist.  He has worked over several years with my teenage son.  We came to Dr. Mac for trauma, attachment, anger, and other adoption issues.  Dr. Mac uses EMDR therapy which is extremely effective in treating trauma.  There are very few therapists that are trained and excel at using this type of therapy.
Today, my son is happy, doing well in school, and has a job.  Thank you Dr. Mac!”

“Mac is one of the best therapists in Tampa Bay area. Great listener.”

“Mac’s teaching and coaching has been a great help in my life in all aspects: career, relationships, and as a father. I was recommended to him by a friend after visiting a half dozen therapists that weren’t really helping; they just weren’t supportive.
I’ve been seeing Mac for over 5 years and no matter where I end up I will always seek him out for help and guidance. At one point I was living in Seattle and would still receive his care over skype. He is always available!
Highly recommend Mac!”

“Mr. Treadway has been the only therapist that was able to help me with my PTSD. I suffered for years and now I am able to live a normal and happy life.”

“Ms. Batra helped me with my addictions. I never knew that my childhood trauma was a reason that I turned to substances. She got me to face my repressed emotions and today I am sober and holding a full-time job.”

“Ms. Theophin-Michael helped make our adoptive family feel as though we have been together from day one!”
