We Believe Patients Have the Right to Heal.

At Beach Therapy, we make getting the help and support you need to heal from mental health medical issues possible. Our clinicians specialize in evidence-based treatments like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to address a variety of mental health diagnoses. As a smaller private practice, we focus on making our psychotherapy services more professional, personalized, and patient-centered.

Choose Your Treatment Path

Using the power of research and science, our clinicians perform evidence-based methods to gather data on how effective a treatment is in therapy.
