Our Services

Our services are offered on an individual, parental referral, and school district/county basis.

Our main focus is to assist our clients with plausible behavioral solutions. Schedule a confidential 30-minute complimentary consultation with a licensed professional and let us assist with your mental health and behavioral needs.


Are you an adolescent or adult experiencing difficulty managing your mood? Have you had a hard time concentrating or achieving daily functional tasks?

LTS can match you with a qualified therapist to assist with mental health concerns. Anxiety, depression, mood and emotional dysregulation, or trauma related symptoms are some of our specialized areas.

Through the techniques of behavioral, cognitive- behavior, family system, interpersonal, psychoanalytic, and solution focused therapies, our professionals are ready to assist you with problem-solving for a healthier emotional, psychological, and social well-being.


Licensed to Solve believes in empowering parents to recognize, comprehend, and appropriately respond to their child’s social-emotional needs. Are you concerned about your child’s resilience, problem-solving, coping ability and adaption?

Professionals provide structural interviews, educational records review, appropriate assessment, if necessary, and counseling treatment plans.
