While other companies continue to move toward a catch-all service model, offering every conceivable service as a marketing strategy, we have remained loyal to a simple principle, which is a holistic approach to serving individuals. In doing so, we remain cognizant that everyone is part of a larger system. When there is a breakdown in one of those systems, whether it is the job, family, or community system, individuals are affected in a myriad of ways.
At Oceanside Counseling & Therapy, our approach encompasses maintaining an awareness of the impact of these systems on individual functioning as we develop an individualized treatment plan. The goal of our comprehensive approach is to establish a serene and harmonious balance between the individual and the system(s) within which he or she functions.
We have a team of highly skilled professionals on both national and international levels consisting of physicians and licensed mental health experts. These individuals come with a wealth of experience to meet the needs of our customers.
