We are here to help you discover and remove what barriers are in the way of you living the life you want to have and the person you wish to be.

Areas of Specialization

Chronic Illness

Chromic illnesses create a variety of psychological stressors, from financial issues to being able to function in daily living and adjust to new challenges.  Therapy focuses on addressing  needs,  strengths and helping to adapt in new ways to challenges.

Depression, Anxiety & Other Issues

We provide many different types of psychotherapy to assist you with understanding and managing or overcoming depression or anxiety. Some forms of therapy are focused on skill building and are designed to give you ways to manage your symptoms so that they do not interfere with your ambitions in life. Other types of therapy are designed to assist you in exploring the underlying issues or beliefs that trigger your moods and anxiety.  No one therapy is right for everyone and it is our responsibility to offer you different choices in treatment so that you can decide what is the best path of treatment for you. 

Many people turn to the use of drugs and or alcohol because they do not have the coping skills needed to address the stressors they encounter in life.  We work in individual and group therapy to identify patterns and triggers to use, and develop new skills to adapt to stress and challenges.

Relational Dynamics

Relational Dynamics is a non-linear theory of relationships that explores how to create cooperation between individuals, groups and nations. It is based from psychodynamic, psychosocial, humanistic and trauma theory and has been applied to psychotherapy, personality theory, healthcare, education, housing, art and architecture, evolutionary biology and behavioral economics.  It is integrated into Dr Bathory's therapy and also often used in helping find solutions to complex problems like national healthcare, and he has a multitude of scholarly articles published on Relational Dynamics with applications in areas such as psychology, trauma, personality, decision making, behavioral economics, healthcare, education, art, monuments and architecture..
