Our owner, Jessica Cortez, began the private practice in conjunction with another clinic, ACS Assessment & Treatment Center, in Livingston County in 2012. She grew her practice, specializing solely with children and teens. When she got married, she expanded her practice closer to home, opening an office in Oakland County as well.
She continues to have the two locations and has been able to coordinate with physicians, psychiatrists, teachers, counselors, etc to continue building a book of referrals and connections for her families in treatment.
In 2018, Jessica began her long-term goal of expanding her practice to meet the needs of even more families in the area. She began hiring other licensed therapists who primarily work with children and adolescents in order to ensure the same type of focus of treatment.
Coordination is imperative for children and teens to improve their mental health juxtaposed to therapy. All of our team members work hard on speaking with parents, reaching out to school personnel, discussing plans with your pediatrician.
