Liberation ¤ Empowerment ¤ Healing

Welcome to the Critical Therapy Center

The Critical Therapy Center (CTC) provides psychotherapy to individuals, couples, and groups, as well as consulting services and training to non-profit and for-profit organizations and businesses.

Critical therapy offers a unique approach to helping people achieve clarity and resolution with respect to life transitions and relationships, opening up new possibilities for action and self-understanding. We pay special attention to how class, race, gender, and religion influence one’s identity.

Our goal is empowerment, liberation and healing.

Training, Clinical Supervision & Keynote Speakers

CTC offers comprehensive trainings on a variety of topics including clinical, organizational, managerial and leadership related topics.  We tailor our trainings for each company, business or non-profit agency, based on individual needs. We also offer follow-up supervision to assess how materials were integrated and incorporated within the organization by staff.

We offer clinical supervision to practicing psychotherapists. CTC believes that the formation of a critical therapist involves much more than technical teachings or an intellectual process of learning; it also implies the passage through an experience of personal analysis using critical therapy that provokes a subjective transformation.

We also provide keynote expert speakers on a variety of topics.  Our experts are inspiring, motivational and educational.  CTC works with your organization to determine the best fit for your needs.
