About Us

Our Mission

“Emboldening individuals to improve their social, emotional, psychological, and behavioral functioning through multifaceted evaluation and intervention.”

Teaching Site Statement:

Atlas BHW is a teaching site, indicating that we train practicum students and interns. Much like medical residents in hospitals, they learn by working with actual clients, conducting therapy as well as psychological testing. Their work is closely supervised by licensed clinicians. All trainees are doctoral students who have already obtained their Master's degree in psychology. There is a possibility that you may be assigned to an intern. If you do not feel comfortable working with a student and insist on working with one of the licensed clinicians directly, please let us know, and we will try to accommodate you.
