We established In Session Psych, as a husband and wife team, with the goal of providing a science-based approach to helping people navigate depression, anxiety, and addiction/recovery.
Our well-being is deeply tied into the quality and depth of our emotional connections with ourselves and others. We work with people to strengthen these connections.
Please let us know how we can support you.
– Sincerely, George & Faith

Addiction & Recovery Support
We use a combination of science-based models to help decrease the symptoms of addiction and support people in their recovery. We also link people to higher levels of care (residential treatment, intensive outpatient) or additional supports (group work, medication), when appropriate. Learn More
Being single is a great opportunity to prepare for being in the next relationship and to improve existing relationships with friends and family. We help people take those steps through tailored personality assessments, recommendations, and ongoing support. Learn More

Free Anxiety Management Classes
We are currently offering free anxiety management courses to help people navigate this time of stress.
I attended an online workshop offered by Anna Malles and found it extremely helpful. The workshop was on handling anxiety and, in light of all the turbulence at that time, was very relevant. Anna did a wonderful job explaining concepts in a caring yet informative manner and provided great practical steps to be taken in handling anxiety.
