CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

  • I am so thankful for Karen Sacks. My son was experiencing some frustrations and stress and I took him to see Karen Sacks. Her combination of caring and compassion with structure and discipline provided a safe space for him to talk through and begin to understand his emotions and their effects on him. He loved going to see her and truly benefited from her play therapy. I saw a huge difference in his behavior and his ability to manage anger and fear. I highly recommend her!!!

WELCOME COMPANY

CRS was originally two separate companies, Center for Individual and Group Counselling which focused on counselling men, women, teens, children and whole families, and Center for Rational Solutions which focused on alternative dispute resolution to provide options to those going through divorce. These two companies combined to provide one location for all of these services where those going through challenges and transitions can find support and guidance for all of their needs.

CRS is one of the few multidisciplinary centers of its kind as we have a network of collaborative attorneys, mediators, therapists, mental health facilitators, alternative practitioners, financial professionals and more, all working in collaboration to provide clarity, education and support. We believe whether it be collaborative, mediation, divorce without an attorney, parent coordination, or any family issue, the worst plan you make for your situation is always better than the best plan that would otherwise be created by a judge who does not know you.
