See What They Have To Say...

I was very pleased with the relationship that I developed with my therapist.  She was very helpful to me while seeing her and will use her again if ever needed.

Very nice place! My husband and I went to The Calli Institute this week and I was so impressed with everything!  The staff at the front desk is very polite and informative and our therapist, Amanda is incredible!  The atmosphere is very different than any other counseling place we have been and it makes a huge difference.  We plan to return weekly!
- Shauna
I am amazed at how well the staff and nurse practitioner work to help me get my meds and appointments met at a proper and efficient time!
- Sam
I have been to a bunch of different therapists, but this place is by far the BEST!  It is so comfortable, it is like being in someone’s home!  The staff is very respectful and my therapist, Nicole, is excellent!  I am so happy I found her!

I have been very happy with my care at Calli and felt very comfortable there.  I haven’t been there in a few months, but plan on scheduling an appointment soon.  Thank you for your exceptional care and great facility.

We would not hesitate to recommend Calli.  My wife and I felt very comfortable from the very first call to Calli Institute.  The environment is warm and our therapist was very kind and professional.

Group Therapy

One of the Calli Institute’s core values is education because we believe that knowledge is empowering. Therefore, we take every opportunity to teach you about your diagnosis, treatment and self-care. One modality we use is group therapy or a seminar format to provide education and support.

Groups are offered periodically throughout the year, which address a number of different issues. Some of the unique advantagegroup.jpegs of group therapy include opportunities to learn about a variety of topics that relate to mental health and wellness and to connect with others dealing with similar life challenges. Group therapy provides a safe environment to both give and receive support from others while practicing new skills and new ways of looking at a problem. Some of the most powerful work we do happens in group settings.
