How do I know if I need Help?

We all experience periods of stress, grief, anxiety, and depression. However, when those feelings are prolonged, intense, and nothing you do seems to help, it might be time to see a professional. Other indicators that you or a family member might benefit from therapeutic services include:

  • Trouble focusing in school or work or a decrease in work or school performance
  • Loss of interest in activities or social connections that you previously enjoyed
  • Problems in relationships with others or friendships
  • Physical health problems resulting from stress or problems with eating, sleeping, or toileting (in children)
  • Using negative things to cope with the emotions such as substance or self-harm
  • Behavior outbursts or aggression in children
  • Not being able to get a thought out of your mind or reliving a traumatic moment over and over

There are many other reasons to seek professional help. Please call our office at 563-445-0557 in Davenport or 563-263-0067 in Muscatine for more information or to schedule an appointment. If you or a loved one are feeling suicidal, please call 911 or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, 1-800-273-TALK (8255).


What Does it Cost?

We provide quality services to all members of the Quad City area regardless of race, gender, ethnicity or social economic status. We accept most insurance, private pay, Title XIX Iowa (Medicaid), Medicare, and have a sliding fee scale that is funded through United Way.


What Happens When I Call?

Phone callers will speak with an intake specialist who will need to obtain information about the prospective client, such as: name, address, phone number, and if you have insurance, the ID number. A person will also be asked what their reason for seeking help is and the intake specialist will pair you up with the best possible therapist to meet the prospective client's needs. To begin the process today, please contact our staff at (563) 445-0557 in Davenport or 563-263-0667 in Muscatine to make an appointment.
