Individual, Couples, & Family Therapy
First and foremost, Dr. DeSantis offers therapy to individuals, couples, and families who are in need of therapy services.

At the center of our approach is a caring relationship between Dr. DeSantis and her patients.
Clinical Assessment & Evaluation
Clinical assessment is a method of diagnosing, and planning treatment for a patient that involves careful evaluation, in order to figure out the root of a problem. Dr. DeSantis may use the interpretation of standardized tests, as well as behavioral observations, and clinical interviews, for diagnostic assessment grounded in science-based theory, research, and practice.
Dr. DeSantis offers a variety of different support groups for various symptoms. Support groups are helpful when it comes to building self-esteem, confidence, social skills, coping skills, a sense of connection to others, and hope. The group environment is a safe, positive space to listen and/or join the conversation, leading to personal growth and improved well-being. Some of our groups include:
Anxiety & Depression
Telemental Health Services
Online therapy, or telemental health, is a growing field thanks to the advancement and adaptation of technology and access. Telemental health offers psychologists a tremendous opportunity to care for people who, for a variety of reasons, are unable to meet face to face with a practitioner. It is a convenient option for those who would have difficulty finding time to accommodate sessions due to other obligations such as parenting, live in remote areas, or who work unconventional hours. Psychological counseling and support are provided via the internet through video conferencing, online chat, or phone calls.
It is important to know that you don’t have to face anything alone. Dr. DeSantis has been an approved supervisor of the American Association of Marriage & Family Therapy (AAMFT) since 2015, and can apply her knowledge to communicate with other professionals who work in psychological services, health care, education, social service agencies, legal systems, and more.

Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT)
Animal Assisted Therapy, also known as pet therapy, is a form of therapy that utilizes dogs and other animals to assist people coping with health problems including anxiety, depression, and stress. Visiting with a certified therapy pet in an office setting may provide patients and their families with comfort, relief, and a distraction from emotional or physical pain, discomfort, or stress.
AAT has been shown to reduce stress, improve mood and energy levels, and decrease perceived pain and anxiety. It may also provide a sense of companionship that combats feelings of isolation. For more information, please click the button below to contact Dr. DeSantis today!
