About Us


  • Are you tired of therapists and medical professionals only seeing and trying to fix your  or your child's symptoms?

  • Do you as a parent know intuitively that there is so much more to you or your child?

  • Are you as a parent frustrated by not knowing how to best support your child's needs?

Dr. Vanacore and her team take a dramatically different approach when working with children, teens, adults, and families!



Integrative Child & Family Psychology:

A Dramatically Different Approach

Empowerment & Growth for

Mind, Body, & Spirit

A Center for the whole family providing empowerment to support individuals and families as they evolve confidently, with strength, prepared for life's challenges, and resilient enough to soar!

We are dedicated to improving the quality of life for children, teens, young adults, and families. Utilizing a warm, engaging, and compassionate approach, we offer a unique holistic approach to psychological services---evaluations, interventions/therapy, and advocacy.


Contrary to most Psychologists who see "symptoms" and "issues" that are only "chin-up" (only affecting the person mentally or in the head), our philosophy is rooted in the scientific connection between mind, body, and spirit--The WHOLE person! The complex interplay between cognitive, behavioral, emotional, physical/nutritional, social, and spiritual factors is discovered such that the whole child can be revealed and can thrive. And instead of focusing on weaknesses, and sickness, we are focused instead on health and wellness and helping each individual and family unit become the best versions of themselves possible!


We are committed to helping our clients connect with their innate well-being and the many aspects of their authentic selves such that they can flourish in all aspects of their lives. By using strength-based, evidenced-based therapeutic models, children, teens, and young adults are empowered! And, the adults in their lives become empowered, too! Clients stop feeling sick, and instead learn how to feel well, even in the face of life's challenges.


Our genuinely caring and highly skilled team participates in ongoing continuing education initiatives such as workshops, lectures, and seminars in order to advance our training and keep up with the most recent developments in the field. In addition, our team meets regularly in collaboration to lend our particular areas of expertise to each individual who we serve. We consult regularly with other care providers (i.e. naturopathic physicians, learning specialists, speech and language pathologists, teachers, occupational therapists, physical therapists, nutritionists, pediatricians, psychiatrists) in order to best serve each client from a multidisciplinary perspective.
