Why Avise Group?


Avise Group, was founded by two innovators: one, with years of dealing with families, but without the constraints of formal psychoanalytical training and with years of research in understanding the benefits of approaching trauma from a non-traditional construct; the other an expert in non-clinical family caregiving focused on the essential/intricate role family dynamics plays in seeking truly meaningful outcomes. They, and their experts, have taken a total new look at trauma. They have sought unique perspectives and dynamic innovations that are safe but representing a significant departure from common convention. The founders recognize that a select group of traumas have responded to these new approached, but clearly understand it is not a “universal cure” all for every emotional trauma. We clearly recognize our strengths and respect our limitations. We are not “experimenting” but we do incorporate leading edge thinking that has been thoroughly vetted by our diverse group of professionals and represents state-of-the-art therapeutic approaches performed without medication. However, we must have clearance from medical practitioners to assure that in treating your trauma we are not complicating other pre-existing conditions. We believe that it is only through a totally integrated medical, mental health and wellness course of treatment can desired outcomes be achieved.

By integrating many specialists from western, eastern, and alternative medicine, we believe real healing can be achieved. Avise Group believes our ever-evolving innovative approach can succeed where others have failed.
