A Note from Jan
Founder of Doorways 

When we talk about mental health, most of the conversation centers on disease and disorders and raising awareness about these conditions. But there is another side to mental health, one that is often neglected in our discussions and in the media - mental health wellness.


We get checkups with our medical providers and keep up to date with our vaccinations in an effort to maintain our physical health, but the majority of us only begin looking after our mental health once something goes wrong. The state of our mental health influences how we see ourselves, how we see others, how we cope with challenging situations, and how well we manage the stress in our lives.

P.S. We are offering free 15 minute parent consultations through the end of December. This is a great opportunity to speak to a therapist about your teen's or young adult's particular issues.

Doorways has a new Program Director, Dr. David Wall, PhD, Psychologist. 


Dr Wall will be starting at Doorways November 17th, and comes to us with over 20 years experience working with Eating Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, and OCD. We are so excited to have him join our staff, for the expert leadership he will provide to us and for the excellent care he will offer to kids, young adults and families at Doorways. During this month of Thanksgiving, we are very grateful for the addition of this expert professional to our team!
