Our clinical staff is multi-disciplinary, representing a variety of licenses and mental health backgrounds and a wide range of specializations. The Summit is an accredited affiliate of the Solihten Institute and, as such, believes that there is a close relationship of mind, body, spirit, and community. The Summit provides spiritually integrated services that honor the culture, values, and religious/spiritual preferences of our clients throughout the therapeutic process.

Our team includes professional marketing, development, and administrative staff. Our business office staff supports clinicians in scheduling and billing operations.
