At Westfield Mental Health Specialists we design treatment according to individual factors

We see connection.

What do you see?

Our logo is based on the psychological principle of the Gestalt theory of perception. Gestalt occurs when you view the whole differently than the individual parts (which is also what we help you do during our work together).

One of the best-known examples of a gestalt is the image of facial profiles or a candlestick. We selected the profile of two people seeing eye-to-eye because we believe collaboration is key to the therapeutic relationship.
