When we opened the doors to Arise,  the intention was to establish a practice that could offer the Wilmington community help with life's challenges from a team of highly-skilled and educated therapists.


Educated in a range of modern health philosophies and experienced in the treatment of a range of mental health concerns, individuals will receive the help they need from a professional team of women with extensive mental health training and education.
