Welcome to Paragon’s Counseling Services, a place where compassionate care and specialized expertise come together. Our outpatient counseling services are dedicated to meeting the unique needs of individuals with autism and related disorders, their family members, and caregivers. However, our commitment extends beyond ASD, as we also offer comprehensive counseling services for a range of diagnoses, including anxiety, depression, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and more.
