In 2012 Shalom Center formed a Spanish language task force of national experts to help Shalom Center form a Spanish-language treatment option that would meet the needs of those whose first language is Spanish. Because of our commitment to treatment in one’s first language, Shalom Center offers:     

•  Assessment     

•  Psychiatric Services     

•  Individual Therapy     

•  Group Therapy     

•  Education


in the Spanish language, as well as English. The language of the heart becomes the language of the treatment at Shalom Center. Bilingual therapists offer a significant service to the Church of today.


“Be renewed in the spirit of your

minds, and put on the new nature.”

— Ephesians 4:23-24
