Maya is an African Grey Parrot. She is incredibly intelligent and social. Some would say she keeps our office running. She has a remarkable ability to copy human speech and that's just one of the many things that make her special. She is known for her affectionate nature and her ability to bond deeply with others. Occasionally she has been caught trying to order pizza by phone and has successfully ordered a batch of bird toys from Amazon. So if you see her with a phone please let us know!

Maya, The Parrot

Letter sent in

Dear Shaun and the Crane Center staff in its entirety,

The primary care doctor recommended some supplements that weren't already in my regimen towards taking care of my physical health. And Shaun, doing what Shaun does best, being Shaun, held space for me with knowledge and first hand experience and empathy. His wisdom allowed me to simply go home, with a prescription to understand that my thoughts did not have to control me, topped off with a suggestion of going to the beach."

Google Review

Highly recommend The Crane Center.

Great staff! My young adult son who has Schizophrenia and is on the Spectrum is being treated by Nicole Miller. She is a blessing to us. My son came to her very sick, his previous psychiatrist didn’t help him. My son is starting to feel better with the help from Nicole. She is knowledgeable about the brain and the medications that work together. She is caring and understanding. She is always a text, phone call or a email away. She always returns my messages promptly. I am grateful I had made an appointment at The Crane Center. They saved my son.

We have received excellent, compassionate care for two of our children

Dr. Goldberg is truly one of a kind - a thoughtful practitioner with a heart of gold. The others we've seen - Dee, Shaun, and Julie - are equally caring, and their team approach has helped our family grow in beautiful ways. Cannot say enough good things!!
