We strive to focus on having a genuine and interested relationship or “alliance” with each person. Each individual can expect to be treated with respect, understanding, and empathy. Your therapist will seek to work with you to develop a clear treatment plan within the first few visits. You can expect to work on understanding the relationship between your thoughts, emotions, and interpersonal approaches. Our objective is to help you develop and enhance the skills needed to cope more effectively with your concerns and begin to have a more fulfilling and hopeful approach to life. All of our therapists see individuals and we use a variety of empirically supported therapeutic approaches (CBT, ACT, DBT, EFT, etc.).
Child & Adolescent Therapy
Child therapy is a form of treatment where the therapist works closely with a child and caregiver(s) to improve the mental, emotional, and social health of the child. Children and parents can expect to receive warm and transparent treatment. Each of our providers strive to teach, model, and strengthen healthy parent-child interactions.
We offer couples therapy for any stage of the relationship–relational distress, divorce contemplation, sexual issues, life transitions, infidelity, mental health issues, communication concerns, financial disagreements and parenting struggles. In couples therapy we work to understand and improve problematic interactions and relationship patterns in an empathetic and balanced way. Our goal is to help couples better understand themselves, their partners and their relationship, and help couples move forward in the ways they want to with confidence.
Couples therapy has been shown to improve outcomes in individual mental health, relationship satisfaction, and increase empathy and partners’ abilities to support each others.
Family therapy can strengthen relationships and promote individual well-being in the family context. Common reasons to seek family therapy include improving troubled or conflictual relationships, adjusting to transitions, addressing behavioral issues, improving connection and support, addressing abuse, mental health, special needs in the family, or dealing with stress related to illness, death, grief, separation/divorce, etc.
Family therapy can be very useful in promoting healing in individuals with mental illnesses, as healing is much more likely to occur when all relevant members of a patient’s family context are included in treatment. Through a combination of individual and joint sessions, depending on need, family therapy helps to create a safe environment at home for strong relationships to develop and mental health to flourish.
Group is a form of therapy where individuals can experience a safe place to connect, relate, learn, and change in an interpersonal environment. Group can be particularly helpful when mental health concerns interfere with relationships.
