Couples Therapy

Intimate, trusting, and sexual relationships between consenting adults can create the foundation for healing and growth that most of us need. However, couples often stumble on obstacles that keep them from receiving that experience. Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFCT)  will equip couples with tools that become a part of the fabric of their relationship. Of these couples, 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery and approximately 90% show significant improvements from this intervention. These distressed couples include partners suffering from disorders such as depression, post-traumatic stress disorders, and chronic illness.

This model will facilitate the process of:

  • Trust
  • Healthy productive communication
  • Healing relationships
  • Exploring sexual issues
  • Strengthening your bond
  • Preparation for marriage in pre-marital counseling

Family Therapy

Not all families look alike or have the same make-up. No matter what their shape, they are the beginning of our emotional life. Family therapy can help children and families grow into caring, confident, and emotionally equipped adults. Attachment Focused Parenting is a model used to:

  • Help deepen security within family relationships
  • Empower parents of all different styles
  • Empower children to be emotionally healthy and understand loving and appropriate intimate relationships
  • Parenting guided feelings of love and affection through empathy, understanding and patience
  • Families can learn to be there for each other during times of high emotions when we are sad, angry or scared.
  • Being emotionally present during those times is when it really counts.

Individual Therapy

Through the security of our therapeutic relationship, you can learn to experience and manage emotions in a way that feels peaceful and empowering. You will be able to discern how you feel about yourself and give the type of love, comfort and care you expect to receive from others in a nonjudgmental and non-pathologizing environment. Individual therapy can help you:

  • Create space for healing from your depression, anxiety and grief
  • Heal from previous relationships
  • Realize and achieve your potential
  • Respectfully challenge your belief systems
  • Manage your emotions and empower yourself

Youth Therapy

When children experience traumatic events such as bullying or sexual abuse, domestic violence, taking on more responsibility than age-appropriate, as well as things like divorce, moving from an area where they leave all their extended family and close friends and death of a close friend or family; they may experience emotions or engage in behaviors that interfere with their ability to thrive. These incidents are looked at as triggers and risk factors for children, especially as they are going through life’s developmental stages, which are often challenging. Youth therapy may focus on:

  • Conflicts with peers and family conflicts
  • Disputes regarding grades and studying
  • Sexuality and gender identification
  • Peer relationships
  • Low self-image
  • Conflicting emotions
  • Dating violence
