Individual Therapy helps adults increase
their self-awareness, clarify their priorities and values, discover
their passions and what gives them purpose, resolve internal conflicts,
release emotional blocks from the past, make important life decisions,
and become more powerful and fulfilled in life. We all find
ourselves at personal crossroads at times, faced with the option of
living the same (and getting the same result) or choosing something
better. We only work with adults who choose the “better” road –
who want to grow, make responsible life decisions, resolve psychological
symptoms, transform internal blocks, and powerfully create a life they
love. We provide an integrated approach that draws from
cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, humanistic, systemic,
solution-oriented, brief, narrative, and experiential therapy forms.
Therapy allows you to have a distinctive relationship in your life with
someone who will give you skillful perceptions, therapeutic tools,
strategic action plans, validation and support, a safe place to truly be
yourself, and a person committed to your becoming who you want to be.
Therapy helps adolescents develop and
strengthen their identity, clarify personal goals, resolve internal
conflicts, develop prosocial skills to succeed in the real world, and
learn to love and care about themselves, relationships, and how they
want to live their lives. Therapy with adolescents generally
involves a combination of Individual and Family sessions.
Individual sessions allow adolescents to talk freely about personal
concerns with an unbiased adult who knows how to listen and allow teens
to explore important issues and arrive at their own responsible choices.
Family sessions promote acknowledgment and respect, increase cooperation
and accountability, teach ways to communicate effectively and solve
problems, and strengthen or restore closeness in the family.
CO-PARENTING (for Divorced Parents)
For divorced parents with
children, Co-Parenting sessions are available in a brief-therapy model
to rapidly develop workable strategies to minimize parental conflicts
and help you and your children adjust to living in two homes. This
can be provided before or after physical separation, as well as when new
issues come up in the future. The number one factor in how well
children adjust after their parents’ divorce is the level of parental
conflict, hostility, and tension…whether it’s spoken or not. Not
surprisingly, two of the most common frustrations we hear children of
divorce voice is that they feel “caught in the middle” and wish their
parents would get along better. An investment in a limited number
of focused co-parenting sessions helps everyone in
the family. If you are a divorced parent, let us help.
Family Therapy helps families develop
greater respect, togetherness, cooperation, and harmony. We help
families identify their communication styles, discover what’s at the
source of reoccurring conflicts, explore ways to really acknowledge and
understand one another, and develop effective systems for solving
problems. Lastly, because we believe family relationships are just
about the most important thing in life, we challenge families to develop
“Family Lifestyles” that strengthen relational bonds, create
personalized rituals that will be remembered for a lifetime, and make
“Family” a source of love, comfort, support, and pride.
