Individual Therapy is a collaborative investment between you and your therapist to help you identify, navigate, and overcome what may be troubling you, or interfering with your ability to thrive.
Each of our therapists incorporate a person-centered, mindfulness-based approach to helping clients bring focused awareness into the present. Whether you are struggling from past traumas, relationships, or long-term mental/emotional challenges, or you are feeling anxious, fearful, ambivalent, etc. about your future, we must first start from the present.
A healthy and reliable relationship between client and therapist is crucial; the foundation upon which successful therapy is built. We take the time to know you as a person, and align with you on your journey toward fulfilling your therapeutic needs.
We offer individual therapy for children, adolescents, and adults. Each of our clinicians has specialized training and experience with varying age-groups. You may learn more by visiting our providers page.
Family Consultations are typically offered as a supplement to individual therapy for current clients. So much of the growth in therapy has an impact on, and is impacted by, the people in our close circles; whether parents, children, siblings, or partners. This is why we offer consultations to enhance the growth of our clients, when deemed appropriate by the client and clinician.
We take great care to preserve the safety and therapeutic relationship of our clients. If someone joins you for a session, the alignment between client and clinician, as well as boundaries around communication and therapeutic alliance, are discussed and agreed upon prior to scheduling a family consultation.
For child and adolescent clients, these family consultations can be incredibly helpful, as growth of young people is often a collaborative effort with parents/caregivers. We encourage parents to be involved with their children's therapy, and also ask that the child/adolescent is allowed a degree of space and privacy to build trust and rapport with their therapist. If your child believes his/her therapist will repeat everything to their parents, there is often a barrier to the therapeutic relationship, thereby barriers to the success of therapy.
Relationship and Couples Therapy offers a safe space for vulnerability, curiosity, communication, and connection. Partners find their way to couples therapy for many reasons. Whether you're experiencing challenges in communication, feeling disconnected, missing intimacy, feeling betrayed, wanting to work on your sex life, or simply wanting to improve your relationship in some way, this type of therapy can be a helpful and effective space to come together with an unbiased, well-trained therapist to help you navigate whatever is getting in the way of the relationship you want.
One common misunderstanding about couples therapy is that a relationship "isn't bad enough" for this level of intervention. You may want to consider that things don't have to be bad before getting better. Think of a couples therapist as a guide or consultant who makes the effort to know you collectively, as well as each individual who makes the couple. They assists you in making adjustments toward building (or rebuilding) the relationship you both want.
Though not the focus of therapy, sexuality often plays a major role in healthy relationships. Our couples therapist is specially trained to incorporate this component into your work, if you decide it's appropriate. Many times, we are taught to feel ashamed or dismissive of sex and sexuality. Instead, we encourage you to embrace this important part of you to deepen your connection with you partner.
