Therapy Specialities

Family Therapy

For each family member at-risk, there is a larger family system in place. If the individual is treated while the family is not, the cycle of dysfunction may continue. Many concerns can be addressed through family therapy, including grief & loss, life adjustments, behavioral or school issues, conflict resolution, communication, and mental and physical illness.

Couples Therapy

The right time to come to couples counseling is – when you decide you want to improve your relationship. In couples therapy, the relationship is the client. The therapist consults with the couple to define the problems they want to address and identify desired treatment outcomes. The therapist will ask each partner about their history with and  without the other partner in the room. 

Teen counseling

Teens who may be experiencing maladaptive, unsafe and unhealthy coping, patterns of unstable relationships, impulsive and possibly risky behaviors, and emotional upheaval will benefit from this group by developing mindfulness, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and interpersonal effectiveness skills.
