Family Therapy

We are passionate about strengthening the emotional health of families. We assist you, the client, by encouraging the involvement of your family to participate in your treatment interventions. One of the primary goals in family therapy is to assist you and your family members in maintaining balance within the family unit by defining the roles and responsibilities of family members. We assist you and your family members with practical approaches to addressing the presenting problems. Most importantly, we assist you and your family members with the tools needed to enhance the quality of life for each family member.

We are also committed to assisting families in healing from circumstances of separation and divorce and equally passionate about strengthening the foundations of blended families. Our treatment progress is measured by reducing the frequency, intensity and duration of problems experienced within the family. Each family member’s strengths are incorporated into interventions to promote successful outcomes. The interventions developed with families ultimately increase the emotional health of the family. If you feel that your family can benefit from participating in your counseling sessions, we welcome their participation.

Couples Counseling

We specialize in relationship and couples counseling. Our initial goal is to assist individuals in assessing the underlying causes of their relationship challenges.

Our approach to couples counseling is to assist couples in mastering the art of effective communication and active listening skills. We assist couples in exploring the strengths and opportunities that exist within their relationships. Our goal is to aid couples in the process of strengthening their relationships while negotiating how their unique attributes can complement their desires to master obstacles presented in their relationships. To achieve this, we customize interventions that are client driven and designed to enhance cohesiveness between couples. Our aim is to equip couples with the tools to successfully address the underlining causes of relationship concerns.

We collaborate with couples to develop goals that address presenting problems stemming from core issues. Interventions recommended to couples consist of practical exercises that are performed outside of the session and designed to aid couples in their efforts to communicate more effectively. The aim is to assist couples in sustaining strengths and resolving conflicts in a manner that satisfies the desired goals of both partners.
