Psychotherapy Services for children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families

Psychotherapy can help. It teaches truly effective ways to deal with common, everyday situations as well as more entrenched patterns of living.

We believe that all feelings are part of being human. We help you to understand your feelings. We help you to get through difficult situations and to connect with your inner wisdom so you can make healthy choices.

Many of the problems people face involve relationships. Improving these relationships is a mainstay of counseling.

There are over a thousand different psychotherapy techniques, some being minor variations, while others are based on very different conceptions of psychology, ethics (how to behave professionally), or techniques. Most involve one-to-one sessions, between the client and therapist, but some are conducted with groups, including families.


Couples Therapy

Are you looking for help to improve your relationship with your partner? We specialize in couples therapy.

We have years of experience working with couples and marriages using scientific approaches such as the Gottman Method for couples therapy, Emotional Focus Therapy of Dr. Sue Johnson, Relational Therapy of Terry Real, and Imago Therapy of Dr. Harville Hendrix.

    Family Therapy

    Family therapy, also referred to family systems therapy, and family counseling, is a branch of psychotherapy that works with families and couples in intimate relationships to nuture change and development. It tends to view change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members.

    The different schools of family therapy have in common a belief that, regardless of the origin of the problem, and regardless of whether the clients consider it an “individual” or “family” issue, involving families in solutions often benefits clients. This involvement of families is commonly accomplished by their direct participation in the therapy session. The skills of the family therapist thus include the ability to influence conversations in a way that catalyses the strengths, wisdom, and support of the wider system.


    Individual Psychotherapy

    Psychotherapists may be mental health professionals such as psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, marriage and family therapists, or professional counselors.

    Psychotherapy (psychological therapy or talking therapy) is the use of psychological methods, particularly when based on regular personal interaction with adults, to help a person change behavior and overcome problems in desired ways. Psychotherapy aims to improve an individual’s well-being and mental health, to resolve or mitigate troublesome behaviors, beliefs, compulsions, thoughts, or emotions, and to improve relationships and social skills. There is also a range of psychotherapies designed for children and adolescents, which typically involve play, such as sandplay. Certain psychotherapies are considered evidence-based for treating some diagnosed mental disorders. Others have been criticized as pseudoscience.
