THERAPY BUILT TO SUIT YOU
There are various approaches to psychological therapy. While individual needs often require a specific style or method, the best predictor of successful therapeutic outcomes is the alliance established between you and your therapist. Our objective is to form a supportive and encouraging relationship with you. Through this partnership, we collaboratively examine what kind of treatment would be best for you.
Therapeutic treatment modalities include cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), psychodynamic therapy, insight-oriented therapy, humanistic therapy, solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT), positive psychology, personal evaluation and optimal functioning, behavior therapy, family therapy, behavioral parent training (BPT), couples counseling, and divorce mediation.
You and your professional will collaboratively determine the treatment approach most suitable for you.
THERAPY FOR INDIVIDUALS
Individual therapy (sometimes called “psychotherapy” or “counseling”) is a process through which clients work one-on-one with a trained therapist—in a safe, caring, and confidential environment—to explore their feelings, beliefs, or behaviors, work through challenging or influential memories, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change.
People seek therapy for a wide variety of reasons, from coping with major life challenges or childhood trauma, to dealing with depression or anxiety, to simply desiring personal growth and greater self-knowledge. A client and therapist may work together for as few as five or six sessions or as long as several years, depending on the client’s unique needs and personal goals for therapy.
Therapy For Couples
Couples therapy can be an important resource for partners who have concerns about the state of their relationship at any phase of life. Many couples may feel stuck in unhealthy patterns or destructive behaviors that negatively impact their relationship. These challenges can alter the relationship and its prognosis to the extent that one (or both) partner(s) may question whether their relationship can withstand the test of their struggles. Working with a therapist can help facilitate meaningful and productive communication patterns. This understanding can foster individuality within the context of the relationship and facilitate healing from the challenges experienced. In turn, each individual in the partnership can better understand themselves and each other in order to work toward desired change.
THERAPY FOR FAMILIES
We all start this life with a family. This family that we acquire when we are born influences every aspect of our lives, from our first moments to our last. Our family affects who we are and who we become, both for the better and for worse. We learn our vocabulary, our habits, our customs and rituals, and how to view and observe the world around us.
We also learn how to love, and how to interact with others from these first important relationships. If we are born into a healthy family with healthy relationships, we are likely to learn how to maintain healthy relationships. If we are born into a dysfunctional family that struggles to connect, we may also struggle to connect with others.
While it is certainly unlucky to be born into a dysfunctional family, it’s not an unchangeable situation. Nearly all families deal with some sort of dysfunction at one time or another, yet most families retain or regain a sense of wholeness and happiness.
Family therapy is necessary to either address family pain and heal a family’s wounds, or to help a family achieve the goals and aspirations they desire as an emotional unit. Family therapy offers families a way to achieve their goals.
