Individual Therapy

What exactly is therapy? Individual therapy is a time when you can come together with one of our empathetic and highly skilled clinicians, in a safe space, to learn about the barriers holding you back. Maybe you need direct feedback about why you may be engaging in certain relationships or behaviors and how to make changes that lead to a more fulfilled and healthy life? You might think of your therapist as your confidant. The person who will listen from a non-judgmental place, hold your information confidential, and ask you key questions to help guide you along your path.

Couples Therapy

Often couples come to therapy when they have found themselves locked into certain relational patterns that continually lead to arguments, loss of connection, or living like roommates instead of a romantic couple. Our therapists help couples identify and alter these patterns, often with insight into how they developed in the first place. The therapist might also explore the connection between these patterns and each partner’s experience of early formative relationships. We work with couples to address a variety of goals or challenges, some of which might include:
  • Frequent fighting and arguing
  • Pre-marital counseling
  • Disconnection and isolation
  • Sexual problems
  • Parenting
  • Managing a separation or divorce
  • Recovering from affairs
  • Negotiating new life circumstances, such as marriage, childbirth, fertility issues, “empty nest”, blended families, and major financial changes

Teen Therapy

Navigating adolescence is tricky. And then we add social media and the digital age and it gets even trickier. Naturally teenagers are going through so many changes in their mind and body, and this becomes confusing and overwhelming. Teenagers almost never feel as though their parent understands, yet they crave a space where they can be understood (regardless how much the parent may actually understand!). This is where therapy for teens can be a lifesaver. A therapist can provide a space where the teen can come and explore some of the challenges they are facing. They can gain tools to help with improving their mood and their social skills. The therapist is not there to judge, but to help your teen feel empowered as they transition into adulthood.

Emerging and Young Adults

The transition to adulthood and learning how “to adult” is hard! Some of the challenges you may face during this time are:
  • Learning to be fully independent
  • Discovering your worldview and values
  • Exploring career options and professional identity
  • Determining what you’d like your relationships to look like 

Parenting Support

Raising kids can be just plain hard. You may not understand why your child makes certain choices or behaves in the ways they do. Your childhood may have been different and you may simply not relate to who your child is or what they are experiencing. Our therapists can help with the following:
  • Becoming a new parent
  • Postpartum depression 
  • Single-parenting
  • Maintaining your romantic relationships
  • Balancing work and family life
  • Parent-child conflict
  • Empty nesting

Group Therapy

You may not feel as though working one-on-one with a therapist is right for you, or you may desire something in addition to your current individual therapy. You may desire support and/or connection with others who are struggling with something similar to you, somewhere to feel understood and not alone. Group therapy is a place where you can find this support and familiarity. It can also be a place to challenge you to work through issues you may not find you are able to explore without the interaction of others. In a group, you will be with a small number of other people that are experiencing some issue similar to you. You will be able to discuss your own challenges while gaining feedback and support from both other group members as well as the therapist facilitating the group. Some groups may be more skill based and provide more education around how to navigate certain life challenges. The therapist facilitator will help the group remain safe and productive as well as keep the group moving forward.
