Let us Weave Threads of Hope Through Your Life
What We Specialize in
Family & Couples Counseling
Sometimes families and couples get lost in the chaos of life and need help reconnecting or managing stress better. We can help you heal from past hurts, increase trust, and connect again.
We work with families on your goals but always try to bring you together as a team. We help you to be heard and develop common goals, because at the core no family wants to be at war.
Unlike adult talk-therapy, kids often do not have the verbal or processing skills to simply talk through their problems and make necessary changes in their behavior and thinking. We use art and play therapy to help children process their feelings, learn to express them, and develop coping strategies. Sometimes we wonder who has more fun in these sessions: the kids or their therapists!
We encourage meetings with family members in order to teach parents’ skills and/or help you to respond in a way that fosters your child’s growth.
With teens and tweens we can use therapeutic games, journaling, art, and talk therapy depending on their openness and preferences. We work with the family to find solutions for everyone, but it is important for adolescents to feel validated and that their therapist is an advocate for them.
Individual therapy is meant to be a safe and empowering experience for you, so it is very important to us that you feel comfortable. Having a therapist who is a good fit for you is very important so you can build trust and work together effectively.
Different therapists have different personalities and approaches and you may find that you click better with one style than another, and that is just fine! We can help you to find a great fit for you and your situation.
