Type of Therapy Offered

Individual Therapy

This type of therapy is a collaborative process between the therapist and the client with the aim of making shifts or changes so that quality of life is improved.  Sessions are typically 45 minutes.  Individual therapy is useful for many different issues including symptom management, relationship difficulties, work/school problems, life transitions, stress management, and personal growth.

Couples Therapy

This type of therapy is a collaborative process between the therapist and the couple.  Sessions are typically 45-55 minutes.  The goals are to shift or cahnge dysfunctional patterns of engagement between the couple so as to manage problems more effectively, prevent small problems from turning into large problems, and to reconnect emotionally with your partner.  Couples counseling can improve a person's physical as well as mental health, in addition to improving the relationship.

Family Therapy

This type of therapy is a collaborative process between the therapist and the family.  Sessions are typically 45-55 minutes.  The goal is for everyone in the family to make shifts versus just one person making the change so that it is more long-lasting.  If only one person makes change and then he/she return to the same environment, then he/she is likely to fall back into old patterns of engaging with others and the change will not last.  However, if the family as a whole makes shifts, then the change is ikely to be more sustaining.  This approach is particularly encouraged with children and adolescents and also for families struggling with a loved one with mental illness.
