We help couples realize their relationship’s fullest potential. Our therapists help couples restore a healthy and balanced relationship by equipping them to overcome roadblocks that keep them from experiencing joy with each other.
In group therapy, one or two trained therapists collaborate with several people who may have similar experiences and are looking to move forward. Group therapy creates community for our clients, and can help them feel less alone in their experience. For some individuals, group work can be an impactful form of therapy. Group therapy is a great option if:
— You would like to work on how you relate to others.
— You want to connect with people with similar experiences.
— You are open to learning how to be supported by others.
We specialize in helping teens realize their fullest potential by understanding who they are and where they would like to go. Teenagers face unique challenges, such as managing social pressures, relationships, academic expectations, and future goals, all while trying to figure out who they want to be in the world.
Our qualified therapists will motivate your teen to be an active participant in their journey to healing and self-discovery. We will equip your adolescent with the coping skills that are necessary to overcome life’s roadblocks, such as loss, depression, anxiety, trauma, isolation, and difficult transitions.
We make sure that our services are individualized and specific to your needs and values. We are a welcoming space that is honored to serve the LGBTQ community. Whether you are seeking therapy that relates to your sexual or gender identity, our holistic approach values all parts of our clients.
For queer people, having a holistic approach in therapy means working with a therapist who can understand and relate your past experiences to the stressors that you face today, whether they be traumas or day-to-day life issues. We recognize that everyones experience is shaped in a unique way, but that everyone is impacted by past events related to their journey as an LGBTQ individual. These impacts can vary from our lived experiences to the messages we receive from family, friends, our communities or even media and the society.
We strive for you to not to have to educate your therapist on the community, but rather focus on your unique story. We work with children and adults of all ages in our inclusive approach.
The premise of psychodynamic therapy is making the unconscious (what is not readily in our awareness) conscious. The techniques of this modality help you gain insight into your inner processes and behaviors that you may not be consciously aware of. This process helps us become aware of patterns that occur in our behaviors, thoughts, emotions, and relationships. This theory also holds the belief that our past experiences greatly impact our current experiences and relationships.
EMDR is a psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are a result of disturbing life experiences. One aspect of EMDR therapy is that you do not have to talk in detail about a trauma for it to be digested by your own information processing system in the brain. Rather than trying to talk through the problem, the processing occurs on a physiological level and allows new associations, insights, and emotions to emerge spontaneously. EMDR therapy involves a very specific set of procedures to support your brain's own healing mechanisms.
EFT is form of therapy that focuses on adult relationships and how to strengthen the connection and organization of attachment and bonding patterns. The therapist and the couple look at patterns in the relationship and take steps to create a more secure bond and develop more trust to move the relationship in a healthier, more positive direction. EFT is designed to help you make changes right now.
Sand tray therapy is a form of expressive therapy that allows a person (children, adults, and families) to construct a microcosm using miniature toy figures and sand. The scene created acts as a reflection of your own life and allows you the opportunity to resolve conflicts, remove obstacles, and gain acceptance of self. Your therapist will work closely with you to use the sand tray as a tool for you to share deep thoughts and feelings as they happen in a way that can be more expansive than words alone.
This integrative approach, conceptualized by Dr. Cole and Dr. Narayan, is based upon Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral theory. It uses techniques that allow clients to deeply understand the complexities of their minds, as well as make modalities like Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) more meaningful and user-friendly to shift thinking and improve overall functioning. To put it simply, all of us have many parts to who we are.
Understanding where a part came from and whether that part is hurting or helping us allows us to live more in alignment with the life we truly want.
CBT posits that problems people experience are based on unhelpful ways of thinking and on learned patterns of unhelpful behavior. One way to find relief from day-to-day problems is to learn better ways of coping with these thinking and behavior patterns. There are a number of well-researched strategies that your therapist will use to help you recognize when you fall into old patterns and examine whether those thoughts and behaviors are helpful. This therapy targets problems occurring in the here and now.
This therapy combines CBT techniques with mindfulness strategies as a way to help you understand and manage your thoughts and feelings in times of distress. With these strategies, you learn how to interrupt the automatic processes that trigger depressed mood. The therapist helps you develop a sense of separation from your mood and thoughts. This format can be used in group psychotherapy or in individual sessions.
