Very few factors can predict successful therapy better than finding the right therapist.
The best way to find a good fit with your therapist is to become an informed consumer and “shop around.” Because of this, we offer a free, no-obligation, 30-minute consultation for new clients. This gives you a chance to meet one of our therapists in person, ask questions, discuss your goals, and talk about treatment options. Most importantly, you will get a sense for their professional style.
How can we help?
As a team, you and your therapist will create a safe space to express, examine, and explore your thoughts and feelings. You will set goals based on what’s important to you, and tap into all of your resources to achieve those goals.
Most importantly, a good therapist is not the one who dispenses the most advice or “tells you what to do.” Instead, they get to know you and lead you to the wisdom you already have in order to make life’s most important decisions.
Teens and Children
Behavior problems, complaints at school, “acting out,” and clinginess — all of these and other problems of childhood and adolescence can be addressed in therapy.
One of the most important lessons we have learned is that although therapy can create great changes in teens and children, the best way to make those changes last is by working with the whole family. When treating a child or teen in individual therapy, much of the time the work will include parents. By changing your child’s environment, we have a better chance of achieving your child’s goals.
Family and Couples Therapy
One of the best ways to effect long-lasting, durable change, even in individuals, is by bringing families together to face challenges as a team. We’ll examine your family’s rules (spoken and unspoken), each family member’s roles, and the shared traditions.
Couples, traditional and non-traditional families, and even divorced families will benefit from the support and coaching that family therapy can provide!
