We recognize the central importance of relationships in the well-being of individuals, couples, families, and communities. We focus on people's strengths and possibilities, while addressing their real life problems. We want to help you break the negative cycles in your relationship and discover a deeper, more fulfilling connection with your partner or family members. We seek to engage the best in you, your partner, your family, and your life. From that place, we address the frustrations, stress, pain, and/or difficulties that you are experiencing.
The values of the organization are openness, trust, transformation, and
Providing marriage and family therapy is our passion. Couples describe
our style as warm, open and engaging. Our
approach allows each of you the space to express your concerns while maintaining
emotional safety. We work together to address real life issues, and we are open to
feedback throughout the therapy process.
Each couple is unique. Some people need to go deeply into past hurts while
others want to deal with more immediate problems. We will discover together the
best approach to improve your relationships and life. We build on couple's research, and the
Emotionally Focused Therapy
(EFT). We then work together collaboratively based on your goals and situation.
