My Approach to Helping
Holtz and Powell Marriage and Family Services LLC is a private and affordable fee for service therapy practice that specializes in problems in the family and couple. We work with children, adolescents, and adults of all ages, ethnicity, sexual orientations and religious backgrounds with no judgement and acceptance. We are an LGBT friendly practice.
Marriage and Family Therapy differs from traditional Individual Therapy in that all affected parties are included in therapy. Including all parties helps enhance the quality of relationships and create positive lasting changes in how individuals interact with one another. We do also work individually with clients from a relational perspective.

What I Usually Need to Know to Help
As we practice from a Family Systems perspective, we believe it is vital to understand the family history of our clients. The family is the blueprint for relationships when we are children. It is vital to fully understand our clients' family systems. Although we do not require our clients to include family members in therapy to make progress, we encourage our clients to reach out to family members, as this creates a more dramatic and lasting change.
