My Approach to Helping
The hardest and bravest step anyone can take is to reach out and ask for help. We are passionate about helping individuals and families overcome any challenge to move toward positive change. It is important to our center to create a nonjudgmental and sensitive environment for each of our clients.
Our philosophy stems from the premise that every individual, couple, and family has strengths and capabilities that can be developed to help them attain and sustain a healthier lifestyle. We take a collaborative approach to therapy and our services are tailored to meet the unique needs of each client. We strive to maintain a safe and empathic environment where the client is the expert and we understand the importance of collaborating with family members and professionals involved in the lives of those with whom we work. Treatment plans and goals are identified collaboratively by the therapist and each client to attain the desired outcome and successfully complete treatment. Every client is treated with courtesy, consideration, respect, and with the recognition of every person's dignity, individuality, and the right to privacy.
We have extensive experience with couples, families, and children. We use play therapy techniques with children and our primary approach in couples sessions is Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). EFT is empirically supported and can help people address attachment-related insecurities and learn how to interact with their romantic partners in more loving, responsive, and emotionally connected ways, which can result in a more secure attachment.
It is our hope and honor that we might be the right center to help you or a loved one; or assist in ensuring the best therapeutic relationship is attained.
