  • Self esteem – feelings of worthlessness, guilt, shame
  • Abuse - verbal, emotional, physical, sexual (current or past)
  • Domestic violence
  • Trauma - having experienced or witnessed abuse, accidents, or other stressful life events that continue to have negative effect on life
  • Attachment disruptions – foster/adopted children, children with frequent changes in caregivers, who have moved frequently, have been raised with substance abuse, neglect, or abuse

Our typical clients enter therapy with concerns about their family, their relationships, or with distressing emotions. We provide therapy for children, families, or adults who may be experiencing depression, relationships problems, stress or parenting concerns, as well as other challenges. We also see children, teens, and adults who have experienced significant trauma who require longer term trauma-specific therapy. Or we see a combination – people who have pushed down emotions from trauma early in life and now it is affecting current relationships. When it's appropriate, we work together through the past difficult issues in order to help address current situations and relationships. We have extensive experience and training in these areas, and tailor treatment to meet your needs after a thorough assessment. We are all trained in providing EMDR Therapy, when it's appropriate. 

We have a family-focused approach to therapy. We believe that a child or adult’s difficulties can often be turned around with therapy that addresses both individual and family issues. Improvement often occurs significantly sooner when the family is involved rather than just a child who may be acting out. Usually unhappy marriages = unhappy parents = unhappy children or any combination of those… We structure therapy to meet your family’s specific needs. Rest assured - we do not judge, and are only here to enhance your life, and have you feeling better - not worse with guilt or blame! See the tabs above for specifics on how we work with children, teens and adults.
