There are many variables that can impact the family dynamic and in time create dysfunction. The most common are financial issues, grief and loss, alcohol or substance abuse and divorce. Any of these, as well as many others can have a devastating impact on an individual's mental and physical health as well as the overall functionality of the family. Family counseling is designed to create a cohesive family unit through effective communication and emotional bonding. Our clinicians specialize in family therapy through a variety of settings tailored to the specific needs of the individual and family.
During the initial assessment we will complete the necessary paperwork, discuss your rights and responsibilities as a client, gather a thorough history and discuss treatment goals.
Our individual and couples sessions are one clinical hour or 45-55 minutes depending on insurance coverage.
Our treatment approach is customized to you, our client, and based on your wants and needs. All of our practices are empirically supported by current research. Our treatment plans include combinations of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), family systems theory, reality therapy, motivational interviewing, and solution focused brief therapy (SFBT).
It is not uncommon for couples to face challenges and difficulties at some point in their relationship, but it is common for couples to resist the need to seek counseling. Most couples that are either experiencing relationship problems or just need relationship advice have a perceived stigma regarding couples counseling, this mindset has to be challenged. Several studies have shown that only a small percentage of couples who have ended their relationship or are divorcing sought couples counseling. To put it simply, successful relationships require work and dedication. Our clinicians specialize in premarital counseling and couples/marriage counseling utilizing specific models, guides and techniques to help work through these issues and create a solid foundation for your relationship.
Many individuals seek counseling services due to depression, anxiety, emotion regulation, life transitions, grief and loss, ADHD and substance abuse. In some instances individuals seeking counseling have chronic emotional challenges; however, many individuals have difficulties coping and managing normal life events. All of these struggles greatly affect an individual's ability to thrive. Our clinicians specialize in all of these areas and work to create an effective strategy based on each individual's needs and goals.
