“The only way we can change the way we feel is by becoming aware of our inner experience and learning to befriend what is going inside ourselves.” ~Bessel A. van der Kolk
Some people can use some guidance, a plan, and someone to keep them on track. We will sit together, figure out where you are stuck, and develop a step-by-step plan to get you unstuck. We will make weekly goals to chip away at the seemingly insurmountable.
Our therapists use an eclectic approach of therapeutic models, including, but not limited to, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and narrative therapy based on your own personal goals of treatment. We believe that personal growth and self-reflection come from support, guidance, and nurturance. This environment helps individuals build insight into their self-defeating thoughts and maladaptive behavior patterns, thus increasing self-esteem and enhancing how they interact with others.
Couples Therapy/Relationship Thearpy
In relationships, we tend to have the same arguments repeatedly, with little insight into how to change our patterns. When this occurs, there tends to be distance or emptiness in the relationship, pervasive feelings of anger or resentment, and thus a lack of interest in physical affection or a physical relationship with one another. We work with couples to break out of repetitive arguments by helping the couple gain insight, improve communication, thus enhancing intimacy and improving sexual desire discrepancies.
Sex therapy is talk therapy that is conducted in a safe and confidential setting by a trained and licensed therapist. The therapist provides education about anatomy and physiology, physical response, arousal patterns, and other pertinent sexual information specific to the client’s concerns. Under no circumstances does sex therapy involve any sexual or inappropriate contact between the therapist and the client. This form of therapy is geared to the sexual concerns of the client(s).
