Family therapy & couples counseling
Our marriage and family therapists provide solution focused interventions with attainable therapeutic goals to aid the best outcome for all individuals involved. We also provide parent coaching and other interventions to improve communication among family members.
I often counsel families with children and adolescents. my focus is on helping parents understand the interaction patterns and how their children’s behavior often triggers responses in parents that may make problems
Marital or couples therapy helps partners by creating a context where emotionally charged issues in the relationship can be explored and where each partner develops awareness of how their behavior contributes to the problem situation. couples come to therapy seeking to revive love, sex, intimacy, and communication in their relationship.
Typical problems include threats of divorce, infidelity or cheating, fighting, anxiety, substance abuse, emotional withdrawal and conflict over spending and money.
From a relational or family systems model, i focus on counseling the person to become aware of how his behavior effects others and prevents him from developing closeness and stability in relationships.
The therapy also helps the person examine and change destructive premises and beliefs that lead to behaviors that are self defeating.
