Integrative therapy is an approach to treatment that involves selecting the techniques from different therapeutic orientations best suited to a client's particular problem. Integrative therapists hope to produce the most significant effects by tailoring the therapy to the individual
Therapy for adults
Looking for quality individual therapy sessions with a certified psychotherapist who is compassionate, unjudgmental and trustworthy, you’ve come to the right place. We guide our clients every step and implement various methods to help them develop new attitudes toward all of life’s most complex matters. Schedule an appointment today because your well-being is our priority.
Anxiety and Stress
Certain facets of life are stressful, and many situations — from a job interview to relationship problems — can cause you to feel anxious. A psychologist can help you manage stress and anxiety by finding the source or cause of your problems and appropriate ways to overcome them.
Overwhelming feelings of helplessness or hopelessness are common signs of depression. While some people believe that you can “snap out” of depression, it rarely occurs. Depression is a common mental health disorder where people lose interest in things, experience fatigue, and often have trouble managing their emotions. Psychologists can help you find the source of depression — often the first step to feeling better and helping with negative thought processes
Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder ( PTSD)
Life-threatening events, such as crimes, accidents, and natural disasters, can stay with you long after they’re over. In time, a traumatic event can lead to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD causes symptoms such as flashbacks, avoidance, and emotional distress. It can affect all people, including children. Psychotherapy is an effective treatment for PTSD. Psychologists use cognitive processing therapy (CPT) and stress inoculation training (SIT) to help clients manage PTSD symptoms.
Some unhealthy habits – such as smoking, drinking, and drug use – are often used to escape more significant underlying problems or to self-medicate. While your psychologist will help you get to those problems, they can also help you tackle the problems immediately facing your health, such as addictions, eating disorders, stress management, and sleeping problems.
Grief, Loss, and Bereavement
Death is an unavoidable part of life, but that doesn’t make it easier to deal with. Everyone handles the loss of a loved one — whether a parent or a pet — differently. Grieving openly or privately is common, but avoiding the realities of loss can lead to longer, lingering problems. A psychologist can help you find appropriate ways to cope with the death of someone close to you.
Any severe illness, whether your own or a loved one’s, can be devastating. You might feel a range of emotions, from anger and denial to sadness and regret. Therapy can help you cope with emotions and symptoms caused by your illness
Confidence, self-esteem, and support
In some cases, a therapist acts as a coach, helping you recognize your full potential, work on communication skills, and find motivation. For many people, talking with a therapist can help them see their problems more clearly and take action. It’s not the same as talking with a friend. Psychologists are trained to be careful and unbiased listeners. When appropriate, your therapist might challenge you to recognize thought or relationship patterns that aren’t helping you move forward
Family, personal, or work-related relationships have their ups and downs. While relationships can be some of the best things in life, they can also be a source of stress and problems. Working with a psychologist, either individually or in a group setting, can help iron out wrinkles that can form in even the strongest relationships.
Therapy for families and couples
Relationships are complex, but we don’t have to go at it alone. We’ll work to solve current problems and improve positive thinking and behavior in our therapy sessions. We will help “re-frame” reactions and provide our clients with valuable tools to cope with life’s obstacles. We are confident our clients will find our personalized family or couples therapy beneficial and inspirational. Get in touch to book an appointment.
Couples Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that can help you and your partner improve your relationship. A wide range of relationship issues can be addressed, including recurring conflicts, feelings of disconnection, an affair, matters related to sex, or difficulties due to external stressors. If you have relationship difficulties, you can seek couples therapy to help rebuild your relationship.
Accepting the idea of a different future to the one you have envisioned is a brave decision, and it can bring with it feelings of loss, anger, and profound sadness. No one has experienced childlessness in quite the same way as anyone else. We all need to tell our story in our way, and it can be beneficial to talk to someone at this time.
We provide counseling for families formed through adoption and guardianship and families involved in foster care or who are caring for kin. We work with individuals and families who came together through domestic, international, or child welfare adoption. We welcome birth parents, blended families, and those who achieved pregnancy through reproductive technologies. Our attachment-focused, trauma responsive, adoption/permanency competent therapy assists families with various challenges to support the whole family.
Prenatal and postpartum Counseling
Becoming a parent is truly a life-changing experience. From the moment you learn of your pregnancy, you think about life differently. You imagine the birth, who your child will be, what kind of parent you will be – the list is endless. Despite reading all the latest baby books, sometimes reality is nothing like the joyful story you were counting on. The fantasy of cuddling with a sleepy newborn is replaced with pacing the hallway with a screaming baby at 3 am. You are completely overwhelmed and wondering if you are cut out for this parenthood gig. You may even believe that you are not a good parent and have made a terrible mistake. No one ever prepares you for the challenges of parenthood, how miserable it can be at times. We understand the stress that comes with parenting and want you to know that you are not alone in how you are feeling. We can help you to feel calmer, happier, and more confident. If you feel a significant amount of stress or are unsure if what you are experiencing is typical of pregnancy or parenthood, contact us for a free phone consultation. We work with people in all stages of parenting, whether you recently welcomed a baby or you have older children. Did you know we offer video sessions? It’s a great option to use on days when you have no childcare or transportation or for those who live far from our center.
Therapy for children and teens
Growing up is not easy, particularly these days. Young people face peer and academic pressures, shifts in the family (like divorce or relocation), the onset of hormones in adolescence, and the ever-present challenge of managing their emotions. The potential issues and intense feelings run a wide range. Therapy can help children or adolescents (and parents) understand important relationships in their lives, especially if the child has questions or wants to make changes. Our families typically reach out to us because one of them is having trouble managing their feelings or often feeling angry, sad, or anxious. No matter their age, therapy may be the best choice to help a child work toward meaningful changes. We are here to help, whether that means setting goals with your child or giving them the tools they need to meet their daily demands.
Therapists are trained to help with all sorts of problems and situations such as:
