Our Services

We offer a variety of therapeutic services to support your individual, family and marital needs.

Process Groups

Our process groups provide an excellent way to help you gain insight and develop skills to change behavior. They help you understand your behavior and its causes; "why you do what you do."  Then you can learn healthy ways to change long-term, problematic, unhealthy patterns. Our process groups also allow you to explore attachment and struggles with intimacy. You improve your understanding of yourself and others, and develop the confidence and skill to honestly communicate your needs and challenges with others.

Our process groups provide a safe, non-judgmental, empathetic environment of people with similar challenges and goals. Communication, emotional regulation and listening are just of few of the skills that you can develop and improve. Our groups allow you to try out new ways of thinking and behaving in a supportive place, and then use them to enhance your life.

Process groups typically include 4-6 people. They are held 1 time per week for 1.5 hours.  Please schedule an appointment for an assessment with one of our therapists, to determine which of our process groups is right for you.

Adults

Our philosophy is that individuals are the experts on their lives and that therapy is a collaborative process. We work with you in a caring, and confidential environment. We help you explore your feelings, beliefs, or behaviors and work through challenging, influential memories. We also help you to: identify aspects of your life that you'd like to change, better understand yourself and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change.

Couples

Our work with couples focuses on helping you communicate feelings; develop greater understanding and sensitivity to your partner's needs. We help couples to identify, clarify and compromise on marital expectations and discover mutually agreeable compromise.

We believe the formula to a happy and healthy intimate relationship is to help you change the negative views of your relationship, modify dysfunctional relationship patterns, decrease emotional avoidance and improve communication. We are looking forward to the opportunity to share this formula with you.

Children

We are passionate about our work with children. We're committed to providing kids with the tools they need to become productive, successful adults. Our work with children includes helping them; express feelings and thoughts respectfully, resolve anger and anxiety, and effectively manage behavior and emotions.

Children are often unable to understand and discuss their feelings and associated behaviors. This skill usually starts to take shape in early adolescence. Children express their inner worlds through play. Therapeutic play gives kids a medium in which to work out their conflicts and explore new feelings and ways of being. To facilitate therapeutic play, we interact with children on the floor, using materials such as dolls, Play-Doh, art, music and imaginative play. As child therapists, we've been trained to understand the meaning of your child's play, and to discuss that meaning with them to help promote positive change.

Children Specialties

  • Coping with anger, depression, trauma and anxiety
  • Peer pressure, bullying, problematic behavior
  • Self-esteem, sibling rivalry
  • ADHD/ ADD

Families

Our work with families focuses on improved communication, so that all family members feel heard and solutions to problems are fair and reasonable. Family sessions can include you, your child, parents, spouse or any combination of family members and/or friends. We also teach families to discuss issues without arguments, establish fair rules and boundaries, and make family-life enjoyable and fun.

The goal of family therapy is often to handle special family situations (for example, death, divorce and parenting issues). Through family therapy we can help you create a better functioning home environment. If you have a family member with a serious physical or mental illness, we can educate you and your family about the illness and work out problems associated with caring for your family member.

We provide help for stepfamilies who have difficulties adjusting to the family life. Families with members from a mixture of racial, cultural, and religious backgrounds, as well as families made up of same-sex couples who are raising children, may also benefit from family therapy.

  • Integrating blended families
  • Divorce & parenting
  • Stage of life changes

Individualized Outpatient Program (IOP)

Monitored Visits

We understand that families are often faced with intricate child custody, divorced and family separation matters. We're committed to providing the expertise, understanding and support needed to manage these difficult times.

Monitored visits refer to contact between a non –custodial parent and a child in the presence of a third person (a monitor) who is responsible for observing and ensuring the safety of those involved. Our goal is to maintain the safety of your child while promoting a therapeutic stress-free and enjoyable visit.

Custody Exchange Monitoring

This service allows the custodial parent to take a child to a pre-arranged, safe/neutral location. The non-custodial parent can then pick-up their child and return him/her to the same location once the visit is over. The pick-up times are staggered if necessary, so that the parents do not have to be in contact with each other.

Parenting Coordination

Parenting coordination is a service for parents who experience anger, distrust and difficulties communicating and cooperating about the care of their children. Parenting Coordinators strive to minimize children's exposure to harmful parental conflict. The goal of this service is to help parents build a healthy, effective co-parenting relationship, so children are not subjected to the negative effects of conflict.

Parenting Coordination Includes:

  • Meeting with parents (together & separately)
  • Meeting with children (with or without the parents)
  • Consulting with family friend, relatives and professionals
  • Making home and community visits
