Options for Participating in Therapy

Individual Psychotherapy:
Individual therapy consists of a 50-minute session where your needs for change are explored. Thoughts and feelings are expressed in a private, sacred space with personal guidance that targets your needs and supports your growth.

Group Psychotherapy: Group psychotherapy is a legitimate option, and can be an adjunct to Individual, Couples, or sometimes Family Therapy. The least expensive route to the exploration of your thoughts and feelings, Group is a way of building self in a community environment. Group helps one see oneself in the context of community as the feedback is immediate.

Couple’s Therapy: Working with marriage, partnerships, or other intimate pairings we focus on achieving greater communication, connectedness and respect of differences while maintaining or enhancing greater individuality. Our sessions highlight seeking to know the unconscious communications in intimate pairings, and using the relationship to achieve greater psychological freedom -- the freedom to have or feel your own thoughts and feelings.
