Our Services

  • Individual Therapy

    Individual therapy is a weekly, one-to-one meeting with a therapist for the purpose of reducing internal suffering due to behavior, feelings, beliefs, relationships or past experiences. Ongoing psychotherapy is also a common and useful means of self-growth and self-actualization.
  • Couples Therapy

    Couples therapy, helps couples — married or not — understand and resolve conflicts and improve their relationship. Couples therapy gives couples the tools to communicate better, negotiate differences, problem solve and even argue in a healthier way. Some common concerns Couples Therapy addresses are:
    • Ineffective/damaging communication
    • Repetitive fights and/or withdrawal
