People seek therapy for a wide variety of reasons, from coping with major life challenges or childhood trauma, to dealing with depression or anxiety, to simply desiring personal growth and greater self-knowledge.
Sessions are typically 55 minutes long and are weekly or bi-monthly.
Couples counseling is a process through which a couple (who may be engaged, dating, married, partnered—works with a trained therapist to identify specific areas of conflict and/or aspects of their relationship they would like to change, and then develops a plan of action to improve each individual’s satisfaction and contentment.
Working with a therapist in a safe and confidential setting, couples are able to explore how their individual backgrounds, beliefs, thoughts, and behaviors may be impacting their relationship in both positive and negative ways. The therapist may assist the couple with addressing any immediate and pressing problems, as well as developing strategies for protecting and enhancing the long-term health and happiness of their relationship.

Family Therapy – helps people in a close relationship support each other.
It enables family members, couples and others who care about each other to express and explore difficult thoughts and emotions safely, to understand each other’s experiences and views, appreciate each other’s needs, build on strengths and make useful changes in their relationships and their lives.
Research shows Family Therapy is useful for children, young people and adults experiencing a very wide range of difficulties and experiences. Family Therapy enables people to talk together or individually, often about difficult or distressing issues, in ways that respect their experiences, invite emotional engagement and support recovery.
Family Therapy sessions are usually 55 minutes in duration and occur weekly to bi-monthly.
Group therapy is a process through which a small group of people (generally six to ten) meet face-to-face with a trained group therapist to talk about a particular issue with which all of them is struggling—such as grief/bereavement, anger management, eating disorders, substance use disorders, living with chronic depression or anxiety, or recovering from childhood sexual abuse, etc.
Under the direction of the group therapist, members share and explore their feelings and behaviors, hear different points of view, learn new coping strategies, and receive encouragement from others facing similar issues. Group therapy provides participants a powerful opportunity to share and learn from others in a safe and supportive environment while working toward healing and change.
