This modality is for men and women interested in working on intra- and interpersonal issues that are interfering with achieving happiness. By raising awareness of the interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit, a greater sense of wholeness is possible. Both men and women learn to recognize how they create resistance to change and are supported in your choices to reaching your goals.
Therapy can help couples restore their intimacy and commitment. Partners use this therapeutic model when they experience emotional distance within the relationship and problems ensue. Sometimes continuous conflict brings a heightened state of tension. At other times one of the partners becomes over involved with work, children, or even unhealthier coping mechanisms such as gambling, affairs, and alcohol/drug use. Life partners can develop new insights and learn different behavioral patterns to repair "broken" and strained bonds.
Families are a unique unit with complex communication patterns and roles. It is usual that tension within the family is experience more strongly by one family member voicing a concern about the family as a whole. Family therapy is the preferred approach when presented with systemic issues within the immediate family and sometimes to the extended family. Working together as a family in therapy can help the family find a balance that supports the needs of each and every member.
Group therapy is ideal for both men and women wanting to improve their sense of meaningfulness. Through this experiential group experience, members begin to explore who they are in relation to others. Opportunities to give and receive support, experiment with new ways of relating, and understand blocks to gaining intimacy are created and explored.
Therapy is helpful for all ages of children who have difficulty expressing themselves verbally. Play therapy for younger children offers the opportunity for children to work through trauma, build self-esteem, and regain control in their lives. Parents are encouraged to learn this modality in order to apply the techniques themselves.
