With online counseling, we can work together virtually through video conference or over the phone. Virtual therapy is essentially the same as in-person practice but from the comfort of your home.
We believe that people are naturally resilient with the right support. Therapy facilitates growth, empowerment and insight so your presenting concerns can be effectively addressed. Therapy is not a one size fits all process and varies person by person depending on their goals. Some clients prioritize alleviating symptoms quickly, while others want to address the underlying causes of these symptoms so that more substantial inner growth can occur.
Typically, we take a holistic approach combining in depth traditional talk therapy with more recent empirically-validated and present-focused approaches. We sometimes act as a life coach, helping clients change behaviors and discern choices that lead toward the lives they envision. Topics discussed in therapy can be just about anything!
Relationships are hard and never in a fixed state but the effort is worth the work. Just like individual people, couples grow and evolve.
Our goal in working with couples is to help clients make lasting positive change, increase closeness and improve communication skills. Typically your therapist will see you both together for a consultation and then see each of you separately for a session before we all come back together for the following sessions.
Couples therapy involves and covers an extensive amount of topics. Topics that could be addressed include but are not limited to: Attachment, conflict management, communication, rebuilding trust after infidelity, codependency versus interdependence, open and/or alternative relationships, intention versus impact, and relationship satisfaction.
