  •   Relationship Therapy

    Relationships with loved ones are very important to us all, and they can sometimes be challenging and difficult. People who care for each other can become overwhelmed by disagreements that spiral out of control into hurtful arguments. Relationship therapy focuses on the dynamics between the two or more people, married or otherwise, without blaming any of the partners for the problems. People sometimes seek relationship therapy prior to moving in together, making a serious commitment in their relationship, or when considering any change in the relationship. Intimate partners might also seek therapy when there is a feeling of dissatisfaction within the relationships related to communication, sex, connection, or something else; an experience of a difficult event (i.e. death, infidelity); or a significant life change (i.e. a move, birth of a child, decision to open up a relationship, etc). Relationship therapy typically focuses on emotional and intimate connection, and communication between the partners with the aim to find a solution to lead to higher levels of connection and satisfaction in the relationships. In therapy, we will work to help each partner understand their role in the relationship interactions and to identify more constructive ways of communicating and engaging in the intimate relationship, increasing emotional intimacy and reconstructing old patterns of behavior, resulting in more satisfying and fulfilling connection with one another.

  • Military Family

    Military personnel and their families face a unique set of challenges that those in the civilian world may not experience. Due to stressors like relocation, deployment, unpredictability of assignments, and increased level of risk to physical, mental, and emotional health, service members and their families require a therapist with specialized experience who understands military culture and can support the clients’ needs. Military therapists can help soldiers and their families manage a variety of adjustment and psychological issues such as: depression, anxiety, generalized stress, stress-related combat issues, substance abuse, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
