Family Therapy

Family therapy is a type of psychotherapy that can help family members improve communication and resolve conflicts. Family therapy can be useful in any family situation that causes stress, anxiety, grief, anger or conflict. It can help you and your family members understand one another better and learn coping skills to bring you closer together. Your family may pursue family therapy along with other types of mental health treatment, especially if one of you has a mental illness.

Signs you may need family therapy:

  • Abuse or neglect

  • Addiction

  • Conditional love

  • Lack of boundaries

  • Lack of intimacy

  • Perfectionism

  • Poor communication

Group Therapy

Group therapy is a form of psychotherapy that involves one or more therapists working with several people at the same time. Groups can act as a support network and a sounding board. Other group members often help you come up with specific ideas for improving a difficult situation or life challenge, and hold you accountable along the way. Group therapy also provides you an opportunity to hear others discussing what they’re going through and realize you’re not alone. We provide different types of groups and please check “upcoming events info” for more group therapy information.

Groups include:

  • Anxiety Group for Women

  • Mental Health Support Group for Moms

  • Mental Health Support Group for New Moms

  • Mindfulness Group for Women with Trauma

  • Social Skill Group for Elementary School Children

  • Support Group for Parents of Children with Special Needs

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

A therapy technique that is used with most clients is called “Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).”  In CBT, we focus on how your thoughts control your feelings.  We will practice identifying, challenging and restructuring your irrational thoughts by collecting evidences from your past life experiences to change your feelings about life circumstances.

Mindfulness

The purpose of mindfulness is to live in the present moment rather than having your thoughts scattered all over (in the past or future). Mindfulness has been used in therapy to treat a wide range of mental health challenges include but not limited to anxiety, depression, and trauma. We use many techniques that cultivate mindfulness, including square breathe, body scan, progressive muscle relaxation, mindful eating, etc. 

Behavioral Modification Therapy

Behavior modification is a therapeutic approach designed to change a particular undesirable negative behavior. By using a system of positive or negative consequences, an individual learns the correct set of responses for any given stimulus. We provide behavioral modification therapy not only for children with behavioral challenges but also adapt this therapeutic approach for adults to change undesired behaviors.
