Collaborative MFT (CMFT) takes a collaborative approach to
psychotherapy and relationship healing. This therapeutic approach unites
the therapist’s competence with your strengths in order to find
healing pathways. In treatment with us, you will join with the therapist
to recognize your strengths and identify alternate possibilities in order
to improve life as a whole:
biologically, psychologically, socially, and spiritually.
Do people really change? Healing and change occurs
This belief underlies our work with all
individuals, couples and families. Regardless of the treatment modality
(individual, couple or family therapy) healing is found through the
relationships with self, therapist, family, and significant others.
We specialize in creating a safe environment for couples to re-establish
trust and connection. Couples are able to increase intimacy and improve
their understanding of themselves and their partner. READ
Individual therapy is for those who have experienced dissatisfaction in
their personal lives, who find themselves feeling unhappy,
“stuck,” and are experiencing unproductive symptoms.
The goal of our anger programs is not only to reduce your anger
“symptoms” but to allow you to listen to and meet the needs
underneath…those needs previously stifled by anger. READ MORE….
