We help our clients build on their own
strengths and then use these
strengths to challenge ineffective
thoughts and behaviors.  Changing   
old patterns helps our clients build
more balanced, understanding
relationships, and achieve more
fulfillment and purpose in their lives.  
Therapy begins with a comprehensive
interview to review symptoms,
concerns and relevant history;  
personality tests and/or self-report questionnaires may also be used.  With this
information we diagnose our clients and, if appropriate, draw up a treatment plan.
 
You will either step forward into growth or you
will step back into safety.

Our theoretical orientation largely utilizes theory from cognitive-behavioral therapy
which has been researched and shown to be quite effective for the treatment of a
variety of mental health disorders.  When working with families, we may draw from
family systems theory to correct conflictual family dynamics and increase family
cohesiveness, or use specific solution-focused brief therapy techniques to target a
specific problem area.  It is often helpful to incorporate stress reducing techniques
such as systematic relaxation or deep breathing that can be incorporated into daily life.
Each case is individualized to meet the specific needs of the client.
