One-on-one therapy allows for deeper understanding of the relationship of the self to other aspects of the self, the self and the environment, and the inner world of the self. The overall goals of individual therapy are to gain a deeper meaning of our essential self in relation to the underlying conflict of the presenting problem and to integrate the mind, body, and spirit as one. As we gain acceptance of our inherent worth, we begin to see the world in which we live much differently and embrace the courage to live our lives authentically according to our own inner wisdom.
Couples TherapyCouples therapy serves to explore the dynamic relationship found between two people in their individual and couple goals, communication, and the emotional blocks that inhibit them from living life in harmony, compassion and love with one another. The movement in relationships can become stagnate, leaving couples feeling stuck and in many circumstances, wondering if their relationship is sustainable. The responsiblities of adult life often takes precedence over the relationship which, over time, causes a disconnect from each other. In couple therapy, the goal is not to return to what was once there, but to maximize the strength found in each other as you both move through the difficulties.
The family unit is one of the most important inter-relationships of our lives. The concept of self is built from our understanding of who we are and what role we play in our family. In many ways, the way we interact with our family members is indicative of the way in which we walk through the world. In family therapy, we explore our strengths and our limitations within the unit and strive to move toward an interdependent relationship in which each member feels heard, understood and accepted as an individual while also supporting the value of the whole family.
