This picture is awesome. If I wanted to have a specialty it would be with children, adolescents, and their families. I have been working with kids in different capacities for over 14 years and as a therapist for 9 of those. Any parent can tell you that his or her children do not speak English because if they did the dishes would get cleared a lot more often. Children speak a different language and my job is to figure out that language and use it to help them thrive and strive. That language might be playing with toys, jumping on rocks by the creek, playing tag, or just shooting the breeze. In spite of your desire to make your kids happy I will not do that. I will, however, work with your children and the whole family system to facilitate health which generally leads to happiness. Parents: I expect you to be an active participant in your child's care.
Fee: individual session: $120; parenting session with 2 or more family members: $140
Family Counseling aims to improve general cohesion among family members and help the family operate more smoothly.
I use a blended approach that considers family structure and the role that each person plays in the family and also family history and how function or lack thereof has developed through the generations.
Family therapy sessions may include different parts of the family at different times depending on what you want and what I recommend.
If your family looks like the one in the picture then we might want to work on smiling a little more :-)
I work with any type of family system, if you consider them family that's good enough for me.
Yeah, I feel like this sometimes too. It's probably better if you stop looking at the picture, it's a little creepy.
Individual counseling is an opportunity to explore different parts of who you are (even the parts that make weird facial expressions.)
Individual counseling has a variety of applications including: surviving tough experiences, working with mental illness, self actualization, trauma processing, dealing with addiction,relationships with family and partners and much more.
The intent of couples counseling is to stretch both peoples' capacity for all of the ingredients that you feel are important in a relationship.
Those ingredients could include: love, affection, active listening, cohesion, healthy sexuality, teamwork, and whatever else you want.
If you often look like the couple in this picture then we might want to work on how you can both earn some money to get a room somewhere.
All couples welcome.
