Wikipedia defines psychotherapy as: " the use of psychological methods, particularly when based on regular personal interaction, to help a person change and overcome problems in desired ways ... to improve an individual's well-being and mental health, to resolve or mitigate troublesome behaviors, beliefs, compulsions, thoughts, or emotions, and to improve relationships and social skills." We can't say it any better than that. All staff perform psychotherapy as stated above, usually beginning with weekly visits and once stabilization occurs to bi-weekly. Our goal is stability for the client and providing tools and strategies that can be employed so you can have the life you desire.

Our therapeutic work is based in the idea that quality of life is largely dependent upon the ability to be meaningfully connected to others. Sometimes though, we lack a sense of belonging and can be profoundly uncertain of our own potential, or where we stand in our relationships with others. Therapy is a life-changing, collaborative endeavor between therapist and client(s) focused on helping the client to better understand maladaptive patterns and, most importantly, to better comprehend what meanings reside in the evolving process of their life experiences. Through developing such awareness, clients are then able to live more consciously in terms of their behavior and relationship choices.
