Our clinicians utilize client-led evidence-based integrative practice. This means that they learn theories, train in modalities, and read research that are effective for their specialty areas of practice. Our clinicians then build a relationship and create a treatment plan with each client that integrates selected theories, modalities, and research that are most likely to be effective for that client.
Just a few of the modalities that we use include: EMDR, TFCBT, Narrative Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Structural Family Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, Life Story Therapy, Play Therapy, Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT), Internal Family Systems Therapy (IFS), and Motivational Interviewing.
Our teen/tween therapy program serves young people between the ages of 11-17. Child clients meet with their therapist on a weekly basis for at least 12 weeks virtually, in-person, or hybrid. In addition to weekly child-centered individual psychotherapy sessions, we offer additional parent-child sessions, parent-therapist consultation sessions, and direct collaboration with a child’s other settings (e.g. school), throughout the 12 weeks.
Our program is intended to support youth struggling with stress, identity challenges, trauma, social issues, family relationships, self-esteem, adoption and foster care issues, LGBTQIA+ issues, issues around race and ethnicity, and mild-to-mild-moderate severity of mental illnesses (e.g. anxiety, depression, mood disorders, OCD, etc.). We seek to intervene at a child’s initial signs of struggle to prevent them from needing higher levels of care and to reduce the need for any therapy overall.
Parenting coaching is an empowering service that creates a non-clinical relationship between a coach and a child's parents. Through this empowering relationship, parents can gain skills, confidence, developmentally-sound wisdom, motivation, encouragement, and guidance in their parenting approach with their children.
Your parenting coach gains a deep understanding of your needs as a parent especially in response to your child's needs. Your coach transfers skills, education, and advice to address those needs and to build upon strengths you and your child already have. Your coach also provides a supportive, non-judgmental space for you to talk out your parenting fears and insecurities.
Growth coaching is a service that establishes a non-therapeutic relationship with a helping professional (like a therapist). Coaching allows helping professionals to utilize their expertise in human thoughts, feelings, and behavior outside of a traditional clinical treatment model (e.g. psychotherapy).
