Couples who are married, co-habitating, engaged, or otherwise can vastly improve their relationship as well as make personal improvements using therapy as the catalyst. Common issues couples struggle with is communication, co-parenting, trust, romantic intimacy, and the impact of their family of origin and personal history on the current relationship.
Families typically have an identified issue of concern, one particular challenge that negatively impacts the family dynamics and each individual family member. Family change begins with parents in order to create the change in the family dynamics and the household. Improving parenting skills, communication, and independence and personal responsibility in each family members brings about respectful relationships and balance in place of burden and chaos in the home. Each family’s circumstance determines who will participate in family therapy.

Trauma Focused Therapies
Science and research is proving more and more how much traumas, even seemingly small relational traumas, impact the brain and the development of issues later on in life. Unless an individual has a biologically based deficiency, their symptoms most likely originate in trauma, deep within the lower regions of the brain. Issues related to trauma are vast, including some recognizable symptoms of anxiety, depression, ADD/ADHD, addiction and PTSD. Other, more discrete symptoms include putting other’s above one’s own self, defensiveness, feelings of worthlessness, not knowing who you are or what you want in life, and many more. Healing issues of trauma directly correlate to a reduction of presenting problems and an overall improvement in all life areas. Trauma work is foundational for building a happier and healthier self and more enjoyable relationships.
