There are no dynamics more complex than those within a family. Family therapy is designed to support your family in creating and maintaining healthy, strong relationships.  Often, families can be stuck in patterns of miscommunication, misunderstandings, or resentment.  Family therapy provides a safe and respectful environment to examine familial challenges and to find solutions. 

Any disruption to the family dynamic can be difficult for a family. Some common reasons families seek therapy include:

  • Conflict

  • Substance abuse

  • Miscommunication

  • Behavioral problems in children

  • Conditions such as depression, eating disorders, and/or anxiety

  • Sexual abuse

  • Grief and loss

 

We offer the following types of psychological assessment:

  • School Readiness

  • Cognitive

  • ADHD

  • Mental Health Evaluations

  • Personality Testing

We provide comprehensive psychological and cognitive testing to better understand issues from a holistic lens. Teens and adults often find themselves struggling with school, occupational, or family life tasks. At times, this may be related to an undiagnosed underlying issue. Identifying challenges, as well as focusing on one’s strengths and support systems, allows individuals to move past these organizational and motivational issues.

 

As we take part in the global effort to curb the spread of the coronavirus, we are committed to ensuring that you are still supported in the ways you deserve. We are excited to offer online therapy using a HIPAA compliant, secure telehealth software through SimplePractice!

 

In our ever-changing world, online therapy creates more flexibility, safety, and efficiency for clients. Online therapy has proven to be just as effective as in-person therapy and has the added benefit of being accessible anywhere you are.
