Couples Therapy

Get Closer

Argue less, experience satisfying physical intimacy, and feel heard, understood, and deeply appreciated by your partner – those are some of the most common goals for couples counseling. Therapy can help rebuild trust after a breach, support you through life transitions, and give you the tools to navigate life together with love and compassion.


Individual therapy

Gain Clarity

Therapy offers a safe and supportive space to help you move through difficult life transitions, develop healthier coping skills, and improve the quality of your relationships. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, or a painful past experience, therapy helps you to heal – so you can move forward with clarity and confidence.


Family therapy

Come Together

In marriage and family counseling and in child therapy, we work collaboratively to help your family unit improve communication and understanding, so you can learn how to come together as a cohesive unit and support each other through crises, transitions, and daily life.

"Our work spanned several topics including communication, our physical intimacy, the in-laws/ holiday arrangements, and our changing needs. Having deep discussions about how our behavior has impacted each other has been very helpful. I feel much more connected and seen. Couples therapy really helped me to express my needs and communicate more clearly."
- Kristen B., 31
