During individual therapy, the therapist and client work together with the goals of inspiring change or improving quality of life. Individual therapy can teach skills for managing difficult emotions, making healthy decisions, and reaching goals. Many find they enjoy the therapeutic journey of becoming more self-aware. Some people even go to ongoing therapy for self-growth.

Couples and Marriage Therapy
The ultimate goal of couples therapy is to improve the relationship, but it can also help people decide whether or not they should continue together. Although the focus is on the couple, there are times when the individual psychological issues of one or both parties need to be addressed. Therapy is often designed to improve problem-solving, build communication skills, and identify life goals and relationship responsibilities. Other common topics include infidelity, financial problems, illness, life changes, and anger.
Looking to the future, we are passionate about supporting and empowering the next generation of mental health professionals. As part of this, we provide LISW supervision services with a focus on cultural competence.
When families migrate, they often separate and then reunify, which involves a redefining of the family, not just adjusting to a new culture. Having access to a therapist who understands the process of migration, the reasons families migrate, and the related family or marital stressors is invaluable. Addressing these issues helps promote the emotional well-being of the family as a whole.
Drug/Alcohol Prevention and Education
Alcohol and other drug education programs aim to delay or prevent the use of alcohol and other drugs. Encouraging efforts on both the individual and community levels promotes healthy lifestyles. Positively influencing attitudes, norms, and values empower individuals and families to create the life they want.
