Our couples therapists and marriage counselors treat some of the same issues as other psychologists, such as depression and anxiety, substance abuse, and PTSD. But their work focuses on issues that are specific to their target group, the family. Some common issues that family counselors encounter are marital conflicts, adolescent behavior problems, domestic violence and issues related to infertility.
Marriage and family therapists observe how people behave within the family, and identify relationship problems. They then come up with treatment plans so that each individual has his or her needs met and the family unit can work for the benefit and happiness of all.
Individual therapy is useful for many types of situations that cause anxiety, stress, anger, PTSD, grief or conflict. In a comfortable, private setting, an individual and a therapist will explore many different important issues, including

The exact way in which this therapy is implemented tends to vary depending on the issues in question, the practices of the therapist and the needs of the individual

Life Coaching is a profession that is profoundly different from consulting, mentoring, advice, therapy, or counseling. The coaching process addresses specific personal projects, business successes, general conditions and transitions in the client's personal life, relationships or profession by examining what is going on right now, discovering what your obstacles or challenges might be, and choosing a course of action to make your life be what you want it to be.
One of the most common misconceptions about life coaching is that it is therapy in disguise — or, worse yet, therapy from an unlicensed practitioner. In reality, life coaching is truly its own unique service designed to help ambitious achievers meet the outcomes that will bring them success and fulfillment, in any and all areas of life. Here are some of the differences between life coaching and therapy, and a basic guide for when each service is appropriate.
The Life Coaching Format:
Life Coaching is a designed alliance between coach and client where the coaching relationship continually gives all the power back to you, the client. We believe that you know the answers to every question or challenge you may have in your life, even if those answers appear to be obscured, concealed or hidden inside.
Our skills are about knowing the right questions to ask and having the right tools and techniques to empower you to find those answers within yourself.
You, the client, are the only expert in your entire life who truly knows who you are and what you need. You are the only expert who can recognize what is absolutely best for you. We are simply experts in the coaching process. As your coach, we help you discover what your own personal "best" might be.
Every day we make choices to do or not do many things. These choices may range from profound to trivial and each one has an effect that makes our lives more fulfilling or less fulfilling, more balanced or less balanced, that make our process of living more effective or less effective. Life coaching helps you learn how to make choices that create an effective, balanced and fulfilling life.
We help you connect your head and your heart in a way that transforms your passion for your dreams into action for your life.
We are highly trained as generalists and can coach superbly on any aspect of life. However, we may choose to specialize in one or more of the following areas :
Common Reasons Why Parents Contact Us
Decoding: Your son or daughter isn’t doing as well as you would like. His/her behavior is mystifying at times. You can’t connect with each other. You’re concerned.
Transition Tune-Up: Your kid is entering middle school, ninth grade, the eleventh-grade grind, the “college process,” college, the “real world.” Transitions can bring out some interesting dynamics with young people and families.
Teaching Kids to Follow Their Passion: Eleanor Roosevelt said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” The cornerstone of my work with young people is figuring out what they are truly passionate about. Are their dreams athletic, artistic, scientific? Do they include getting into a great college, getting better grades, becoming more organized, developing better friends, becoming an amazing “fill in the blank?”
When Things Are Going Haywire: Things at the house aren’t good. Your son or daughter is struggling. Family communication has ground to a halt. People are tense, upset. There might be drugs, alcohol, anger, school dysfunction, failure to launch, depression, anxiety, ADD, family conflict…. Your parental options feel limited: Conventional therapy isn’t working or isn’t enough. Sending your kid away to wilderness-based therapy can be heartbreaking and expensive. Perhaps your son or daughter has already been sent away, is coming home and you’re concerned things will go backwards to a very bad place.
I offer a third option. I work with kids and their families in their home in a positive, flexible, proactive way, emphasizing measurable, practical, and sustainable change, both short and long-term. My approach is relaxed, non-hierarchical, and results-oriented.
We all have three directions from which to choose: backwards, in circles, or in the direction of our passion.
Life coaching’s a partnership, that work hard to connect with our young clients and their families. Here’s how I work:
Enjoy that immediate sense of relief (not dissimilar to a doctor’s visit with a confusing, scary medical concern) as you quickly begin to see the origins of your teen or 20-something’s despair and acting out and are given a cogent, workable plan for a solution.
Get clear and focused on the goals and objectives that will radically change your life next year.
Gain new tools and confidence to breakthrough limitations, and skills to inspire and empower others.
Renew your energy, improve your psychology and reach your goals with a coach that pushes you.
Master of your emotions. Tap into courage, strength, passion and confidence in the face of challenges.
Most people run from their fears, you will learn to recognize them and allow them to drive you towards achievement.
Being able to check in with a coach weekly is like having a best friend whose sole purpose is to help you succeed and hit whatever target you have set. Sometimes it is hard to find people in our lives who can honestly hold us accountable, all while cheering us on and motivating us throughout the whole process.
