Someone once said that marriage is the ultimate act of forgiveness because we forgive each other for who we are. This speaks to accepting and honoring each other as vital and valuable human beings who have chosen to spend their lives together. Once acceptance and the celebration of each other is rooted in a marriage, the difficulties and disappointments in life can be met with strength and growth. Read More

Our independent practitioners recognize that adolescence presents special challenges. The therapists work to foster a relationship with the adolescent, and to help parents, caregivers, and family members to find a way forward together. Special challenges include social anxiety, school performance issues, depression, and crisis of self-identity. A history of trauma can also begin to impact the adolescent in new ways. Our therapists are also sensitive to issues of suicidal ideation.
