An active approach to solving problems
We know that you are coming to us because you need help solving your problems. Thus, our therapists take an active role in trying to help you solve your problems. Your therapist will likely make recommendations, offer specific strategies you can try, and actively seek your feedback to ensure that therapy is helping you.
A non-blaming/non-judgmental approach to therapy
Our approach to therapy emphasizes solving problems. Rather than looking to assign blame, find what is “wrong with you, your partner, your relationship” we focus on solving problems.
Building on strengths
Most of us know that there are times when we are not at our best, when we could do better. We work with you to draw on your strengths and help you find ways to do better in your relationship.
Finding and building on what is already working
Many times there are things that are working well in a troubled relationship. We help you identify the strategies and methods that work for you, and help you apply these to areas where you are struggling.
Changing patterns of interaction
All too often people get caught in negative cycles or patterns. Helping you and your partner identify and break these patterns is a key part of promoting change.
Addressing individual challenges
At times, individuals may have problems, whether with alcohol, depression or other issues, which are negatively affecting their relationship. If individual concerns are present we help you address these issues and manage these stresses more effectively.
