What is your approach?
We are a team of relationship therapists. Meaning, we help adult individuals and couples learn to master the messiness of their relationships, together or separately. We help people make sense out of what's working in their lives, what's not + what they can do about it. As relationship therapists we talk about how to heal, nurture, strengthen, and perhaps eve exit relationships that are unhealthy. The approach used by our team is a blend of Relational Life Therapy (RLT) and Gottman Method Therapy.
Who do you work with?
We work with adult individuals + couples throughout all stages of life. We have a sweet spot for helping couples and individuals explore trust and make space for deeper intimacy in relationships.
