We are currently staffed to provide individual (ages 12+) and couples therapy through a variety of therapeutic modalities such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, emotion-focused therapy, internal family systems, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), the Gottman Method and Prepare-Enrich.
