Individual Therapy

Care is given to guiding the client to understand cause and effect: the ‘why?’ behind thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Individual therapy is the foundation to change and well-being. Attention is given to uncovering what is hidden within, with compassion and skill. Acquiring knowledge is necessary in understanding parts of ourselves that we have invested energy in avoiding. With new information and insight into ourselves we can finally take accountability for what does not benefit us. 

Couples Therapy/Family Therapy

The program and professional Therapists address the thinking and behaviors of all family members and the way that those affect not only individual family members, but also relationships between family members and the family unit as a whole. As such, treatment is usually divided between time spent on individual therapy and time spent on couple therapy, family therapy, or both, if necessary.

Group Therapy

A huge benefit of interacting with others is practicing new skills learned in treatment in a monitored environment. Clients often speak of rehab and the outside world as 2 worlds. World is world-our stuff will be triggered whether we are in rehab, the market, online, or driving. The sooner we can practice living mindfully in every moment life becomes an opportunity for building self-esteem, self-awareness, and accountability. Often clients have isolated themselves or have perceived themselves as very social without knowing who they are and what they are projecting outward. Groups are wonderful in facilitating greater compassion towards ourselves and others-a necessary component in building positive relationships in the world.

Expressive Therapy

Expressive art therapy makes the unconscious conscious. It is a liberating activity using materials (2 or 3 dimensional), writing, drama, music or movement revealing parts of us that have been hidden or kept us stuck. Freeing our expressive self and aligning with our true essence can be life changing. The beauty of expressive art therapy is no prior experience is necessary. In fact, it is often the person who says, “I cannot draw a straight line” who becomes surprisingly awakened, delighted, and invested in the process.

With insight comes validation and increased self-esteem. Through the expressive arts we experience relief reconnecting with what we often look to others for: understanding and connection. Expressive art therapy in groups increases compassion and empathy toward ourselves and others. We have everything we need right inside ourselves. The process of using the arts to express ourselves frees us from our limiting minds reconnecting us with the answers we carry within. We don’t have to go anywhere to find ourselves. We just have to let the inside out.
