About Marriage and Family Therapy

Marriage and Family Therapists (MFTs) are trained in systemic, or relational, therapy. As MFTs, we understand you are a part of many different systems and relationships that impact your well-being and influence who you are.  So whether you come to therapy as an individual, couple, or family, we seek to see and understand you in the context of your environment and relationships. Based on your preferences, we will also treat you holistically, focusing on your mental, emotional, relational, and spiritual health.  We collaborate with our clients to help them decrease conflict, improve communication, deepen intimacy, and reach any other goals they may have.
