Individual Counseling

Whether or not you are currently in a committed relationship, Imago Therapy can help.  We believe that when relationship patterns are not functional, it can manifest as depression, anxiety, work-related stress, and symptoms of physical illness that may not be recognized by doctors.  Imago Therapy can help individuals discover and re-frame dysfunctional patterns from the past that are sabotaging their current relationships, and begin a journey of self-discovery and personal growth.  

Imago Couples Therapy

Unlike other therapy models, Imago Therapy does not focus on solving the presenting problems; it is about Restoring Connection! We believe that conflict is a sign that growth is trying to happen, and that frustrations are the words we use to express our deepest unmet needs.  By uncovering our unmet needs, we are able to re-frame our frustrations into requests that our partner can hear and then act upon.   

EMDR for Trauma & Anxiety

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an evidence based, integrative therapeutic approach that was developed to help deal with traumatic events or PTSD.  It has been used to help with a variety of anxiety-based issues, such as performance anxiety, chronic pain, addictions, panic attacks, grief and loss, and stress reduction.  It involves a standard 8 step protocol that combines elements of several psychotherapeutic approaches.  For more information, please visit: www.emdria.org

Releasing Trapped Emotions with Essential Oils

Everything has a frequency or vibrational energy, including our thoughts, feelings, words, and body organs.  Repeated exposure to negativity can lead to trapped emotions, a low frequency, and subsequent physical and emotional dis-ease. Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils have High Frequencies and therefore have the ability to release trapped emotions that are lodged in the corresponding organs.  

Marathon Sessions

For couples seeking intensive private therapy in a short time, marathon sessions can provide up to 15 hrs of individualized therapy over 3 days.  Great for couples with a rotating work schedule or those who don't have time for regular visits but who want to see a big change in a short time and are not comfortable in groups.
