Many people come to therapy to get relief from uncomfortable symptoms like worry/anxiety, depression, or stress due to difficulty in relationships, work, etc. Others may come at the suggestion of concerned physicians or friends and family members. At C & E we believe symptoms are the culmination of our bodies physiological bandwidth being maxed out and need for relief. At our practice, we address relevant aspects of what brings you into therapy by looking at the whole person. Population specific work includes LGBTQ+, First Generation Immigration and Family, Race and Identity formation.
We acknowledge therapy is hard work and, as such, it takes time, trust, risk, and vulnerability. The dissonance between the person we strive to be and the person we are is what brings up the symptoms of anxiety and depression, and we recognize our work starts with symptom management and creating necessary lifestyle changes in order to live the life we want.
Couples therapy is most effective when both members of the couple feel safe, supported and understood. "Good" couple’s work is often the outcome of both members of the couple doing the work necessary to get to know themselves as individuals, so they can understand the part each plays in the relationship’s dynamic.
Improving communication is a clear goal of the work, but if we don’t know what we need to talk about, improving "how" only works to an extent.
We take an Emotion-Focused approach to t where we support couples in learning how to communicate from each other’s perspective to foster growth and collaboration in the partnership.
