We believe that the most important part of effective therapy is the relationship between client and therapist. Each of the therapists here are warm, human, highly-skilled professionals. We don't believe in judgment, telling you what's best for your life, or applying shame. We know that people do their best when they feel safe, listened to and that they matter.
Although every VFT therapist brings these qualities, we know that finding the one you click with is a more specific combination between client and therapist. For that reason we encourage you to take the time to read the therapist bios and decide who feels like the right fit for you. If you aren't sure and want to dip your toe in the water, any of our therapists will be happy to meet with you for a no charge 15 minute consultation.

Most people will at some point in their life face an obstacle that feels too difficult to tackle alone. Individual therapy services can be helpful in identifying and addressing these concerns, whether they're related to a suffering relationship, mental health concerns, grief, trauma, identity questions or the stresses of your daily life. Our goal is to create a safe, supportive environment for you to explore these concerns and find solutions to the challenges that brought you to therapy. Whatever the issue may be, we can help and we're happy to walk this path with you.
Reaching out for relationship support can be hard to do. People are often ill-equipped to deal with the challenges of "couple-hood" and a therapist can help you to navigate these issues. Some of the common concerns of couples today include issues of fidelity, juggling the couple relationship along with the demands of children and careers, and sexual difficulties. We can help with these problems and others. Therapists are often asked, "What if my partner doesn't want to come?" If this is your situation, consider therapy as a resource for yourself individually, until the time at which your partner may choose to join you. If you define "couple" in an unconventional way, you will find your therapist to be open-minded, aware, supportive and professional.
Family life today is more challenging than ever. Workplace demands, separated/divorced/blended families, busy kids and busy parents... how do we find the time to manage it all? Family therapy can be a highly effective way to deal with the concerns that affect the unit as a whole because family therapy looks at the whole system, not just the individual. In fact, research has demonstrated that even individuals benefit from quicker progress when treated within the context of the family. Whether your family is in the midst of a tough time or anticipating a challenge or transition up ahead, we can help to smooth the road.
Groups and Workshops
From time to time we offer groups and workshops. If you have an idea, are interested in being part of a group for individuals or couples, or would like to request a workshop, please contact us today.
Critical Incident Stress Management
We have trained and experienced providers of Critical Incident Stress Debriefings. After a distressing incident, you as a leader or your group may need support. We understand the need for timely and appropriate response to these situations, and that as a leader you may be feeling overwhelmed and unsure of what to do. If you think your group may benefit from a debriefing, or are unsure and would like to talk to an experienced facilitator, contact us today.
