Tides Will Change

Counseling & Psychotherapy

Counseling and psychotherapy although different, are both forms of talk therapy that may focus on specific issues or problems that can help you grow emotionally and make changes in your life in an active and affirming way that fosters a sense of safety and trust.

Psychotherapy however, is distinguished by a deeper level focus of psychological, emotional, and behavioral experiences where the therapist is advanced in their use of language, skillsets, interpretations, and interventions to help clients increase self-awareness, gain insight, and identify root causes of issues for long lasting changes for improved emotional and mental wellbeing.

Marriage & Couples Counseling

Some clients seek marriage or couples counseling sometimes after a crisis as a "last resort" attempt to salvage or end their relationship. We as therapists know that engaging in therapy for support before a crisis can significantly improve intimacy, resolve irritations, and promote healthy connectedness and effective communication. Marriage and couples counseling offers a neutral and safe space to explore your issues and help develop or improve communication, listening and negotiation skills, and encourage your ability to resolve problems effectively. Pre-marital counseling may be helpful to focus on values, improve communication, identify conflict styles and resolution abilities, have a safe space to talk openly and honestly, about current and future expectations.
