Our Specialties & Services
We Work With Individuals, Couples, Families, & Groups
Together we create a plan to meet your wholeness from a strengths-based perspective. This is where we honor your resilience and the courage it takes to grow through your life. We hold you through the realities that exist in your everyday life that create a sense of dissonance that alter your presence in relationships at work, school, or at home. This may include coping strategies, authenticating your responses to meet your needs, emotional regulation, and lifestyle changes. In our sessions, we will cultivate a place for you to learn your essence and bring it alive in your full presence. Here we grow!
Often the tension that arises in relationships is caused by the lack of shared meaning and purpose. This will cause conflicts in people even when they are being authentic. Many couples do not realize that their goals and purposes are misaligned and are completely surprised when they begin to get resentful. Creating a shared meaning and purpose for life can heal a relationship. This can be done when the clients revise the narrative, their stories that explain who they are and how they arrived where they are in the present.
We ( Madeline and Miles) offer couples sessions and monthly host a Couples Dinner Therapy where several couples are invited to come and have discussions, listen and share experiences.
To deepen the conversation, we are utilizing a Fishbowl therapy approach, where some of the participants are seated in a small circle surrounded by a circle formed by the rest of the participants. These approaches can develop understanding and allow everyone to participate more effectively in the conversations. Participants have the opportunity to be heard and receive feedback and support from their peers and facilitating therapists.
The group process allows us to be revealed in a larger way while we recognize how similar we all are. Our intention is the creation of a safe space for the men and the women to share and be heard. The goal is to create conscious love stories that align so we can design what works for the win–win!
I have found that groups provide vivid containers for what needs attention in us. In groups, the focus is the whole, not the individual. Through the collective grows a shared knowledge that speaks through the participants. As respect and curiosity grow in the group we can cultivate a new way to listen and relate beyond defense and attempts to hide. Yes this will bring some grit, that’s how we do it.
