    Our Mission

    Our mission is to improve relationships and increase feelings of secure attachment (feeling safe in relationships, feeling reciprocated love and care, believing that everyone is worthy of love and everyone can feel the confidence in themselves to grow and explore the world).

    We're here for you.

    Our therapists understand the importance of the parent-child relationship. We value you, as a parent, as well as the unique perspective your child brings to the relationship.

    Some therapy focuses only on the child or only on supporting parents, we work with both. When you call to get your child into services we will work with you to establish a plan that involves you and your child, to help you feel better together, to understand each other.

    In the Circle of Security the authors talk about “Being With” your child. They describe this as the following – “we learn to manage feelings (for example, anger, sadness, fear, joy, shame, and curiosity) by experiencing the sponsorship of an adult who is with us in the feeling rather than staying outside the feeling and focusing only on our behavior.”
