Customized Therapy

The therapeutic modalities we employ are based on the specific problem(s) presented and the needs and preferences of our clients. 

Most often a combination of approaches will be used, which are customized to the individual and most suited to the problem at hand. This will be based on the initial assessment and discussion with you. 


We also respect individual viewpoints, philosophies, values, traditions, beliefs and spiritualities.  We will incorporate any or all of these into the work we do with clients, as requested by the individual. 

In fact knowing about and incorporating these ideas and values into our work with you can often facilitate the effectiveness of the therapy.

We work in partnership with our clients to develop the approach that is best and most comfortable for you!

* As with all therapies, individual results my vary.
