Person-Centered Therapy is a humanistic therapy that views the counseling relationship as the agent of change. Founded in empathy, congruence, and non-judgement, Person-Centered Therapy holds the belief that people are intrinsically motivated to better themselves.
Emotion-Focused Therapy is another integrated therapeutic approach that can be used for both couples and individuals. Its foundation is that people tend to either withdraw or pursue in relationships with others which can cause significant distress. EFT enables couples and individuals to learn their patterns, why they have these patterns, and how to create different, more healthy ones.

Mindfulness is the practice and ability to stay in the present moment. Mindfulness helps individuals separate from their thoughts and feelings in order to gain relief from what is causing distress.
Family Systems approach recognizes that, even if an individual is coming into counseling, they are part of a larger family system. Family Systems aims to help individuals differentiate from their families in order to be whole individuals and not fused with other’s emotions.
