In other words, we understand the power of relationships and use them to help you accomplish YOUR goals. We can do this even when working with only one person. We are also a core mental health profession (1 of 5) and are able to practice at the master’s and PhD levels.
Because We Get Results! MFTs treat a wide range of clinical issues, ranging from those that are relational to depression, anxiety, and other psychological problems. There is also evidence that MFT is more effective than standard individual treatment for a variety of issues, including schizophrenia, mood disorders, alcohol and drug use disorders, conduct disorders, etc.
