The key to successful therapy is the relationship between the therapist and the client. We strive for authenticity, warmth, and empathy so that you can flourish in, and outside of, therapy.
It matters not what road we take but rather what we become on the journey.
KKJ highly values the need to balance acceptance with hard work when striving to make important life changes. Family dynamics shape how we choose relationships and deeply affect our own sense of self within relationships.
We use an active, problem solving approach in therapy to help you develop a plan for change. KKJ highly values the mind-body connection. This can be explored in a variety of ways in therapy including health and stress management techniques, mindfulness, and collaboration with other health care and holistic providers.
Couples counseling is a particularly difficult task to undertake. People often present to couples counseling when they are feeling desperate in their relationship. We strive to help you develop what Dr. John Gottman coined as a "Sound Relationship House." This involves trust and commitment, positive feelings towards your partner, sharing in life achievements, and conflict resolution.
With delicate issues at stake, therapy must be a good fit between professional and client. If KKJ is not the right fit for you, we can make referrals based on our knowledge and working relationships with others in the community.
