Child Therapy

We know that the happiness and well-being of your child is important to you. Children commonly face a number of issues and stressors that can be alleviated through therapy. Caring therapists will work with you to address your concerns and provide support and guidance every step of the way.

Effective child therapy utilizes principles of behavior analysis that place emphasis on improving the quality of the parent-child relationship and changing parent-child interaction patterns. Parents are taught specific skills to establish a healthy relating pattern while increasing their child’s desired behavior and decreasing problematic behavior. The therapist utilizes play therapy to observe the child and gain valuable information about the child’s behavior. In conjunction with functional assessments, this information is used to teach parents effective behavior management strategies which can be utilized in session and at home.

By using this child-friendly approach, we can provide you with strategies to address your specific concerns and improve your child's well being.

Couple and Family Therapy

Couple and Family therapy, also known as Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT), is a specialization of therapy designed to treat issues within the couple and family system. This specialization is typically provided by Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists (LMFTs).

There are a wide range of theories which can be utilized in MFT. Life Strategies utilizes behavioral science in MFT to tailor the most effective therapy. MFTs are trained specifically to decrease conflict and improve relationships within the context of the family or couple system. By utilizing behavioral science, therapists implement strategies to meet each individual and family goal. Building and sustaining healthy families is a core value of marriage and family therapy.

Couple therapy focuses on improving and developing stronger relationships by changing the interactions which harm the relationship. Effective techniques are taught to help the couple identify harmful patterns, reduce conflict, and learn how to reconnect. Working through frustrations concerning communication and conflict allows the couple a renewed freedom in their relationship and enhances their bond.
