Inner Purpose offers services to aid couples and families who are dealing with a variety of challenges. Several of our therapists on staff are trained to offer effective couples and family therapy both in-person and via telehealth.
Couples counseling is best performed when both parties are interested in positive change and open to self-reflection within their role of the relationship. Your couples counselor remains partial and objective as possible when evaluating and discussing the recurring issues in your relationship. Our couples counselor use active listening, reflecting, and hands-on activities for improving your communication, boundary setting, and provides suggestions for more ways to facilitate and maintain an ongoing emotional connection. Each therapist operates from a trauma-informed approach to ensure the whole person and their background is taken into consideration. Your couples counselor may also recommend each partner participating in individual therapy as well so you can address ongoing negative thought patterns, emotional reactions, and unhelpful behaviors that may be affecting your relationships and other areas of your life.
The goal of family therapy is to make sure each member is equally heard in a safe space where they an openly express their feelings. Family background, relationship dynamics, and healthy boundaries are often discussed. Individual therapy is also recommended for each individual to be able to address their own issues that may be affecting the family dynamic. Your therapist will explore systemic issues and explain how each member of the family has a vital role in positive change. This is usually addressed by examining the family’s methods of communication with one another, any past trauma that has been experienced, and everyone’s goals for the future. Your therapist will use a variety of techniques to teach healthy communication and feeling expression.
Telehealth sessions will be held via video chat using our HIPPA-complaint and easy to use platform that can be accessed by phone or computer. Our system will send out appointment reminders via text and email with your secure session link. Our top priority is to help you feel most comfortable receiving therapy in the environment that is best suited for you.
