For the ancient Greeks, the psyche was known as both mind and emotion, located in the body where an individual’s sense of self was experienced as thought and feeling.
Today, Crossings continues to approach the mind, body, and spirit as interconnected and whole. We recognize that problems of a physical nature can be closely linked with emotional problems in the present and from the past. Similarly, people living with partners and families experience problems both as individuals and through their relationships. Therefore, Crossings offers psychotherapy as a healing practice for individuals and families, with a special welcome to families with adolescents and children.
The Family Therapist at Crossings approaches her clients and the stories of their lives with respect, and without blame. She considers each adult or young person she consults with as an individual, viewing them separately apart from their problems. Working in collaboration with her clients, she considers them as the experts on their lives, with many skills, capabilities, values, and strengths to draw upon.
Most sessions are 60 minutes, and initial parenting consultations are usually 90 minutes.
