Individual Therapy

Is a collaborative process between the therapist and the person in therapy. The main therapeutic goal of the therapist is to inspire change, assist in strengthening skills and improving quality of life. Therapy can help people overcome obstacles to their well-being. It can also increase positive feelings, such as compassion and self-esteem.

Marital & Family Therapy

Designed to identify patterns that contribute to problematic family relationships. The focus is around strengthening attachment and connections, as well as teaching skills such as emotion coaching and emotion validation. Family therapy can involve discussions and problem-solving sessions with the family. Ideally through open communication, relationships are strengthened within the family.

Workshops & Groups

Compassionate Connections is developing educational workshops for parents and caregivers, as well as for educators and other professionals who work with children, adolescents, and families. These groups and educational workshops will be focused around supporting individuals and families using practical and effective strategies that can be easily implemented into daily routines.
