Marriage and family therapy is a style of therapy that works with individuals, couples, and families to nurture change and development. This method of therapy views change in terms of the systems of interactions between people and family members, friends, culture, society, and the world. It focuses on how elements of trauma, mental illness, general and medical conditions, racial identity, gender, sexual orientation, personality, career, academics, and more can affect a person’s life.

"Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP) is a method that draws upon the natural wisdom of the body (posture, movement, and the nervous system) to tap into the innate drive in all of us to heal, adapt, and develop new capacities. The effects of trauma, neglect, and abusive or emotionally painful relationships with childhood caregivers are held in our nervous systems, posture, and movement habits, as well as in unresolved painful emotions and limiting beliefs. To change these patterns, SP teaches clients to learn to mindfully follow the natural intelligent processes of body and mind. This can accelerate health and lead to more lasting change."
