Psychotherapy Institute of Individual, Family, & Community Development

Welcome to the Psychotherapy Institute: We specialize in couples, parents, and children who are experiencing conflict and distress in their most important relationships. We realize that your time is precious, and we use structured interventions and education that pinpoint the root of problems and begin focusing immediately on their resolution, so that you can get back on-track with your life.

Services for Children, Teens, and Parents: If you are exhausted from arguing with, and worrying about your child or teen, and frustrated with the lack of support from the schools, we can help. We use a combination of behavioral, attachment, and positive parenting education and training approaches to help you repair your relationship with your child, stop the arguing, and get them back on-track to a successful and positive future. Your children, you, and your family deserve solutions from professionals who care and who know how to help troubled youth. See our sections under children for more information on what you can do now.

Services for Couples: If you are tired of arguing with your partner and feel like you are losing this most important relationship in your life, we can help you repair your relationship, manage conflict, and make your life dreams come true. We utilize the Gottman method to help you assess the problems in your relationship, identify the causes of these problems, and implement specific interventions that can help save your relationship. The Gottman approach has been widely studied, and has double the success rate of other approaches to relationship counseling. See our section under couples for more information on what you can do now.

Saturday and evening appointments are available.
Don’t continue in the unhappiness needlessly. Relationship problems rarely improve on their own. Call 925-777-9540, or send us an e-mail at and make an appointment today.
