Narrative Therapy for Individuals, Couples and Families
Narrative Therapy is an effective, non-blaming approach to treatment. Through the lens of Narrative Therapy, problems are seen as separate and distinctly apart from an individual. A problem does not define a person. Therefore, the goal is not to transform who you are, but rather to transform the effect that the problem has on your life. Narrative therapy utilizes the power of people's personal stories to discover the life purpose of the narrator.
Therapy is offered for parents of children with normative development and parents with children who suffer from behavior and/or psychiatric challenges.
Abandonment Recovery Groups
Group mates discuss abandonment wounds and work side by side toward overcoming the aftermath of self sabotaging patterns. This group is led by Lara in collaboration with abandonment expert Susan Anderson, LCSW (abandonment.net)
