Our counselors engage in regular continuing education and have expertise in treating a wide range of ages and issues. We take a holistic approach to counseling and work closely as a team with other community service providers to determine the most effective strategies to meet the needs of you and your family
Our counselors provide a warm and supportive environment in working with children, adolescents and adults experiencing a wide range of issues. Your counselor will meet with you to conduct a comprehensive intake and develop an individualized treatment plan.
Whether you are experiencing challenges or simply want to strengthen your relationship and improve intimacy, couples counseling can help. Your counselor will help you gain a greater understanding of yourself and your partner, heal relational wounds, identify and change problematic patterns, and develop communication and conflict resolution skills.
Our highly skilled family therapists provide support to families of all types and sizes. No matter which stage of the family life cycle you are in, or what challenges you face, we have counselors who can help. Family counseling can include traditional families, nontraditional families, step/blended families, and extended family (grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.). We also work with families who are co-parenting and wish to enhance cooperation and create an optimal environment for children of separation and/or divorce.
Having a neutral party can help you resolve family conflict in a productive and healthy manner. In mediation, our family members resolve disputes in a controlled and confidential environment. This treatment method is cost effective and recognized by the court system.
Parenting Coordination is a non-confidential, child-centered process for divorced and divorcing parents with high conflict. Our Parenting Coordinators help parents establish and maintain a healthy co-parenting relationship by reducing parental conflict and familial risk factors that influence a child’s post-divorce adjustment. Parenting coordinators document parental behaviors and compliance with court orders through memos and, if necessary, by testimony to the Court.
Parenting is a challenging job that few of us are truly prepared for – but you don’t have to do it alone. We offer individualized and group training and coaching sessions to give you the tools you need to build a happier, healthier, and more peaceful home with your kids.
Participants in group therapy benefit from the mutual support and learning that occurs from interaction with others who have shared experiences. Granato Group offers a variety of therapeutic and educational groups for individual adolescents, adults and couples.
