How we approach healing


At Forbes Individual & Family Therapy, we specialize in individual, couples, and family therapy with a deep-rooted focus on self-awareness and relationship enhancement. Grounded in psychodynamic principles, our approach delves into the intricate dynamics of the unconscious mind, exploring how past experiences shape present behaviors and relationships.

In our individual therapy sessions, our skilled therapists provide a nurturing space for self-exploration and personal growth. Through introspective dialogue and insight-oriented techniques, clients gain a deeper understanding of themselves, uncovering underlying patterns and fostering inner healing.

For couples seeking to strengthen their bond, our couples therapy offers a transformative journey towards deeper connection and mutual understanding. Drawing from psychodynamic theories, we help couples explore the subconscious influences on their relationship dynamics, facilitating open communication and conflict resolution.

Family therapy at our practice embraces the systemic perspective, recognizing the interplay of individual members within the family unit. Our therapists guide families in unraveling generational patterns, improving communication, and fostering cohesion, leading to greater harmony and resilience. We believe in the power of self-awareness to transform relationships and lives. Take the courageous step towards self-discovery and relationship growth by scheduling a free consultation with us today. Together, we'll embark on a journey of insight, healing, and connection.
