Services

Get the happiness you want and deserve. We’re guided by the belief that the ultimate goal of your life is to be happy. We strive to help you transform. Helping you with the issues that you are facing & helping you get unstuck.

TCG Child & Family Institute counseling therapy was started because often times, entire families need support while trying to communicate, learn, and create boundaries.

Understanding that the teenage years and adolescence can be hard. It’s difficult to deal with all the changes. Changes in your body, in self-identity, relationships, etc. The pressure to perform. Emerging feelings of sexuality.

We will help you restore the close emotional connections that you want and long for. You will learn to recognize the dance of communication that keeps you distant from your partner. You can save your relationship. More Relationships End Than Need Too.

Infertility changes you. Physically, emotionally, socially, martially and financially. The experience is filled with stress. Who & how much to tell? How to cope with the fertile world? Knowing how to communicate with loved ones & health care providers? How to juggle treatment, personal life and, above all, how to bear the interminable waiting?

Hypnotherapy (hypnosis) is the use of intense concentration & focused attention to achieve a heightened state of awareness. The hypnotic state allows you to explore painful thoughts, feelings, and memories that might have been otherwise hidden from your conscious mind due to the brain’s defense mechanisms.

This is a very difficult time for everyone. Especially those with preexisting anxiety or trauma. Even those without a history of anxiety, depression or trauma can start experience the effects of the current health crisis because of all the unknowns. How long will this last? When will my life get back to normal?

Assessment consists of a Clinical face-to-face, in-person interview and collateral interviews with significant others. A psychosocial history is obtained to include presenting problem, including a discussion of pertinent and detailed information describing contributing factors, incidents and issues that precipitated assessment.
