Couples please know there is no shame in attending therapy. The shame and misfortune is not attending. When you come to couples’ therapy it says I care enough about my partner and myself to seek support. At times we need a touch up, we need to become more aware of the maladaptive patterns we may have fallen into as a couple and restart and restore our relationship. Effective communication skills, listening skills and conflict management are some of the keystone areas of CT we will focus on to rebuild the US in CoUpleS. Please click on the link “Couples Therapy” to learn about our weekend retreats. We also offer private in office services for couples.

You have served us, now let us serve you. HUGS embraces all members from all branches of the US military. HUGS fosters a safe environment to process deployment/s, family reunification, adjustments to the community and the civilian world. We process grief and loss, injuries seen and unseen, stress management and PTSD. Tricare is proudly accepted.
