  • Relationships & Couples Therapy

  • Treating Survivors (strategies for working with survivors of emotional and physical trauma, including abandonment, abuse, neglect, ACOA issues, and victims of sexual abuse)

Who’s In Charge?

This workshop is based on Richard Loebl’s unique “Who’s in Charge?” model. The workshop provides easy-to-use tools that are highly effective in building self-esteem and creating successful relationships and careers. You’ll learn how to identify and integrate your internal parts: The loving and responsible Adult, the Inner Critic, the Teenager who is often lost and angry, and the Inner Child. The workshop provides educational information, self-help tools, and action methods, such as role-playing and psychodrama, used to empower your personal growth.

The LATE Men

The LATE Men are adult men who are stuck developmentally and function as Lost, Angry Teenagers. This workshop addresses the unique concerns of men today – their relationships, career issues, and their roles as husbands and fathers, in work and in their communities.  Men’s lives are more challenging today than at any time in history.  Role relationships between men and women have never been more complicated and demanding.  Financial demands and job stress have never been so difficult to manage.  The LATE Men operate on the old toxic code of masculinity, and they tend to self-sabotage.  Men today can learn to manage their lives and relationships more effectively, and with greater personal satisfaction and peace of mind.
