Counseling Services

Our LMFT’s and LMFT Associates each hold a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and are professionally trained in a “systemic” approach.

Systemic family therapists observe problems within the context of the larger scope of the family.

In operating through this approach, the Olive Branch therapists believe the source of the problem lies within the family unit as a whole, not merely the individual.

Therapists using this approach are able to help families and individuals obtain long-lasting change through uncovering and altering patterns that cause distress to the family unit.

Our LPC’s and LCSW’s each hold Master’s degrees and specialize in psychotherapy services and individual interventions to help clients by focusing on mental wellness strategies.

They provide psychotherapeutic treatment to address emotional and behavioral problems which may be rooted in a larger systemic origin.
