Something's got to change.

You’ve got a nagging sense that something isn’t right.

You feel stressed, alone, and close to your breaking point.

Your inner voice tells you there’s got to be something more, something deeper.

You’ve read the recommended books and tried dozens of tools, but the peace that you feel is fleeting. You long to finally feel at home with yourself, to feel real connection, with your partner, with your kids or family, but you aren’t sure which direction will take you to authentic and lasting change.

Your relationship is strained  and you feel frustrated by the same arguments that never get resolved. You long for a closer emotional or sexual connection but everything leads you back to the same old habits. 

You need someone outside of your relationship, a professional, an experienced guide—who can help you get clearer on what’s happening and show you a way out of your struggles and into positive, new patterns.

We can help. Inside Passage therapists have proven success in research-based couples therapy methods such as Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), Gottman Method Couples Therapy, PREPARE-ENRICH, and Imago Relationship Therapy.

Whether you’re struggling to support your child, teen or young adult, or want to improve your relationship with a sibling, parent, or whole family, we can help.

Several of the therapists at Inside Passage have experience and training in parenting support such as Hand-in-Hand Parenting, as well as family therapy training.
