Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Flori Willard "As a Marriage and Family Therapist I provide specialized couple, family and individual counseling. If you find your relationship in a never ending negative cycle of criticism, arguing, jealousy, having affairs and feel emotionally disconnected, I can help. By taking a 360 degrees look at your relationship, identifying strengths and weaknesses, being able to recognize, prevent and replace negative patterns with healthy ones, the emotional connection and intimacy, once lost, can be rekindled.

In addition, I provide individual counseling that can help you manage depression, anxiety, and stress as well as help you work through specific challenges and lead you to a better state of emotional well being. 

If you feel like you have tried everything on your own but nothing has worked, I would like to help. Together I can help you help you bring contentment and joy back into your life."
