Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Friel "I have an ecological-systemic approach to individual and family problems. I help my clients examine and digest the family of origin from which they came, and how those neural networks (templates) continue to cause them problems in the here-and-now. In couples work, I focus on helping couples use conflict--a normal part of all romantic relationships--to increase growth, intimacy, and sexual passion way beyond the honeymoon phase. People's inability to manage their own anxiety is one of the most important reasons why romantic relationships fail, and they don't have to if the couple is willing to tolerate the discomfort of growth."
