“No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path.”
Each person takes their own path over their lifetime. That path can be straight, circular, or winding. It might be filled with anxiety, stress, loneliness, happiness, or love. This path begins at the center of the unalome spiral and represents the way we're trapped in our own fear, worry, and uncertainty.

Changing Point represents the path unfolding as the mind finds clarity and potential to free itself from the cycles of suffering.

All sessions are currently Telehealth. Hybrid (virtual/ telehealth to come).

More About Marriage and Family Therapy

According to the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT), in marriage and family therapy, the unit of treatment isn't just the person - even if only a single person is interviewed - it is the set of relationships in which the person is embedded.

Marriage and family therapy is:

  • brief

  • solution-focused

  • specific, with attainable therapeutic goals

  • designed with the end in mind.

Marriage and family therapists treat a wide range of serious clinical problems including depression, marital problems, anxiety, individual psychological problems, and child-parent problems.
