Our clients

Families

who-we-serve-icons_kidsFamilies have come from every state and several countries to complete our Corrective Attachment Therapy program. Many of them include children adopted from foster care programs or orphanages outside the United States. Some include biological children who have failed to develop secure attachments. These children lack the most important foundation for emotional health. They typically are oppositional, controlling, and mistrustful. Parents and siblings are often overwhelmed by the stress inherent in dealing with their challenging child.

Adults

who-we-serve-icons_adultsThe lessons we learn about ourselves and others from our early life experiences stay with us for a lifetime. They influence our self-esteem, feelings of security and our ability to maintain closeness with others. Adults visit us searching to heal the roadblocks to their growth and happiness. Most have difficulty maintaining intimate relationships or are experiencing repetitive destructive patterns in their lives.

Couples

who-we-serve-icons_couplesPursuing an intimate relationship is one of the most challenging paths for achieving emotional growth. Few other experiences provoke the depth of our fears, insecurities and vulnerabilities. The couples we see seek help in learning to communicate; resolve conflict; and, most importantly, to connect.

What is attachment?

It is the deep and enduring connection established between a child and caregiver in the first several years of life. However, more and more children are failing to develop secure attachments to loving, protective caregivers. These children are left without the most important foundation for healthy development and are at risk for:
  • low self-esteem
  • lack of self-control
  • antisocial attitudes and behaviors
  • aggression and violence
  • lack of empathy, compassion and remorse
