Embark Counseling, LPC, MA, FOLP, Counselor in Littleton
Do you and your partner struggle with positive communication, resolving problems effectively, intimacy, or lack of trust? Do you find you are repeating the same arguments over and over? Do you want to find more joy in your relationship? Do you wish you and your partner were on the same page when it comes to parenting? We can help you create the safe and positive relationship you are seeking. Or you could be looking for help with your children. If you and your family are dealing with the many challenges facing parents and children today, we are here to help.
Together, Diane Melancon and Darcia DeSalvo have a combined 50 years of family therapy experience. We have helped many couples work to rebuild their relationship, increase intimacy and trust. We have helped hundreds of families get back on track after experiencing the crisis of seriously out of control behaviors.
We believe therapy should be targeted with measurable goals. We believe we are in partnership with our clients to meet those goals. We believe therapy should have a beginning, a middle and an end. Embark with us as you learn to have the family relationships you wish to experience.
