Heather M Ehinger, EdD, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Westport
We become a TEAM to build HOPE: for peace of mind, love, connection and your definition of success. Find SOLUTIONS to every day life challenges so you can go from chaos and crisis to peace and harmony; Solutions that make sense and meet your individual and collective needs. Create POSSIBILITIES that life will not only be better but joyful again (or for the first time). Together we can face a variety of struggles such as divorce, trama, romance, parenting, addictions and co-dependence, sexual/ identity issues and teen acting out behaviors. With collective insights and effort we can build your intentional life.
Our strategy for success: Partnering in a solution focused manner with a belief in your internal strength rather than a pathology based philosophy. I believe in a your ability to change and grow and I collaborate with you to look at family structure, internal wounding, past trauma, generational influence and current functioning.
Our relationship is the key to our success. I am direct yet compassionate, respectful and accepting. Proefessional training, personal experience, humor, creativity and flexibility are the ingredients for our success in working towards and meeting your personal goals. My staff and I work with you in mind. Lets do this, together!
