Providing therapy for couples, families, and children 

Treatment specialization includes:

Ms. Aporta practices couple and family therapy specializing in military and first responder families.  Her theoretical orientation is systemic.  Systems thinking involves the idea that an individual is affected by all of the people, environments, and social systems around him or her.  Our families, friends, teachers, and extended social circles affect our thinking and development.  When working with a client Ms. Aporta’s goal is to be as completely aware of the systems in which he or she functions.  Her therapy preferences include solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), narrative therapy, and mindfulness-based interventions.  Sometimes it is appropriate to combine aspects of different therapies to fit client needs.  Ms. Aporta works with clients in order to find the therapy that fits best with their problems, their personal preferences, and their world view.
