My Therapy Services
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), and I follow a systems method of treatment.
This means that I work with individuals, families, and couples, but that I always view our work through the system around an issue. For example, if as a parent you are concerned about your child’s ADHD, I would diagnose and create a treatment plan around helping your family better adapt to this diagnosis. Unsure about what this means?

According to AAMFT’s website, people chose LMFT’s to help them because of the brief, solution-focused treatment they provide. Check out their website for some pretty interesting statistics including:
“Marital and family therapy requires LESS time (only 9 to 12 sessions on average) than the typical individual treatment to see results.”

Are you unsure about therapy? Maybe you have never tried it or you are not sure if your family will get anything out of it. Maybe you have a jam packed schedule and the idea of having to get everyone to a therapy office once a week is daunting.

About Kelley Eubanks, LMFT
I have been clinically trained to ensure that each person in the room feels heard, cared about, and comfortable to share their thoughts and feelings. I will challenge each individual involved so that new opportunities may be created for change.
My method is different than most therapists you meet. In working with a systemic model of therapy, I look for patterns of behavior and help interrupt those patterns and create new patterns. The story your family has been telling about you, your parents, your siblings, or anyone for that matter can be re-written with some work around understanding.
