Welcome! You've come to the right place!

 

We know it's not easy to find a therapist you vibe with. 

But we're glad you're here! Founder and Primary Therapist India Simms opened The Haven Center for Therapy & Wellness in 2019 to provide a safe and judgment-free zone where people can be fully transparent and get to the root of their issues. During India’s 10 year+ tenure as a psychotherapist, she has helped more than 1,000 individuals and couples in various clinical settings.

What to expect from couples therapy

The Haven Center takes an educational approach to couples’ therapy. We're not here to scold nor choose sides. We spend the first session getting a timeline of your relationship and its significant events. We explore everything from the time you met, to the birth of a child to an act of infidelity. We uncover patterns in your communication to start creating a path to solutions. During the second and third sessions, we spend time exploring each partner’s individual triggers and emotional wounds. In following sessions we discuss how to manage conflicts and strengthen your bond. Couples therapy is a journey that doesn’t have a one-size fit all timeline.

What to expect from individual therapy

Individual therapy begins with an exploration of your presenting problem and sharing of information about your life and events/people that shaped your experiences. After setting goals for treatment, we will begin to explore ways to process or address your problem. Some clients like to learn tools to address distressing symptoms and some clients prefer therapy sessions for processing through their thoughts.

Haven Center Values:

  1. We use humor as a tool to help open the lines of communication. Once a couple stops laughing with each other, intimacy and bonding are lost. We help you get your giggle back—well, we encourage laughter in our therapy sessions.
  2. We integrate mind-body or integrative psychology with Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), EFT Tapping, and meditation. That means that we can help you tap into your concerns in a way that feels authentic to you.
  3. We create a strength-based, safe place that’s LGBTQ+-affirming, kink-friendly, sex-positive, and nurturing for all couples.

Who Should Contact Us:

We serve individuals and couples from a myriad of professional and cultural backgrounds.

Their concerns are unique to their life experiences and may require a tailored approach to helping them work through their issues. The most common problems that couples work on run the gamut from sexual and communication problems to couples considering divorce.

If you're reading this, there is something inside of you that is telling you that you need help. People can make meaningful changes with the right amount of support and unpacking of the layers. The Haven Center for Therapy is equipped with the expertise, patience, and tools to help you find solutions.
