We offer a variety of treatment methods, including couples therapy, workshops, and groups. Therapy can help you and your partner learn to communicate effectively, enjoy intimacy, rekindle passion, and discover happiness in and through your relationship. Helping people to resolve marital problems and enhance their relationships has been central to FTIA's mission since 1978.

Our specialized ADD treatment program helps children, adolescents, and adults with ADD (with and without hyperactivity) learn to use their unique traits as strengths. Testing, medication, individual and/or group counseling, and coaching are all available.

Many individuals with ADD are versatile, spontaneous, good in crisis situations, and are highly creative. Our program will help you manage disruptive behaviors, and focus and maximize your natural talents. We work with the individual and with spouses and families to help them understand, support, and help their loved ones with ADD and ADHD succeed in school, relationships, life, and in appropriate careers.

This unique program is designed to meet the work-centered needs that so many of our clients have brought to therapy sessions through the years. Corporate executives, professionals, dual-career couples, entrepreneurial couples, people involved in running a family business, and others frequently find themselves with emotional, relationship, and systemic issues related to the workplace. When therapy seems too personally oriented and human resources or mediation teams too impersonal, ECI is a wonderful opportunity to find an advocate, trainer, and coach to:

  • Resolve conflict in the workplace

  • Communicate effectively

  • Facilitate productive systems changes

  • Make work a generative part of a balanced life
