...psychological services to foster developmental and emotional growth for children, adolescents, adults, parents, couples, and families.
Why do we use attachment theory to guide all of our work? Attachment theory and research have done a world of good at illuminating human growth and thriving. As David Wallin puts it in Attachment in Psychotherapy: a person's "particulars of attachment history that determine how freely...the self can be accessed and integrated. To what extent can patients experience their bodily sensations, feel their emotions, think their own thoughts? And how effectively can they integrate these...for example, by bringing their thoughts to bear on their feelings? Answers to these questions can...clarify what our patients may need most from the new attachment relationship we are attempting to provide" 2007, Guilford Press, p. 62. At Greenhouse, we attempt to provide the new attachment relationship either by deepening an existing family relationship (partner with partner or child to parent) or by utilizing the deepening relationship to the therapist.
