The Hardley’s use an eclectic mix of therapy and coaching that involves ongoing connection, listening, and probing to determine the next best step toward meeting the client’s desired outcomes. Their conjoint services have been known to help couples experience greater connection, intimacy, communication, and ways of relating by learning strategies to navigate through the destructive cycles that create frustration for them. This non-traditional approach to meeting with couples, has not only shown effective with women, but has also allowed men to feel an even greater sense of support because another man is sitting in the room. Somehow when in this setting with the Hardley’s, both individuals feel a great sense of support, validation, and safety.
Terence & Keynia’s approach with families helps to empower them to manage their challenges with parenting, life cycle changes, and other life stressors. This duo is very acquainted with situations that often bring clients to therapy seeking help, and is committed to leading them toward their better days and relief.
