A Fresh Approach to

Family Therapy

Learn More

Active & Connected Family Therapy has helped individuals, couples, and families in Central Virginia since 2014. We prioritize cultivating authentic relationships with our clients in settings they feel most comfortable in – from welcoming indoor environments to walking trails. We see the most success when clients feel they’re in a safe space with someone who truly understands them.

We have a diverse team of professionals who bring different perspectives to our work, allowing us to connect with clients at every stage of their journey. One commonality we all share – and the driving force behind our success – is a passion for helping people. This is our core value and our primary mission.
