Knowing why is not always important. Knowing HOW lets you create solutions.

Client Services

Individual Sessions

EBCA provides an opportunity for quick and effective therapy with their session structure. Our individual sessions are not the typical 50-minute hour that you attend once a week for six months. Instead, we offer longer sessions that reduce the overall length of treatment.

The initial interview is 90 minutes, and then we normally follow up with 10-12 sessions that last 75 minutes. Many of our clients achieve their short-term goals during this period. Afterword, we schedule follow-up sessions at one month, three months, and six months, if needed.

Once you are a client with us, you can always return for followup or booster sessions.

Family and Couples Sessions

The initial couples assessment is 90 minutes. Subsequent sessions normally run 75-90 minutes.

We find that two longer sessions per month are more effective than having shorter sessions every week. It's more cost effective for you, too.

Extended Sessions

Extended sessions are great for people who are interested in pursuing therapy but don't have flexible work schedules, who need to travel a long distance to the Center, or want faster results.

Our extended sessions is unique to the treatment model we use, and find them very effective because we can address multiple issues in a single session, rather than over a period of weeks.

These sessions are typically 4-6 hours. As an option, you can book sessions on consequent days, or multiple sessions in a single week. This focused time enables you to create a flow in your therapeutic process, more quickly establish a rapport with your therapist, and achieve your therapy goals more quickly. After an extended session, we will give you tools and homework that help you continue your progress.


Our groups usually consist of 4-8 people who meet for 75-120 minutes, depending on the participants.

We cover a variety of subjects in a group setting:

  • LGBT teen issues

    Teens struggle with different issues when questioning their sexual identity, including acceptance, the coming out process, and relationships. This group helps teens cope with these and other related issues. Five-week group.

  • Stress Management

    Stress comes in many forms. We often feel stress because we care about something. Unfortunately, stress can cause anxiety, health problems, and relationship difficulties. By participating in this group, you will receive effective, useful tools to dial down your stress and a nice reminder that you're not alone in your worries.

  • Bringing Baby Home

In this 12-hour course taught over two days, you will develop new skills and techniques to ease the transition from being a couple to becoming parents. This workshop's unique approach focuses on building a strong emotional bond between you and your partner so you can succeed as a parent.
