If you have noticed recent changes in any of these conditions for over a two week time frame:
Many situations can cause these symptoms to occur
I have counseled many adults and adolescents nearly every business day for over thirteen years, most with success with their agreed-upon treatment goals.
EMDR - Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing
For people who have experienced Post traumatic Stress or anxiety-related symptoms, I am a Clinical EMDR Provider since 2005, and have witnessed many PTSD symptom-reducing and long-lasting results from clients who finished the EMDR therapy. Please contact this office for further information.
Couples and Family Therapy - $120 per session
As a Marriage & Family Therapist, I am a strong advocate to keep marriage intact and to dissect the ongoing problems that, quite often, systemically destroy relationships (i.e. disrespectful behaviors,, unresolved problems, behaviors learned from the past relationships and/or generations, communicating passively, aggressively or passive/aggressively).
During couples counseling, I assist couples with identifying their goals in therapy, identify their needs, their hurts, and propose the means to solve the issues at hand. I will assist the couple to becoming open to change and to guide the couple to seeing how change can occur in a small amount of time.
As individuals in marriage, many people have not had their needs met for a long time and have learned some unhealthy, ineffective, self-sabotaging, or abusive coping skills. Also, if one's needs (Financial, Communication, Sexual, Physical, Emotional, Belonging, etc.) are not met in marriage, a partner can likely build resentment and stray elsewhere to get their needs met and this is especially confronted and worked on in Couple's Therapy. Resentment kills relationships. These ineffective coping skills can be changed and do not have to be a life or death sentence to the marriage.
Sometimes, a metaphorical "tune-up" is needed in therapy and sometimes an "overhaul" is needed. People with successful marriages involve kindness, love, respect, a sense of belonging, being cherished, being heard, understood, and acknowledged. We can damage our marriage with our communication skills. Couple's therapy can be brief (4-10 sessions), but may need more sessions depending on the issues in the relationship.
As a Psychotherapist, I value marriage and I do everything possible to find what does and does not work (i.e communication, unresolved issues, hurt, mistreatment, broken promises, etc.) to assist in the healing.
How many divorced people do you know that still have considerable "baggage"? Whether an individual chooses to divorce or not, that individual will still have the pain from the marriage and actively participating during couple's therapy will often decrease the pain.
