APPROACHES TO TREATMENT

As a marriage counselor and individual psychotherapist, in private practice for over 17+ years, I have had experience working with many different types of difficulties and marital issues. I will help you transform your relationships (with yourself and others)! Over time, I've noticed that many of my couples were coming in with the same types of disarray. I want to help you overcome this negativity and live a more purposeful, self-aware, and intentional lifestyle. Therefore, I've created a unique transformational program with an individualized approach and system that will help hold you accountable for the agreements that are made during and between sessions.

CONNECT NOW! A Practical Activity Guide For Couples is a day-to-day, simple, and solution-focused “check-in” activity book that I offer to all of my clients during our initial intake consultation. In order to create a more desirable lifestyle, we must get really clear with ourselves and create specific steps to achieve our goals. I typically only accept 10 applicants per week because of my solution focused coaching and participation between sessions. 

As your therapist, I want to give you as much information or psycho-education as possible to help you develop skills that may enhance your partnerships and life even from the very first activity. Therefore, I have clients and couples who only need a few sessions to gain more focus and clarity to establish an agile plan of action.   

The sooner issues are addressed, the easier they are to work out. Sometimes, marriage counseling or couples therapy is all that is needed, providing a space for the couple to think and to explore their situation. Marriage Counseling can offer the opportunity to understand the deeper, more subconscious blockages and patterns in a relationship. The frustration of not feeling heard and understood can result in a detrimental outcome and is frequently linked to our earliest and most powerful emotional experiences.

Good news, these are learned behaviors. We can reprocess, become more self aware, set clear intentions, goals, and boundaries to overcome challenges. Typically, several agreements, resources, and tools are facilitated and made readily accessible through this approach to effectively help handle even the most complex cases.

Through mutual understanding, a couple often finds new strategies for enjoying their relationship. 

I look forward to helping you out! If I can't help, I bet that I will find someone who can...  Call me for a free phone consultation. 813-240-3237
