Marriage and Relationship Counseling

How we can help…

We understand that couples often fall into the habit of hiding their feelings whenever they have conflicting desires and this always has a toxic effect on their relationship.

We are prepared to help the couple achieve their goals.

Clinical Modalities and Techniques

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
The Most Clinically Proven Therapy – CBT has been very thoroughly researched. In study after study, it has been shown to be as effective as drugs in treating both depression and anxiety. In particular, CBT has been shown to be better than drugs in avoiding treatment failures and in preventing relapse after the end of treatment. Other symptoms for which CBT has been shown to be its effective include problems with relationships, family, work, school, insomnia, and self-esteem. And it is usually the preferred treatment for addictions, shyness, headaches, panic attacks, phobias, post-traumatic stress, eating disorders, loneliness, and procrastination. It can also be effectively combined, with psychiatric medications if required. CBT is a clinically proven therapeutic approach. Hundreds of studies by research psychologists and psychiatrists provide evidence that CBT is effective for conditions such as these:

  • Depression and mood swings
  • Shyness and social anxiety
  • Panic attacks and phobias
  • Obsessions and compulsions
  • Chronic anxiety or worry
  • Post-traumatic stress symptoms
  • Eating disorders
  • Insomnia
  • Difficulty establishing or staying in relationships
  • Problems with marriage or other relationships you’re already in
  • Job, career or school difficulties
  • Feeling “stressed out” or “stuck”
  • Insufficient self-esteem (accepting or respecting yourself)
  • Inadequate coping skills, or ill-chosen methods of coping
  • Passivity, procrastination and “passive aggression”
  • Substance abuse, co-dependency and “enabling”
  • Trouble keeping feelings such as anger, sadness, fear, guilt, shame, eagerness, excitement, etc., within bounds.
  • Over-inhibition of feelings or expression

Rational Emotive Therapy

RET is a practical, action-oriented approach to coping with problems and enhancing personal growth. RET places a good deal of its focus on the present: on currently held attitudes, painful emotions and maladaptive behaviors that can sabotage a fuller experience of life. RET also provides people with an individualized set of proven techniques for helping them to solve problems. RET practitionerâs work closely with people, seeking to help uncover their individual set of beliefs (attitudes, expectations and personal rules) that frequently lead to emotional distress. RET then provides a variety of methods to help people reformulate their dysfunctional beliefs into more sensible, realistic and helpful ones by employing the powerful RET technique called “disputing.” Ultimately, RET helps people to develop a philosophy and approach to living that can increase their effectiveness and happiness at work, in living successfully with others, in parenting and educational settings, in making our community and environment healthier, and in enhancing their own health and personal welfare. We have found that RET is very helpful for those who lack spirituality in their lives.

Psychodrama

This approach involves role-play between two or more people to foster insight and emotional awareness, expression and healing. For example, I could play the role of your sister, and you could say things to “her” that may be difficult or seem inappropriate to say in “real life.” Then we could switch roles. You could tune in to “her” perspective — aiming to see yourself from a new angle. The experience is frequently meaningful and surprising.

In a powerful variation, we might suggest you speak with the Higher Self of your sister (or another important person). This provides an opportunity for you to experience warmth and understanding from her — at a level that she may be unready to provide in her everyday state of consciousness.

Hypnotherapy

We are proud to offer Hypnotherapy as another method to achieve desired results in therapy. Hypnotherapy has been proven to be effective with many issues. Heiko Ganzer is a Board certified Hypnotherapist.

What is hypnotherapy

The term “hypnosis” is derived from the Greek word hypnos, meaning “sleep.” Hypnotherapists typically use scripts that bring about deep relaxation and an altered state of consciousness, also known as a trance. Many people routinely experience a trance-like state while they are watching television or sitting at a red light. A person in a trance or deeply focused state is unusually responsive to an idea or image, but this does not mean that a hypnotist can control the person’s mind and free will. On the contrary, hypnosis can actually teach people how to master their own states of awareness. By doing so they can affect their own bodily functions and psychological responses.

Hypnosis has been proven to be highly effective in treating:

  1. Smoking (Texas A&M and others)
  2. Weight Loss (Oxford University and others)
  3. Pain Management (Stanford University and others)
  4. Drug, Alcohol, & Gambling Addictions (Ohio State University and others)
  5. Healing Faster (Harvard University)
  6. Eating Disorders
  7. Phobias
  8. Sexual Addictions and issues
  9. Sports Focus and improvement
  10. Self Improvement – Concentration, Memory and Test Anxiety

What is EMDR?

EMDR is a quick and powerful therapeutic method, proven by many research studies to be highly effective and long-lasting. Unlike many other forms of therapy, EMDR can be done with a separate independent therapist as an EMDR can easily be done as an adjunct to therapy you may already be doing elsewhere. I have successfully used this versatile technique to help people recover from such diverse problems as low self-esteem, PTSD, procrastination, sexual and physical abuse, performance anxiety, and catastrophes like 9/11.
