Marriage Counseling and Individual Psychotherapy

These formats provide all the benefits of counseling and therapy in either a one-to-one or couple setting. They help you sort-out your feelings so you can set goals and specify the problems you want to eliminate-even those of which you may be unaware. Your therapist is highly trained and, with you, designs a clear focused psychotherapeutic program to get you from where you are... to where you want to be.

The psychological counseling format varies with each person or couple but the treatment methods often used include the use of articles, progressive relaxation techniques, focused imagination rehearsal and goal highlighting, sculpting thought patterns that are out of control, emphasizing your strengths and abilities that may have been forgotten or neglected, audiotapes to use at home or in the car and sophisticated personality tests.
