Domestic Violence

Whether you are the person being hurt, or the person doing the hurting, we can help. We have years of experience helping people to understand what domestic violence is, and how to deal with it. Most abusers do not think of themselves as being an abuser. Excuses are made, but the struggle over power in the relationship continues to inflict harm and abuse on the partner or children. If you seek therapy before it is too late, you will gain a sense of control and dignity in your relationship without losing your loved ones. If you are being hurt, you must seek help now. If you allow the abuser to continue, you are running the risk of being seriously hurt and/or allowing your children to be emotionally and physically harmed. We will enable you to gain the strength to problem-solve reasonable solutions to your situation. We provide a safe, nurturing environment with strict privacy and confidentiality.

Post-Traumatic Stress

Do you have flashbacks of a terribly frightening event? Do you suffer from depression or have high levels of anxiety when you experience similar situations to your traumatic event? Are you easily startled? If so, you may be suffering from post-traumatic stress. Our well-trained therapists have the education and training to give you back your sense of safety. Our well-proven cognitive and behavioral techniques can end or alleviate these painful symptoms and let you return to a sense of normalcy.

Divorce Coaching

Would you like your divorce to be respectful and dignified? By addressing the emotional component of the divorce, our therapists will help you and your spouse communicate in a calmer, more respectful and dignified manner. The divorce becomes a problem to be solved rather than a contest with no winners. Less confrontation means less stress. If children are involved, the non-combative atmosphere will enable you and your spouse to practice cooperative teamwork for the benefit of the children.

Stress Management

Understand what stress is and how to deal with it in your personal and professional life. Learn what stress does to your health and your relationships in the work environment and at home.

Anger Management

Verbal or physical assaultive behavior results when you focus your angry feelings onto others. You have a right to your feelings, but you are responsible and accountable for your feelings and your behavior. Don't wait until the courts force you to seek therapy or until your partner walks out. We will enable you to deal with your feelings, the control issues in the relationship, and gain control of your feelings rather than allow your anger to destroy your relationship.

We will enable you to develop effective stress management techniques, reduce your frustrations, and gain a sense of peace in your life. Let us guide you in dealing with depression and anxiety in your work environment.

Sexual Dysfunction

Marriages often suffer from an unsatisfactory sex life. An evaluation to discover the relationship problems which prevent the couple from developing a satisfactory sexual relationship, result in ways to generate the excitement which produces sexual fulfillment. We will assist you in regaining a sense of excitement in your relationship and guide you in overcoming obstacles to your sexual fulfillment.

Sexual Addictions

Emotional problems have many various expressions and sex is just one of them. Pornography, hyper-sexuality, extra-marital affairs, and excessive masturbation are avenues that people find to deal with stress and poor self-esteem. Many individuals are introduced to sex before they are emotionally mature enough to deal with it. As a result, emotional problems develop and a person's primary means to feel good about themselves or cope with stress is through sexual expression. We can help men and women to overcome sexual addictions in counseling and psychotherapy. You can learn how to relate to the opposite sex in a healthy manner, deal with self-issues in a productive and more fulfilling way, and discover more effective methods of dealing with emotional stress.

Pre-Marital Counseling

An important component of the pre-marital counseling program is an online survey you each complete in about 30-45 minutes. PREPARE/ENRICH is not just any survey. The items you respond to are based on research and are intended to help you identify the unique strengths and potential growth areas of your premarital relationship.
