Relationship Counseling

If you have recently discovered an infidelity in your marriage, the betrayal and confusion you feel can be devastating to your relationship with your spouse and to yourself. Maturity connects having an authentic self that has been able to develop adequate coping skills; a sense of "agency" of the self that had been lost to the addiction; the ability to tolerate emotional pain with the knowledge that all internal states are transitory; the development of healthy inter-personal relationships, and a sense of purpose in living.
Situations such as a family crisis, separation, divorce, a personal crisis, extreme stress and health concerns, as examples, requires a more robust level of care that can be provided by a treatment model that offers greater frequency and convenience.

Relationship and family problems; sexual difficulties; divorce support for adults and children; symptoms of anxiety and depression; problems with academic and occupational performance, career advancement, and work-related stress; gay and lesbian issues; helping individuals establish and maintain their recovery from substance abuse; attention deficit disorder; anger management; and adjustment difficulties of childhood and adolescence.
Our therapists are committed to your growth and development, and aim to fulfill your therapeutic goals by helping you strengthen your emotional well-being, improve your divorce therapy interpersonal relationships, gain insight and understanding around your triggers and reactions, and implement the necessary tools for you to be in control of your life.

Merely teaching the couple to phrase things differently reinforces the false and damaging notion that your partner is responsible for your core value and vice versa.

To explore options for non-monogamy that feel safe and minimize jealousy or threatening feelings, we assess the relationship in general, including items such as domestic chores, work life, finances, routines, shared pastimes, individual health issues, friends and social support, and relationships with the "in-laws." Next, we explore each partner's view of the couple's current sex life - the type, frequency, duration, sexual roles, and levels of satisfaction.
In examining your family of origin, as well as your history of relationships with peers and romantic partners, you may find that your behaviors, emotions, and thoughts are not only valid but actually make a lot of sense considering what you've been through.
