Family & Marriage Counseling

This type of therapy is used to help everyone involved to deal with a difficult period, a major transition, or the mental health challenges of a family member.
Every relationship experiences its fair share of ups and downs. Conflict, disagreement, and stress are part of being in a meaningful, healthy relationship. Although most romantic relationships begin on a high note, many will experience a loss of trust, connection, or intimacy. This is why relationship problems and marital issues are some of the most common reasons people seek psychotherapy services.
Self Esteem Building
Therapy creates an experience of being acceptable instead of feeling rejected, which inherently improves self-esteem. Being consistently treated as important, valuable, and accepted by a therapist on a regular basis can challenge the negative thoughts a patient has developed about them self.
How can therapy improve communication skills?
In addition to helping clients work on become more assertive in their communications, a professional counselor or therapist can also help you learn relaxation techniques, active listening skills, and how to speak your truth while being respectful of others.
Everyone encounters stress during their lives at one point—never-ending bills, demanding schedules, work, and family responsibilities—and that can make stress seem inescapable and uncontrollable. Stress management skills are designed to help a person take control of their lifestyle, thoughts, and emotions and teach them healthy ways to cope with their problems.
