Couple’s And Family Therapy

  • It is hard enough to be a successful, accomplished, flexible, open-minded, and self-aware individual. Did I mention happy?

    Now try to find a good match to such an individual. Hard enough, isn’t it?

    Try to keep the relationship healthy and strong at all times…ok, some of the time. Now, throw a couple of kids into this equation. Now how do you feel? And what about that sense of inner balance and peace? If it is still there, you are a superhuman, and definitely not one of us

  • The rest of us stumble and stagger, trying to find our way through the complicated maze of the relationships. We differ in the number and intensity of relationship conflicts we experience daily, though.

    On the one end of the continuum is the relationship that is burdened by battles and acute dissatisfaction from the initial stages, yet people stay together for a variety of reasons. One the other end of the same continuum is a strong and healthy relationship with only mild glitches that can be improved by a few counseling sessions. There are also all sorts of possible scenarios in-between, which can be enhanced, helped, and even sometimes, saved by a timely, tactful yet candid professional intervention.

  • At our Center, we take into account your cultural backgrounds and your histories of previous relationships, all of which have direct impact on your current issues. It is possible to cite a long list of different approaches to couple’s and family counseling that is utilized by our specialists, but it would be sufficient to say that we tailor our approach to your relational needs, while having YOUR goals for this relationship in mind.

    We also do multigenerational work, which, when necessary, may involve extended family members, and blended families.

    Family work is difficult, quite messy, occasionally loud and unruly. Yet we feel very privileged to work with your family in order to create more balance and satisfaction for each family member. All types of couples and families are welcome!


Important Insurance Information

We only take insurance as out of network providers. The reason for this is that we don’t want the insurance to dictate us what to do in therapy, how much, and how frequently. We, as professionals, feel very strongly that this decision should be between the patient and the doctor or the therapist, without the third party intervening into this process. We have staff members who will work with you around your budget to make it affordable for you and/or for your children to undergo necessary psychological treatment. Because of their licensure requirements, some of our highly qualified junior clinicians currently work under supervision of the clinical director. The perks of working with one of our junior clinicians, besides the lower cost for services, also include that our junior clinicians get hour to hour supervision from the director of the center who is a licensed PhD psychologist with extensive experience in the mental health field. Hour to hour supervision means that, in addition to a session with this particular clinician, two people will put their heads together while puzzling over your case and drafting out ways to approach all of the pertinent issues. If there is a piece of the puzzle that will be better solved by a social worker, because, say, your anxiety stems not only from psychological problems but also from a dire housing situation, the clinician will get “on a flight” consultation from one of our social workers and will provide you with available resources. So let me use the sales people cliché here: it is two for the low price of one! Jokes aside, this model of work ensures that our center provides the best possible care for you and for your loved ones in the most cost-effective manner.
