Couple’s and Family Therapy

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

    Now try and also maintain stable and fulfilling romantic relationship. 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.  How do you feel? And what about that sense of inner balance and peace? If it is still there, you are a superhuman, and the rest of us hardly measure up to you.

  • 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. On 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 TEMA, we take into account your cultural background and your history 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!
