What is The Process Like?
We usually start sessions by addressing your immediate concerns. Our highly individualized approach prioritizes alleviating emotional pain quickly. Once we get to know you better, we can dig deeper and learn more about underlying emotional triggers that may be blocking you from enjoying your life and obtaining mental, emotional, relationship and professional success.
You And Your Partner Have An Opportunity For A Loving And Respectful Relationship
If you are ready to rediscover the joy in your relationship, we invite you to call us for a complimentary 20-minute phone consultation to discuss your needs and how couples therapy can help you and your partner strengthen your connection and improve your life together.
My partner and are I struggling in our relationship, but I still have questions and concerns about couples therapy…
1. I am worried that our therapist might side with my partner.
Our skills, expertise and professionalism demonstrate that we are dedicated to helping you and your partner find solutions based on unbiased plans, strategies and techniques. Sometimes, our clients worry that their therapist will choose sides based on gender (i.e. a female therapist will side with the female partner). However, our clients who attend couples therapy sessions with an open mind immediately find that our interests are aligned with those of both you and your partner.
2. Do the benefits of couples therapy outweigh the cost?
You know the bond you once had or currently have with your partner is invaluable. If you have a child, you also know how valuable your family unity is for him or her.
Investing in your relationship now could save you time and money in the future. In addition to saving your family years of heartache, counseling could potentially save you and your partner thousands of dollars in divorce costs.
3. I am worried our friends and family will judge us for seeking couples therapy.
We are dedicated to keeping our sessions completely confidential. In fact, we’d lose our license if we did not follow privacy laws. On the off chance someone you know sees you at our office, they would not know what treatment you are seeking. Nevertheless, you should not be ashamed of your commitment to your partner – many of your friends and family members may even admire your progress.
4. How do I know if I can afford counseling?
Even though financial problems and seeking therapy may seem like a Catch-22, we take all personal insurance and are a part of the TN Cares program. Some services are available on a sliding scale with verification of income. Therapy is also an investment in your family’s future. By spending the time, energy and money now, you could save yourself the money and stress of more troubling problems later.
