Marriage counseling is an investment in your relationship and strengthens your marriage. It is important to make this investment, as your marriage is the gift that keeps on giving. At Take Charge, Inc., in Overland Park, Kansas, Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor Terri Dichiser has provided exceptional service to clients since 1991.
Marriage is one of the most important relationships we will ever have, but it can also be one of the most complicated. Despite the fact that America is the most prosperous society, we face an epidemic of depression and anxiety based on emotional starvation. Couples often feel disconnected in their most important relationship – their marriage.
One of the main factors that can determine the effectiveness of marriage counseling is the motivation level of both partners. For some couples, marriage counseling is really divorce counseling because they’ve already thrown in the towel. For others, they haven’t taken the time to choose a therapist who is a good fit for them.
Terri utilizes Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) to help couples reconnect with one another. She uses therapy and marriage counseling to help couples recognize the patterns they have established in their relationship and offers tools and strategies to break those patterns to create a renewed sense of safety and security with your spouse.
It’s not that these couples don’t get mad or disagree. It’s that when they disagree, they’re able to stay connected and engaged with each other. Rather than becoming defensive and hurtful, they pepper their disputes with flashes of affection, intense interest, and mutual respect.
EFT is counseling therapy based on 20 years of clinical studies with proven results for couples in crisis. EFT marriage counseling is based on therapy with your spouse in the safe environment of Terri’s office to help you create a haven of safety and strength in your marriage – a marriage based on a connection with your spouse that makes you stronger as an individual and in your marriage.
How can marriage counseling help couples?
• A motivated couple can begin to explore their problems from a new perspective.
• They can learn new ways to recognize and resolve conflicts as a result of the tools provided by Terri.
• Partners can improve communication that may have eroded the quality of their interactions. It’s common for couples to reach an impasse and lose the ability to be vulnerable and trusting of one another.
• It can provide “neutral territory” to help couples work through tough issues or to put aside “baggage” that prevents the couple from moving on.
• Couples can decide to rebuild their marriage and make a renewed commitment.
Terri’s passion is your relationship and believes in the effectiveness of EFT and the benefits it will offer your relationship. Terri recognizes that all relationships/marriages are as unique as the people who are in them and allows the EFT process to reveal the unique qualities of each partner and how these qualities work in the relationship.
