Marriage Counseling can strike fear into the hearts of many people. Couples might picture a therapist who judges them, allies with one partner over the other, gives couples unworkable or fluffy “solutions” to their problems or who means well but is a waste of time and money. Marriage Counseling with Terri Clinton Dichiser at Take Charge, Inc. provides the total opposite – she provides an atmosphere for couples to connect to one another.
There are many common myths about Marriage Counseling that can easily be debunked. One is “Someone who doesn’t know me can’t help me.” The fact that a therapist like Terri doesn’t know you is exactly why she can help you!
The Marriage Counseling process works because Terri comes into every session unbiased. She is an impartial, neutral therapist who will help you sort through your marriage issues so you can go on to be more productive and happy in your daily life.
Terri uses the Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) to help couples in Marriage Counseling reconnect. In couples counseling she helps couples recognize the patterns they have established in their relationship and will offer tools and strategies to break the patterns and to create a renewed sense of safety and security in the marriage.
EFT is Marriage Counseling based on 20 years of clinical studies with proven results for couples in crisis. EFT research shows more than 70 percent of couples turned their marriage around, and 90 percent of couples “significantly improved.” EFT Marriage Counseling is based on therapy with your spouse in the safe environment of Terri’s office. She will help your marriage create a connection with your spouse that makes you stronger not only in your marriage, but as an individual.
