Marriage counseling at Take Charge, Inc. can help your relationship, to reinforce the solid foundation it was built on. Terri Dichiser provides an atmosphere for couples to connect to one another, engage in pivotal conversation, and listen to each other’s needs plus articulate your own needs to your partner while drawing them closer, all in clear, simple conversation where parties feel in control about their deepest needs to feel connected and secure in the relationship.
It’s critical that couples see conflict as an inevitable part of a committed, romantic relationship. After all, every relationship has its ups and downs, and conflict goes with the territory. Yet couples might avoid conflict because it may have signified the end of their parents’ marriage or led to bitter disputes.
When couples go to marriage counseling at Take Charge, Inc., one or both tend to think that the primary problem is their partner. Both people co-create the climate of the relationship, day in and day out. Both put distress into it, often without meaning to. And, both need to do some things differently to create the marriage or relationship they both really want.
The most studied and effective form of treatment is Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) developed by Dr. Sue Johnson. Results also show that this treatment is long-lasting and helpful with those of different ethnic and cultural backgrounds as well.
Terri uses 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.
EFT research shows:
EFT is counseling therapy based on 20 years of clinical studies with proven results for couples in crisis. EFT 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.
Conflict is growth trying to happen. It can lead you to a better relationship – if you know how to work with it.
Terri can help you both learn the tools to work with conflict. While you do important work with Terri, she can also teach you how to work with issues better on your own. You cannot take a therapist home with you (although many people want to!). But you can take home tools and insights that will help you not only in your marriage or love relationship, but in all relationships.
If you think your marriage is in trouble, do not wait. Seek help as soon as possible. Call Take Charge, Inc. at (913) 239-8255.
