Individual Therapy

Many times one member of a couple is willing to go to treatment and another is not. This does not mean that the relationship can't still be worked on. At the MRC, we believe change can take place on many different levels, be it individual, couple, or family. We utilize many of the same treatments for individuals which include: Internal Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Family Systems Theory, Emotion Focused Therapy, and others.

For those who are also in couples or family therapy, there may be a need to work on individual problems as well. Some of these problems may include:

Skype Sessions

Skype is a downloadable free service that allows audio/visual communication via computer internet connection. You can have a therapy session right from the comfort, privacy, and convenience of your own home. It is highly reliable and confidential, and rapidly becoming a popular means of counseling.

Couples Therapy

Couples therapy focuses on the problems existing in the relationship between two people. But, these relationship problems always involve individual symptoms and problems, as well as the relationship conflicts. For example, if you are constantly arguing with your spouse, you will probably also be chronically anxious, angry or depressed (or all three). Or, if you have difficulty controlling your temper, you will have more arguments with your partner. Therefore, on your first visit you will start out by filling out a bio-social- history form, individual and couple assessments. Next, your counselor and you will devise a treatment plan which includes goals and objectives that you and your counselor believe will be most effective.

In couples therapy, your therapist will help you and your partner identify the conflict issues within your relationship, and will help you decide what changes are needed, in the relationship and in the behavior of each partner, for both of you to feel satisfied with the relationship.

These changes may be different ways of interacting within the relationship, or they may be individual changes related to personal psychological problems. Couples therapy involves learning how to communicate more effectively, and how to listen more closely. Couples must learn how to avoid competing with each other, and need to identify common life goals and how to share responsibilities within their relationship. Sometimes the process is very similar to individual psychotherapy, sometimes it is more like mediation, and sometimes it is educational. The combination of the these three components is what makes it effective.

Pre-Marital Counseling

Being married can be difficult. Frankly, once the shine is off any relationship, it can be tough for couples to communicate and understand each other. A pre-marital counseling or education can help couples avert potential problems that they will otherwise encounter. Skills taught or learned through these experiences include:

  • Better Communication

  • Active Listening

  • Positive Disagreement

  • Avoiding Criticism

  • How to Complain

  • Better Understanding

  • And much more

These are positive benefits that can help couples build stronger, more lasting relationships in their marriage and other areas of their lives.
