The Importance of Professional Family and Marriage Counseling

Rare is the person who has zero problems with interpersonal relationships.  Even those who are well-rounded, have good communication skills and exhibit a strong emotional vocabulary can experience problems in relationships that they simply don’t have the skills or experience to solve.

This is where targeted counseling services can help, bridging the gaps that separate us and keep us from enjoying loving and trusting relationships.  At The Attach Place, our highly trained and experienced team is pleased to offer:

  • Marriage Counseling and Couples Therapy
  • Family and Child Counseling
  • Trauma Therapy, and more…

In particular, we specialize in attachment therapy for children with complex trauma and neurofeedback solutions, among other forms of therapy.  Why is this so important?  All of our services are designed to help you achieve optimal wellness and strengthen relationships, in order to lead a healthier, happier life.

You’re not alone, but without help, it can feel that way.  We have the expertise to guide you toward healing, understanding, and overcoming relationship difficulties.  With support from the caring and qualified team at The Attach Place, tomorrow can be better than today.


The Benefits of Family and Trauma Therapy

In any relationship, it’s easy to become entrenched in patterns of behavior that are neither healthy nor productive.  With couples counseling, marriage therapy, or family counseling services, the members of your household have an opportunity to become aware of problems, learn to communicate with love and understanding, and enjoy deeper trust and acceptance in relationships.

Whether you need help communicating with a romantic partner, your entire household could benefit from family therapy, or your child has suffered complex trauma that requires trauma counseling, The Attach Place offers a warm, family-friendly environment in which to begin the process of healing.

When it feels like your life is falling apart and you’re at the end of your rope, we offer the support you need to once again connect with loved ones, regain a sense of understanding and empathy, and forge strong family bonds.  With specialization in family and child therapy, as well as adoption and trauma therapy, The Attach Place offers the comprehensive therapeutic services you need to repair relationships and restore peace to your home.


Individual Therapy

As adults, we often have expectations for ourselves that we would never impose on others.  When life gets hard, we tell ourselves to toughen up and forge ahead.  When we can’t deal with the incredible amounts of stress in our lives, we beat ourselves up, and when we fail in relationships, we tell ourselves it will be better next time.

The truth is, most of us simply don’t have the tools to understand why we feel sad or angry, or why we lash out.  We don’t know that issues from our childhood could still affect us as adults if we never address them.  The good news is, you don’t need to try to cope with these problems alone.

At The Attach Place, qualified and caring therapists are ready to offer the individual treatment, marriage counseling, or family therapy you need to better understand yourself, improve your situation, and work toward a happy and healthy future.  With the targeted treatment, you can thrive.

The process often starts with individual counseling sessions to discuss your life and the issues impacting your mental and emotional health and overall wellness.  Becoming aware of why you make certain choices and experience negative emotions is an important first step.  Once you know yourself, you can begin to make positive changes, and from there, you can focus on interpersonal relationships with marriage counseling or family therapy, as needed.


Couples Counseling

When you look at loving couples, you might think they have it easy.  You may wonder why you struggle in your own relationships.  Why are your relationships so full of arguments and strife?  Why can’t you just be happy?

While no two relationships are alike, and even happy couples have to work hard to maintain a close and loving bond, you should know that feeling a strong connection and enjoying a supportive and loving relationship is possible, as long as both people are willing to work at it, and marriage therapy can help.  The trained and experienced team at The Attach Place has the solution you’re seeking with couples therapy that can help you and your partner to become aware of issues and work together to make things better.

In relationships, it’s all too easy to take your loved ones for granted.  As a result, you may grow comfortable taking out your anger and frustration on these individuals, instead of treating them with the love and kindness they deserve.  Or it could go the other way – you may feel like no matter how supportive you are, your significant other simply doesn’t appreciate you, or maybe even like you.

By the time you decide to seek couples counseling or marriage therapy, your relationship may be in dire straits.  It’s possible that some relationships cannot be salvaged.  At some point, too much damage has been done.  But if there’s still love and a willingness to try, it’s also possible that you can forgive one another, gain a better understanding of the problems you’re facing, and start working toward a future where love, acceptance, and mutual kindness and respect ensure that both partners feel fulfilled.


Family Therapy

Untangling the difficulties of family dynamics is no easy feat, what with so many distinctive personalities in play.  Every person is a bundle of desires and goals, fears and anxieties, and in some cases, contradictory impulses.  When you throw a bunch of them together, it’s no wonder family relationships can be difficult to maintain, especially if issues are further exacerbated by circumstances like the abandonment, neglect, and abuse that adopted children may have suffered.


Child Therapy (Children and Adolescents)

You naturally want the best for your children, but as a parent, you may find yourself unprepared to deal not only with the expected difficulties of childrearing but added issues related to attachment disorders.  This is where child therapy with the experienced and compassionate therapists at The Attach Place can help.

We may recommend additional family or couples counseling so that the entire family can learn to work together.  Parenting, in and of itself, can place a strain on spouses, and marriage counseling is designed to heal rifts that won’t improve without understanding and effort.  This puts you and your partner in the best position to support and nurture children, and with the addition of family and child therapy, you have the greatest opportunity to maintain a loving and healthy family environment.
