PREMARITAL COUNSELING

It is a documented fact that couples who receive some form of premarital counseling have lower divorce rates than couples who fail to fully explore complex relationship issues prior to their wedding. With that said, constant maintenance and attention is needed to maintain a successful marriage. Helping couples define healthy patterns and establish skills to get through difficult times is crucial. Much of couples counseling is aimed at helping couples think about and discuss their opinions and feelings about the following issues:

  • Life Style Expectations
  • Friends and Family Support
  • Personality Match
  • Personal Issues and Habits
  • Communication Skills
  • Problem Solving
  • Religion and Values
  • Parenting Goals
  • Extending Family Dynamics
  • Sexuality
  • Finances
  • Readiness for Commitment
  • Career Goals and Values
  • Cohabiting
  • Remarriage

SEPARATION & DIVORCE COUNSELING

We work with individuals to aid in the emotional recovery from separation and divorce. We believe that the process of grieving, letting go, and moving on can become more manageable and less painful when worked through with an experienced therapist. Some of the issues addressed include:

  • Working through the stages of loss
  • Identifying and coping with complex feelings
  • Helping children adjust
  • Easing isolation
  • Finding forgiveness
  • Defining yourself as a single person
  • Utilizing available resources in the healing process
CO-PARENTING COUNSELING

When parents are separating or have gone through a divorce, oftentimes it is difficult to communicate and make decisions with one another regarding their children. Co-parenting counseling is highly structured and focused on increasing communication skills, and developing strategies for preventing or reducing conflicts that arise. As a co-parent counselor, I can also help parents resolve anger or grief related to the ending of the relationship so that both can focus more fully on parenting issues without the intrusion of destructive feelings.

FAMILY COUNSELING

WORKING SYSTEMATICALLY WITH FAMILIES TO HELP:
  • Develop more effective communication
  • Solve individual problems that are affecting other family members
  • Create common values and goals
  • Establish hierarchy within the family
  • Implement structure and family rules
  • Identify Development Stages
  • Learn effective, loving, and respectful parenting skills

For many individuals, a psychological assessment or evaluation is the best first step in understanding and improving oneself. It provides an in-depth view of one’s issues and offers specific recommendations in overcoming emotional distress and improving in a variety of environments like school, home, social, work, etc. Dr. Jones and her staff have a great interest and skill in assessing issues that may underlie psychological symptoms and difficulties. They pride themselves on considering all areas of functioning, including physical health symptoms that may mimic mental health disorders.
