Are you looking for a couples counselor in Jacksonville, Florida. If you are, you have absolutely landed on the right website. At D’Arienzo Psychological Group, we have four different couples counselors with various training, to include one psychologist, two licensed clinical social workers, and one mental health counselor. Each couples counselor possesses special training to treat couples in marriage counseling.
It is important that you find a counselor that is a good fit for you. Picking a marriage counselor is more complicated than choosing an individual counselor because the therapist has to be a good fit for both you and your partner. It is important to shop around various websites when choosing someone. Your preference is important; however, if you feel uncomfortable with a certain gender of counselor, it may be helpful to work with that person to resolve what ever problem you may have with that gender.
There has been a lot of research about what works in counseling. It turns out that the most important factor is you and your willingness to change. If you match that with a qualified professional, you are most likely to change for the better. We also know that couples therapy is an effective method in treating couples. The research suggests that about 75% of couple’s satisfaction improves following participation in marital therapy with a licensed couples counselor.
At D’Arienzo Psychological Group, our marriage counselors offer Emotionally Focused Therapy, the Gottman Approach, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy. All of these counseling methods have been found to be effective in helping couples improve communication and their bonds.
