Marital counseling, enrichment and relational development

Communication difficulties and conflict resolution struggles can erode even the strongest relationships.

Our counselors are well qualified in a wide array of therapeutic techniques and evidence based therapies to both repair and enhances your relationship.

Pre-Marital Counseling

The season of engagement parties, wedding showers, and planning a wedding can be so much fun. It takes a lot of time and energy to make sure that day will be just like you dreamed. But are you and your fiancé taking the time to focus on the things that will shape your relationship in the future? Pre-Marital Counseling lasts anywhere from 6-8 weeks and helps couples build a foundation in their relationship that will make the difficult parts of marriage easier. Where marriage classes or conferences are a helpful supplements, pre-marital counseling will be tailored specifically to you as a couple. Are you concerned about finances? In-laws? How your past will impact your relationship? We will spend more time talking about the issues that are most important to you. You will learn about yourselves as a couple, be made aware of unhealthy habits that easily form if you’re not careful, and discuss topics that may not have naturally come up in your dating relationship. Come ready to discuss communication styles, conflict resolution, marriage expectations and more. Once the wedding day comes you’ll have a better understanding of what you’re walking into and you will have also built a relationship with a counselor you can reach back out to if you and your spouse encounter something difficult in the future.

Marital Enrichment

Do you and your partner feel more like roommates than lovers? Has your intimacy waned as the years have progressed? Do the kids and work take all your time and energy leaving little to none for fun with your spouse? If so, marriage enrichment may be the service for you. It is different from traditional couple’s counseling in that there is not an identified “problem” but rather a focus on growth and having the best marriage possible. This form of counseling is more structured and revolves around teaching specific skills including communication, problem solving, adaptability, stress management, and conflict resolution. It also emphasizes the importance of commitment, love, forgiveness, and friendship. Whether through a formal assessment such as Prepare/Enrich or collaboratively setting goals in session, your therapist will facilitate a safe space to strengthen and grow your marriage to it’s full potential.

Faith-Based Counseling

When life gets tough sometimes our spiritual life suffers. If your faith is important to you it is also important for it to be a part of your healing process. You’ve probably already come to find out that all of your problems can’t be solved by reading your Bible and praying more. Let us help you make sense of God’s plan in the midst of your struggles.

Cognitive processing therapy (CPT) is a cognitive- behavioral treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and related problems.  The overall goals of CPT are to improve your PTSD symptoms, and any associated symptoms you may have (such as depression, anxiety, guilt, or shame). On average, CPT consists of 12-16 individual hour therapy sessions.

In these sessions, you will learn about the symptoms of PTSD and the reasons why some people develop it. You and your therapist will also identify and explore how your trauma or traumas have changed your thoughts and beliefs, and how some of these ways of thinking may keep you ‘stuck’ in your symptoms.  CPT does not involve repeatedly reviewing the details of your trauma(s). However, you will be asked to examine your experiences in order to understand how they have affected your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.   We currently have two therapists trained in CPT; Emily Larzabal and Kimberly Presley who can begin to help you unpack the impact your experiences have on your daily functioning in order to improve your daily living. 

Trauma Recovery

Most people experience a traumatic event in their lives, whether it be an accident, a sudden death, an exposure to a distressing or violent incident, or something else.  No two people process and cope with trauma the same but it is important to process and cope in some way.  Trauma recovery counseling helps you organize the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that have changed as a result of your experience.  For some, there have been big changes in lifestyle after surviving a trauma, for others the changes are more subtle over time.  Recovering from trauma doesn’t always mean processing all of the details of the incident as each person recovers differently.  Our counselors can help you identify what you need to overcome the impact of the trauma and help you return to the life you want.  At Taylor Counseling Group, we have clinicians trained in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as Cognitive Processing Therapy. 

Depression Counseling 

Depression can feel overwhelming, frustrating, and debilitating.  When you’re depressed, you may also experience helplessness, anxiety, lack of motivation for change, changes in sleep, and hopelessness.  Our counselors can help you work through these challenges with a variety of interventions to get you back to where you want to be.  Therapy for depression doesn’t just focus on the hardships that impact your depression, but our counselors will work with you to create an individualized treatment approach to finding solutions that fit for you.  Whether your relationships are suffering, substances are being used to self-sooth, or you just feel like life is never going to improve, we can help you find the quality of life you have been striving for.

We all feel a little lost from time to time...

With Facebook, Twitter, instagram, and Snapchat there is a certainty that we are far more self obsessed with what we are doing than in who we are. Happiness is not real unless it has been properly logged and hashtaged. We must at all times keep a record of where we have been and what we are doing to prove to ourselves and to others that we exist and that our existing is pleasant and liked. How fake have we become? Perhaps, that is unfair. Perhaps we have always been this self obsessed but are only now realizing the depth of our narcissism as the mirror grows larger.

Do you feel lost or alone? Trying figure out who you are and where you fit into this thing called life. Perhaps working on your identity can help you to discover who you really are and to develop the courage to become and develop your true identity.
