One of our main specializations that we often come across is Relationship Issues. Relationship issues is a main focus for us (a frequent presenting problem) because individuals cannot be studied in isolation of others. With relationship issues, we use our Empower You Experts System that incorporates strategies from a variety of therapy interventions, creating an Eclectic Approach that includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy or (Insight-Oriented Therapy), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT).
When Empower You Experts works with individuals, couples, and families, we oftentimes discuss and teach techniques related to improving relationships, such as building strategies in awareness and insight, linking early (past) familial learning and beliefs, such as shame and guilt thoughts, to the contribution of present conditions both individually and/or relationally. Empower You Experts helps individuals and couples build skills in communication and assertiveness; stress and anger management; coping with grief and loss; and learning on how different disorders/problems affect the relationship with family, friends, and intimate partners or spouses.
