My Approach to Helping
FOR COUPLES At the Mars & Venus Counseling Center, we use the world renowned classic Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus as the basic premise and guidance for couples work. Dr. John Gray has developed a complete clinical approach to couples counseling that integrates all of his ideas. This is the systematic approach used here, as taught and licensed by Dr. John Gray. You will learn how to understand, respect, and honor the differences between yourself and your partner. You will learn what your needs are, as well as your partner's, and how to meet them. Another major aspect of healing and growing a relationship is improving communication skills. Please call for further discussion or questions on this special couples therapy opportunity.
