Strategic marriage counseling is active and direct (A few words from Dr. Kaye)
"Strategic marriage counseling" is active and direct unlike other forms of counseling that are passive. Whether it's individual psychotherapy or couples counseling, I work with a logical plan on how to help you to achieve your goals. I believe that you deserve more than just being heard and supported. My active style is to teach you different strategies to gradually change your emotions and emotionally driven behaviors over time. That way, you can grow to become the person or the couple that you want to be.
So that you can better understand my approach, I have placed an incredible amount of useful information on this website. If you want individual counseling or therapy, read below about the different types that I offer. If you seek marriage counseling, then open the following Marriage First Aid Kit and read my book chapters below to help yourselves even before you set an appointment.
