Pascual Chen, Psy.D.
Licensed Clinical Psychologist
6200 Brooktree Rd. Suite 110, Wexford, Pennsylvania 15090
I am passionate about helping couples have successful and enjoyable relationships. When working with couples, I use a combination of emotionally focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, solution focused therapy, and Imago Dialogue. When couples experience conflict, they tend to be caught in a vicious cycle where the very tools they use to improve the relationship is the very thing that is making it worse. For example, a husband may get quiet when his wife brings on a complaint. The reason he is quiet is to not make things worse, but this happens to trigger the wife to get more upset. My goal is to help you identify your cycle, get unstuck, and learn effective communicative skills.

Nichole Behr, LPC, NCC, BSC
Licensed Professional Counselor
N/A, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania 15228
I work with individuals and couples who may be experiencing difficulties or that want to continue to build on an already healthy relationship. Relationships are challenging and require work and effort. Counseling can afford the opportunity to discuss many of the common areas of concern for relationships such as finances, communication, infidelity, and family life.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Relationships can be wonderful, fulfilling, and even magical at times. They can also be frustrating, hurtful, and even maddening at times! My work with couples centers on modeling appropriate forms of communication and helping you to face the present and the future. If all you want to do is talk about the past--I'm probably not your guy. I'm interested in helping you to move forward, not to look back. I specialize in the use of humor to make the sessions more pleasant.

Sometimes relationship conflicts and individual differences seem insurmountable. This can be especially so when we lack insight and compassion into not only ourselves and our own childhoods, but the developmental/family origins of our partner's behavior. When we understand the deeper meanings residing in the maladaptive behavior of our partner, we are less likely to personalize/internalize their struggles and accept their blaming projections. Moreover, we can begin relating in a compassionate manner as opposed to anger or rage. Our approach to helping couples will invigorate a new spirit of "partnership" where "keeping score" or "needing to be right" will be a dynamic of the past.
Judith Moolten, Cognitive & Somatic Treatment
Cognitive Behavioral & IBSR Somatic Therapist, body memory retrieval/removal of physical emotional pain
20 Walnut Avenue , Wheeling, West Virginia 26003
We seem to do exceptionally well with couples meeting with each individually, then as a team. We work on creating clear boundaries, working on unconscious motivators and we are always short term resolution focused. If more in depth specialized work is needed due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment issues then we use either our IBSR model for stress, trauma, anxiety, panic and uncontrollable actions, then what typically happens after an IBSR session is emotions can move to the surface and be ripe to be organized with our CBT and our EMDR-IBSR Hybrid approach to treatment.
