When you’re struggling in your relationship, working with some one who’s truly qualified to understand the needs, conflicts and challenges of a committed relationship is vitally important to the quality of the help you receive. There’s no shortage of therapists who will lend you an ear and sympathize with your plight. And to some extent, this is an important part of the therapeutic process. However, to make real change you’ll need to go beyond this. I work with couples to develop the skills and capacities to make real and lasting change.

Struggling with challenges such as infidelity, emotional disconnection, and/or communication difficulties? In need of strengthening your connection/bond or intimacy? Need help with specific issues such as money, sex, or parenting? I utilize a variety of treatments that have demonstrated positive outcomes with couples. Clients are given home works and exercises to work on in between sessions. Intensive therapy (e.g., 2-4 hour long sessions) is available as well as pre-marital and co-parenting counseling. If you don’t work toward change, things usually will remain the same and often do become worse. Your relationship can be better. You just need to call 602-323-7824 to get started.

What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings?

At the Mandel Center of AZ, Alyssa Mandel, LCSW we assist clients with the difficult task of working on relationship issues. We have a specialty in couples counseling / marriage counseling and have assisted hundreds of couples who came to us with little hope. We help the couple in a non-judgmental environment by reinvigorating their relationship, learning positive communication skills, focusing on the strengths of the relationship so they can move forward with confidence. If the couple decides to part ways, then we assist them in doing so in the most supportive and least conflictual way possible. We follow the lead of the couple as opposed to placing our values and judgments upon them.

Imago Therapy explores our concepts of love developed in childhood. We are unconsciously drawn to persons who will help us heal and develop where we learned to hold back or were not allowed to express ourselves. Our partner reflects the positive and negative aspects of our parents/caregivers and gives us a second chance to heal and release inhibited personality traits. We address the wounds of each partner, re-experience romance, learn to turn complaints into requests, resolve extreme anger, and re-envision the relationship as safe and happy. Communication skills of mirroring, validating, showing empathy are developed so they feel like a natural way to relate.

All relationships seek and maintain a balance. Paying attention to the patterns in a relationship will reveal cycles that provide some level of predictability. Healthy couple patterns lead to relational intimacy because you can expect to feel reasonably safe and respected. Other patterns can leave someone feeling alone, misunderstood, or disrespected. We often seek change when things become uncomfortable. I can help couples identify painful patterns and coach them on how to begin implementing new connections that lead to feeling safe, understood, and known. Trained in emotionally focused couples (EFT) therapy, I assist partners to better understand and support themselves and each other.

I provide Christian for couples that are married, engaged, or looking to head that direction. I am certified to facilitate the SYMBIS premarital assessment for engaged couples. My approach to marriage counseling combines the ancient wisdom of scripture with the latest research from the counseling field. If your partner is not interested in counseling, I also offer "couples counseling for one," where I help just one partner improve the relationship.

Many couples come for counseling and their number one request is Communication Skills! It's always communication plus something...parenting, aging parents, finances, sex etc. It take dedication to make a new skill into a trait (something you naturally do). In addition to this, couples get to know each other through a variety of assessment instruments, learn conflict resolution skills, identify the marital "dance" and develop greater empathy, leading to softening of hearts and the ability to reconnect at a deeper level.
