For some people, they will spend more time researching a new car lease that they’ll keep for three years than they will delving into an upcoming marriage that they hope to last for life. Well here at Mars & Venus, we think that premarital counseling is pretty important. And so do our many patients who have gotten the types of positive results that set the stage for a healthy, fulfilling, long lasting partnership of mutual love, respect, and support. That’s what our Bergen County marriage family therapist helps with.
If you speak to anyone who has been married for 10, 20, 30 years or more, you will discover that a successful relationship is not completely free of conflict. It’s about handling conflicts without blaming each other and without holding grudges. Just two married people living together creates the opportunity for problems to arise, both big and small. Now add children, or other family members, and you have a unique challenge. Our Bergen County family therapist will help you to listen to each other rather than just wait to argue your own points. The goal is to grow closer together, not to push each other further away, as can happen, often without either of you realizing it until it’s too late. You may hear some people scoff and tell you that they have enough work, and that working on a marriage is unnecessary. They may be fortunate enough to have a strong relationship anyway, but it’s in spite of that attitude, and not because of it. The reality is that anything worthwhile takes effort. And the fruits that a good marriage brings with it are well worth the minimal time and work you put into working with our Bergen County family therapist.

At times life can get a little rough with pressures from work, school and relationships within and outside the family causing stress and tension. In these times of emotional and psychological travail the family can be a great comfort, however in many cases the family can also be the cause of the stress or their interactions can increase the anguish any or all members feel. This is especially true when it when it comes to emotional changes experienced by children and teenagers and the family they are part of. Family therapy in Bergen County at Mars & Venus has been helping families cope and successfully overcome many types of problems and conflicts including assisting kids deal with emotional situations and the tribulations of growing and forming relationships.

Childhood and especially the preteen and teen years can be particularly hard on young people causing uneasiness, depression, problems forming and sustaining social relationships, exhibiting behavioral problems at home or school and suffering from low self-esteem. During these periods young people are often torn between seeking approval from their parents and approval from their peers, being part of the group is very important to them as is feelings of trust, independence, and the importance of social factors. The teenage years can be particularly hard on family relationships when teens are trying to find out about the world, expressing themselves and their freedom while responding to surging hormones. Family therapy in Bergen County recommends individual counseling for the young client. While progress is being made during individual counseling our therapist will endeavor to facilitate better communications between the parents and the child.
It may not always seem like it but the family is the first line of defense for the child against the stresses of his emerging outside relationships. However, often the stress is brought back to the family dynamic in a negative way making everything inside and outside the family worse. Our family therapy in Bergen County will help family members examine the family’s ability to solve problems and express thoughts and emotions, explore family roles, rules and behavior patterns in order to identify issues that contribute to conflict, as well as ways to work through these issues. Family therapy can help you identify family strengths, such as caring for one another, and weaknesses, such as difficulty confiding in one another. Family therapy can include all the members of the family or just those that are involved in the immediate situation. If there are family issues or a lack of effective communications in your home please call our office for an appointment.
