If you are seeking therapy or coaching, you are likely experiencing some level of emotional distress and are searching for increased meaning, awareness, and satisfaction in your life.  You know things can be better.

Our work together will identify and focus on areas requiring extra attention – followed by change. Together we will target specific and practical patterns which may be holding you back, as well as ways to alter these patterns to make your life work for you. The goal is to create a profound change that you will take with you throughout your life.

I specialize in working with emotional intimacy within couples and families to enhance communication and improve relationships. I also work with individuals to help with self-awareness and self-intimacy, which then leads to greater communication and harmony in their relationships. My approach to therapy is positive, supportive, and interactive – and includes lots of feedback, reflection, and challenge.

Our time together will involve quickly identifying and changing those patterns that currently keep you “stuck” in marriage, career, or relationships with children, family, or peers… even your ability to fully “know” yourself.  Part of my job is to carefully understand – and help you understand – who you are and where you come from as it relates to your current struggles.  We will work to ensure that we are meeting goals in a timely manner and ensure a constructive and focused use of your time – in and out of session.

Some of the areas that I help people with are:

  • Intimacy
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress Management
  • Anger Management
  • Family of Origin Wounds
  • Trauma
  • Life Transitions
  • Perfectionism
  • Codependence
  • Unhealthy Relationship Patterns
  • Personal Growth and Development

The following are some of the basic goals of individual therapy I strive to help you achieve:

  • Increase Intimacy in Relationships
  • Decrease Your Symptoms
  • Learn Effective Management Tools and Coping Skills
  • Understand Origins of the Issues at Hand
  • Evaluate and Discuss Any Self-Defeating Core Beliefs
  • Develop Healthy Boundaries Between You and Others
  • Encourgage Long-Term Change

Virtual Therapy

Although we may live many miles away from each other – or even if we live in the same city but you don’t feel like leaving the comfort of your home  – we can still work together!

Over the past couple years, the number of people taking advantage of Virtual or Online Therapy has increased dramatically.  Many people who have experienced therapy sessions online report that the experience leaves them feeling less intimidated, more relaxed, and in-charge of the session – thereby leading to increased growth and happiness!  Our therapeutic relationship online can be every bit as powerful as face-to-face therapy, since it feels like we’re actually in the same room.

Since getting 2 or more people together in one room is often impractical, online therapy is a perfect option for couples, families, or groups who may find it difficult to be in the same place at the same time.  Online therapy is also great for the environment, as it cuts down on costs of transportation to and from the therapy office!

I offer a short initial “meeting” via Skype – at no cost to you – in order to familiarize with the process and see if you would like to work with me.  Please call me at 954-300-1818 or email me at info@integrativetherapysolutions.net for more information. You can also learn more about me at www.drmarlareis.com.

I look forward to working with you!
