There is no single unit more important than family.  A focus on the family's health is paramount, as it can either spring up thriving, well-adjusted members who form healthy attachments, or it can do just the opposite - breed a domino effect of problems.  A family may need counseling for major life events, emotional mismanagement, addiction, blended family issues, parenting concerns, and more.  If you and your family are struggling with these or any other issues, take a step towards family healing, and schedule your first appointment today.

Whether dating, engaged, married, separated, or contemplating divorce, couples therapy is designed to help strengthen emotional intimacy.  Couples therapy can be a powerful forum for evaluating relationship goals, learning to communicate in effective ways, building on strengths, learning how to manage conflict, and creating deeper connections.  Your therapist may want you to come individually for one session after seeing you both together to hear each partner's personal perspectives.  Both partners may also be asked to take the Gottman Relationship Checkup Assessment tool, which will give your therapist more information about your relationship and will help identify the specific interventions that will be useful in treatment.  


The goal of premarital counseling is to prepare couples for marriage.  Topics discussed include:

  • Finances
  • Communication
  • Beliefs and values
  • Roles in marriage
  • Affection and sex
  • Children and parenting
  • Family relationships
  • Decision-making
  • Dealing with anger
  • Time spent together

Individual therapy at Bayou Wellness is offered for a wide range of issues.  In the first two sessions, your therapist will conduct a thorough assessment of the existing problems and will help you establish some very specific treatment goals.  Based on the assessment and goals, your therapist will tailor an individualized treatment plan just for you.  You will most likely attend weekly sessions where your therapist helps you work towards your therapy goal.  Treatment may be short- or long-term, depending on the need.
