FAMILY, CHILD AND PARENTING:

Family values have changed over the last many years. What was vital and important in maintaining family relationships seem to have undergone a change, and not necessarily for the better. Families are encountering  significant pressures and stresses today imposing more strain on the family ties. The need to provide guidance to children is becoming ever more important with each passing year. Families are under tremendous pressures and both adults and children suffer as a consequence of the way our society has failed to provide the necessary resources to assist parents in raising their children. One of the prime goals is to assist children and parents to learn and develop habits and patterns that will help them to deal with real life issues, such as coping skills, setting guidelines, and help to bring order out of chaos, while maintaining family integrity and love.

         SHYNESS and SOCIAL ANXIETY:  A major aspect of our lives since the embrace of computers and wireless technology, has fostered a generation of young and old who are exhibiting difficulties in communicating and relating to others. Shyness and Social Anxiety are becoming more prevalent in a society that utilizes more technological toys and less social interactions. This is a very important aspect that is in need of considerable attention. Come to explore what can be done to assist you to reduce your fears and become a more confident person.

 MARRIAGE COUNSELING: involves relationship issues, which can cover the gauntlet from control issues, financial matters, breakdown in communications, mental cruelty, extramarital affairs and many other matters. It is important for couples to learn that there is help available. Once they make the decision to seek counseling, it is huge step forward to renewing the love that initially drew them together. There are different degrees of wants and needs by each partner and it takes effort to work out equitable compromises that will provide satisfaction and a renewed sense of commitment to the marriage. As the song says “It Takes Two To Tango,” and both parties must be willing to make contributions to bring harmony to the marriage. Discussions are treated with utmost confidentiality.

  METAMORPHOSIS   provides specialized assistance in the area of Gender Dysphoria, referred to as Transsexualism or Transgenderism. The concept of transitioning from one sex or gender to another is a relatively new phenomenon and is fraught with pitfalls and problems. Gender Dysphoria entails a major change in life style. It involves a radical shift in thinking, in presentation, in mannerisms and in dealing with everyday life activities. In addition, clients must learn to cope with possible rejections, inner turmoil and confusion. Those undergoing transition will be undertaking major physical changes, which in turn bring about other psychological issues.

De-Transitioning, a newer study, is also available for those interested in reverting to their original gender. While this is relatively unknown, it seems to be happening more often and we can  provide assistance to help you regain your focus and determine what is the best course of action for you.

YOU: The most important person in your life has to be you. If you are willing to make a commitment to improving the quality of your life, then you may reap significant benefits. Make the decision and see how your life will change.  Thank you. I look forward to hearing from you.
