    Divorce is a fairly common reality in the U.S. while the most-often cited statistic is that 50 percent of marriages will end in divorce. Current estimates are that the number is actually in the range of 42 to 45.

    That’s still a very large number of divorces and it’s a figure that is growing even higher among those aged 55 to 64 where divorce rates have quadrupled over the past three decades.

    One would think that it’s fairly easy to spot when a marriage is in trouble, but, in fact, marriage problems often tend to grow slowly over time rather than suddenly seeming to burst out of nowhere.  It’s important to be aware of the potential problems facing any marriage, since early intervention and the seeking of assistance can often help avoid divorce as a final outcome.

    While there will always be small trouble spots and disagreements in even the best of relationships it’s when the disagreements become almost constant that there are real problems underlying the marriage.

    One sign that serious troubles are brewing is when one partner feels he or she is giving more than is being received over an extended period of time.  It can be a job, outside family, the children or any of numerous other issues that has one partner feeling he or she is unfairly carrying the bulk of the load.

    When a couple is experiencing severe disagreements that are happening frequently and are coupled with an unwillingness or inability to resolve those disagreements, there’s a good chance that permanent damage is being done to the relationship.

    Such problems are usually a sign that outside help, in the form of a professional counselor, is needed.  While seeking assistance for marital problems doesn’t mean that every marriage will be saved, it does increase the chances of working out solutions.  And in some cases that solution might mean the couple is better off being apart.

    A  counseling profession can facilitate communication between the couple help see the reality of their situation and offer techniques to help in resolving the problems being faced.

    Your family clergy may be trained in marriage counseling, or you can consult a cou seling professional specializing in relationship and marriage counseling.  The American Counseling Association website at www.counseling.org can help in locating a counselor in your area experienced in these fields.——-ACA

    How To Tell When A Marriage Is In Trouble

    Rapid results are based on the positive instead of the traditional negative results of the Freudian techniques.  This allows us to accomplish results in a much faster time.  Our average time is 1-2 months versus the average time for traditional counseling of 6 months to 2 years.

    With our program we use the addition of natural and holistic sciences like mindfulness, aromatherapy, hypnotherapy, CBT.  Rapid results reduces the time from 6 months to 2 years down to 1 to 2 months with our rapid results.

    What is the difference between rapid results and the traditional psychology?  Traditional psychology has been known to mainly focus on mental illness where as rapid results focuses on me mental wellness.  Traditional psychology is for those with a diagnosed disorder and it fails to help those who do not have a diagnosis disorder.  Traditional psychology focuses on the negativity in us where as rapid results focuses on what is positive in our lives.  Rapid results does not take from traditional psychology but expands upon it.  It merely looks at why life is worth living.  The goal of rapid results is to achieve personal happiness, satisfaction, and wellbeing in our lives.

    With rapid results you put the client in the drivers seat.  They are in control of their destiny. They get to live life to the fullest. Where with traditional psychology they play the blame game and get to be a victim.

    With rapid results you are living in the present where with traditional psychology you have to relive your past.

    Why Rapid Results Are The Most Effective Methods

    To start with, we are a non-profit clinic and we adjust our fees depending upon a person’s ability to pay.

    So even if we did not take your insurance we would cost you less as we are able to accomplish most treatments in one to two months versus the usual or normal 6 months to several years.

    With your use of insurance and your copay we would be faster and much less expensive in the end and you should get back your fees due to our non-profit status.
