About Trahan Counseling
Trahan Counseling is the number one choice for marriage and couples counseling especially for young adult counseling, due to a continuum of dating, premarital, and marriage counseling with affordable fee options and specialities in areas such as infidelity, addiction, and mood. Trahan Counseling is a relationship clinic where professionals can address social skills, intimate communication, relationship building, dating skills, evaluate a future marriage, develop marriage skills, and learn to maintain healthy lifestyles.
Sometimes people say: “Therapy sounds great, but who can afford it?” Services are effective and affordable. The fee may be flexible depending on financial circumstances. Sessions can also be shortened to 30 minutes in special circumstances depending on timing and acuity, which can make them more affordable. Video counseling followup may be a cost effective way of followup. The cost of anxiety, depression, divorce, and other problems can exceed the cost of getting help.
“Therapy sounds great, I’d love someone to talk to….but does it really work?” Gottman Method Couples Therapy (GMCT) is based on the revolutionary research of John Gottman, PhD. His data proves accurate to predict divorce within 91% accuracy, and has identified what key behaviors and factors sustain relationships or divide them. Dr. Trahan supplements these assessment and intervention techniques with a research based therapy named Emotion Focused Couples Therapy (EFCT). This couples intervention has been empirically shown to help couples with a variety of issues. Additionally, research on dating and information from Neil Clark Warren, PhD, the originator of EHarmony, helps prepare young adults for the relationship of their dreams.
“Do you work with individuals?” Individual problems such as addiction to alcohol or drugs, problems with sexual dysfunction or sexual addiction, problems with obsession over relationships, career direction, problems with intimacy skills, problems with blending families, challenges with career and launching into life, challenges with mood and anxiety can all be addressed with individual counseling. Using the most effective therapies for working with individuals such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), counseling is effective for overcoming barriers to living more fully.
“I have a specific problem….can you help?” Trahan Counseling is committed to ethical treatment of mental and relational health. If your problem is beyond the realm of Dr. Trahan’s training, he will refer you to a qualified specialist who can address your specific problem. Dr. Trahan maintains a network of therapists that can assist with other problems which he cannot address.
Do you guarantee your therapy? There are many factors which contribute to success with counseling. These include motivation, consistency, and personal investment. GMCT and EFCT have very positive success rates with couples for moving past problems in an intimate relationship. Dr. Trahan has high rates of success with increasing satisfaction in friendships, family relationships and intimate partnerships.
