Our Unique Approach to Counseling/Therapy
Are you struggling to connect with your partner? Does it seem like you have the same arguments over and over again? Are there moments where the resentment or anger gest so bad in your relationship that there’s just a heavy silence that comes over you? Does it often feel like you and your partner are more like roommates?
From addiction issues, to infidelity, to religious differences, to problems with step-children, Jon Dabach has seen and heard just about everything when it comes to issues in a romantic relationship. While every relationship is unique and presents its own set of challenges, it doesn’t take a genius to do this for over 10 years and start noticing some very consistent patterns that emerge from couple to couple.
If you’re looking to gain a deep understanding of why you fight, how to put an end to the suffering in your relationship, and start growing back into that honeymoon phase that you and your partner are urning for then counseling sessions with Jon Dabach might be the missing piece of the puzzle that you have been searching for this whole time.
Counseling, therapy, coaching, the terms are sometimes interchangeable depending on the type of provider you elect to work with. As a Certified Relationship Coach, the counseling Jon Dabach offers differs quite a bit from the type of therapy you might get from a Marriage and Family Therapist, Social Worker, or Psychologist.
Jon often gives his clients direct advice on what they should do as opposed to a classic therapist or psychologist who will try to guide them to make the decision on their own.
Jon is, in fact, married to a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and they often joke about how Jon has the ability to get clients results a bit faster because he isn’t bound by board regulations on what he can and cannot say to a client and often just boldly says what he feels the shortest path is to fixing his clients relationships.
Ultimately, the choice of what a client does with any kind of guidance is their own, and they can choose to ignore advice and continue on whatever path they feel drawn to but Jon’s perspective is that he got into the field of couples counseling and relationship therapy to see rapid, lasting transformation in his clients and does not beat around the bush waiting for clients to bump into a moment of self-discovery that most therapists have to rely on according to their ethical code.
Jon draws on techniques from some of the world’s biggest relationship experts that other psychologists lean on, like Gary Chapman, John Gottman, and others, but his direct approach keeps things plain-spoken and direct to help speed up the process of mending broken relationships.
Counseling sessions often start by hearing about what has happened in your relationship over the last week or so, but then quickly focus on ways to improve communication, revelations about communication or conflict styles in your relationship, actionable ideas on how to increase affection, and even setting up rules of what not to do.
Some clients say it feels like talking to a friend who just happens to always have the best advice you could ever want. There’s not a very clinical atmosphere to the process and Jon has found that the casual, direct nature of the way he communicates with his clients has helped him get to know his clients and their situations faster and help them resolve their issues quicker.
