Hi, my name is Phil Erichsen and I’m one of the licensed therapists here at Crosswinds Counseling. Now, I’ve been reliably informed by some people a lot smarter than me who know data and facts and things about our website and all the tech stuff, that a lot of people who’ve been going to our website have been searching for some common themes, and it tends to be something geared around marriage specifically.
The word “marriage” itself is a common search word that is used on our site, and that happens to be a great thing for me because I love marriage. and I love marriage counseling. In fact that is the passion that I have in therapy. I love to work with clients who are trying to rebuild and reconnect in their marriage.
I went on Amazon and I bought this gavel here. This little thing. And I spent actual money on this thing for this exact purpose. I bring up this thing just in marriage counseling and I give this kind of analogy. I say:
Reminding yourself that you know that they love you and care about you and why, I love to ask this question:
You know, many times in marriage counseling, I tell people:
Almost all marital conflicts are just mistakes or errors that are unintentional. So I use these kinds of analogies here, and most marital therapists, we’re trying to do that as well. And it’s just trying to bring you back to reconnecting and believing in your spouse. Bringing back that joy. Usually, we have you do some fun stuff, some encouraging things. It’s not all torturous. It’s not all conflict resolution. In fact that that is a part of it, but a lot of it is underlying there. And it’s usually a lot of fun. [It] can be exciting. At least I try to make it that way.
So I will tell you that if any of these things are something that you’re working on, that you need some guidance or some help in your marriage, make sure to just give us a call. My name is Phillip Erichsen. If you want to meet with me or one of our many awesome marital therapists here, go ahead and give us a call and we would love to help you out in the needs that you have.
Thank you very much.
