Help for SWFL Marriages. Dr. Newberger Offers a Modern Alternative to Traditional Marriage Counseling for couples in Naples, Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Bonita Springs, and Estero and surrounding SWFL locations. His distinct approach differs in four key ways. His process (1) is proactive, not passive, (2) unearth's a treasure trove of needed information right from the start, (3) focuses on core issues, not the conflict that results from it, and (4) has reconciliation as the goal.
It is well known that many traditional marriage counselors and therapists are not goal-directed. These individuals were trained, in essence, to "lead from behind." Dr. Newberger, by contrast, takes a much more proactive approach. Unlike the customary way marriage counselors elicit information from a couple (question and answer), Dr. Newberger uses multiple assessment tools the couple will complete between their first and second joint sessions. This means that early on Dr. Newberger will obtain a large amount of insightful information about the two of you. This occurs far more quickly than would otherwise be the case with a traditional marriage counselor. Prior to the second joint session, he will create a strategic agenda that focuses on your core issues, not peripheral ones. Because Dr. Newberger's work focuses on reconnection and not mental health diagnoses or medical treatment, the amount of time to work through his process is typically shorter than marital therapy. The sad truth is, a marriage may dissolve well before the fruits of therapy ever materialize.
As explained elsewhere (click blue link below), conventional relationship counseling is not necessarily about repairing the relationship. Traditional marriage counselors have no predisposition as to whether a couple stays together or separates. By contrast, Dr. Newberger sets relationship reconciliation as the goal. As the architect of the "Reconciliation Model of Peacemaking," his expertise is promoting healthy and harmonious relationships. He will work hard to make your marriage a healthier, happier one!
