COUPLE COUNSELING & AFFAIR RECOVERY

_____________________

Couple Counseling

FOR RELATIONSHIP REPAIR

COUPLE COUNSELING AND AFFAIR RECOVERY WITH OPEN DOOR THERAPY IS COMPASSIONATE, PROFESSIONAL, AND COMPETENT. IT BEGINS WITH THE PREMISE THAT THE CORNERSTONE OF A SECURE RELATIONSHIP REQUIRES TRUST, SAFETY AND EMOTIONAL RESPONSIVENESS. WHEN THESE ELEMENTS ARE COMPROMISED, PAIN AND HEARTACHE FOLLOW. FINDING YOUR WAY BACK CAN FEEL DAUNTING.

WHETHER YOU HAVE A FEW ISSUES TO SORT OUT, ARE DEALING WITH THE TRAUMA OF INFIDELITY, OR HAVE A COMPLICATED RELATIONSHIP MATTER, YOU CAN TAKE COMFORT IN KNOWING THAT YOU'VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE.

THE PATH BACK BEGINS WHEN PARTNERS BEGIN TO RESTORE TRUST AND EMOTIONAL SAFETY SO THAT EACH PERSON FEELS SAFE ENOUGH TO BE VULNERABLE ONE AGAIN.

WE CAN HELP YOU FIND YOUR WAY BACK.

NICE TO MEET YOU

Terri DiMatteo, LPC

You may be wondering, "Can she help?" After all, this is the most important question when choosing a therapist or seeking a marriage counselor. My success in helping couples repair their relationship begins with the notion that frames the romantic relationship as a sexual and emotional intimate bond. This entwinement of sexual and emotional intimacy woven together bonds a romantic pair and helps assure fidelity.A strongly bonded pair tends to find themselves in a reliable, stable, and functional relationship. These two strands work in tandem, ensuring both people in the relationship are loved and desired. When one or both areas of this intimate bond breaks down, the relationship weakens. Relationships in this weakened state leave both parties feeling vulnerable, alone, and unloved. Feeling distant, unloved, and unsure in your relationship is painful and negatively impacts other areas of your life. That's no way to live. Getting your relationship right means getting your life right.And this is where I can help.My area of expertise is helping a distant, painful, confusing, and complicated relationship progress to stable, satisfied, and fulfilled. I've developed an approach that helps couples restore their romantic bond with tools and techniques that are effective, time, and cost-efficient in delivering enduring results. There's no need to suffer the pain of a distant or conflicted relationship. This New Jersey marriage counselor is ready to help! Begin today.
