WHAT YOU WILL LEARN IN YOUR MARRIAGE COUNSELING SESSIONS…
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN IN YOUR MARRIAGE COUNSELING SESSIONS…
At Naya Clinics , we have learnt that most couples are completely oblivious to how they relate to each other , how they come across to one other, how they communicate with each other, and how they are perceived by their partner.
Furthermore, most of our clients we see in relationship therapy are entirely unaware to their own reactions to stress, how they deal with conflict, why exactly sets them off when dealing with their partner, and what is it about their partner that drives them off the deep end.
For example, take this quick basic relational test.
There are 6 main types of coping mechanisms.
Fight, Flight, Flee, Freeze, Hide, and Submit.
Can you identify which one of those is your go to coping mechanism in a fight with your partner?
Do you know WHY whichever one you use is the one you go keep doing over and over again?
Can you think of a better way to get your needs met than what you are currently doing?
Answering these 3 questions alone can give you a huge advantage in your intimate relationships, and that is only a small part of what we will help you do during your marriage and couples counseling sessions at Naya Clinics.

WHO BENEFITS FROM RELATIONSHIP COUNSELING?
WHO BENEFITS FROM RELATIONSHIP COUNSELING?
You need marriage and relationship counseling
When you aren’t communicating.
When most of your communication is critical and non supportive.
When you don”t feel like you can trust your partner
When you are punishing each other by being mean to one another
When you don’t see yourself as a team
When you can’t be honest with each other
When you are having an affair or want to have an affair.
When you feel the only way to stay together is if your partner changes who they are
When you are not being intimate and not having sex.
In marriage and couples counseling, the relationship is the focus. Naya Clinics marriage counselors will challenge you to work on your personal self growth and self discovery in parallel to our couples’ work. In fact, we will often act in the role of both a marriage counselor and an individual counselor, and see the partners separately for individual counseling as part of the relationship counseling process.
As with any type of psychotherapy, what you get out of marriage counseling depends on what you want from it and how engaged you are in the process. Most of our marriage counseling clients following 3-4 sessions report feeling hopeful, heard, better understood, and that the quality of communication with their partner has improved. At Naya Clinics, our certified Marriage counselors are both trained and talented in helping couples gain much needed perspective and reframing their view of different situations in a way that brings clarity and understanding. Talking to our certified therapists, is an excellent approach to clarify the real challenge your relationship is facing, versus the perceived challenge that you may believe you are facing. Most of our clients are taken aback by the 3rd or 4th session with us that the challenge they are facing is very different from the challenge they though they were facing when they first came in to see one of our certified marriage counselors. At Naya Clinics, we feel privileged and honored to have helped thousands transform their relationships and their lives.¬† Some people need help with a specific problem to move forward with confidence, whereas others have a number of points they wish to discuss. Either way, a Naya Clinics certified marriage counselor will help you both to be equipped with all the necessary tools to progress your marriage in the right direction.
At Naya Clinics, our main aim is to re-connect or better connect the two of you so you feel safe and bonded in your relationship. Some couples are happy and just want to solidify their relationship even more but many couples we counsel are unhappy and those couples have certain aspects in common. Usually, their relationships involve criticism, defensiveness, contempt and failure to hear each other. As certified professional marriage counselors we are there to guide both of you through each of these negative behaviors and we will help you to constructively process your feelings, creating building blocks for your happy, healthy future.
Our Certified and experienced marriage counselors and couples therapists we see many couples who are completely unaware of how they interact with each other. They no longer know how they speak to each other, look at each other or the effect they have on one another. Many don’t even realize why certain behavior by their partner irritates them or how to manage their lives together successfully. We carefully explore the possibilities and help both of you cope by applying tried and tested techniques, helping you to understand your approach to each other and what will work best going forward.

Counseling( also known as therapy ) is “talk therapy”, an approach to psychotherapy that involves no use of therapeutic drugs, and is focused on establishing a high level of collaboration between a professional counselor/ therapist and yourself.
The collaboration aims at addressing your immediate psychological needs, as well as examining and correcting erroneous self-held beliefs, negative thought patters, and harmful relationship patterns that are distressing you or causing problems in one of the major areas of life (Home, work, and school).

Marriage counseling is exactly as it sounds. It is an evidence-based method that involves a certified professional relationship counselor guiding you and your partner to get the most out of your partnership and to resolve conflict and discord. Sometimes referred to as couples therapy or relationship counseling, it uses psychotherapy, which opens up the avenues in communication, intimacy, comfort and understanding in a marriage, enabling both partners to improve and strengthen their bond.
Many get confused about the difference between a counselor and a psychiatrist. The main difference is that a psychiatrist is a medical doctor trained in counseling. As such, they see your concerns through a medical model lens, which stipulates that concerns stem from a biological problem, and thus the solution is to administer medicine to correct the imbalance.
In contrast, Counselors and psychotherapists view you from a “strength-based approach”, where we collaborate with you to discover the resilience and strength you have, and leverage that to empower you to effectively address your challenges.
At Naya Clinics our approach to therapy draws from the humanistic school of psychotherapy and the existential school of psychotherapy to create our own unique approach Positive Existential Therapy PET developed by our founder Sam Nabil
What Is A Life Coach?
A life coach is a person who helps you understand what your personal goals are and assists you to create a plan to achieve those goals.
Life coaches do this by providing you with Life coaching service. This could be either a short-term or a long-term, but it typically involves an action-based plan of action.
A life coach is not always a healthcare provider or a medical professional, though some life coaches go through training programs and unofficial certifications. At Naya Clinics, all our life coaches are ALSO licensed therapists, giving you the best of both worlds.

HOW MUCH IS YOUR FEE FOR MARRIAGE COUNSELING/THEARPY/Life COACHING Services?
We use a sliding scale in the practice to determine the counseling fee based of the combined annual income of the household (your income plus the income of your significant other).
When you request an appointment with our therapists or coaches using our online portal, our secure and HIPPA compliant client portal will automatically send you a full intake packet with all the information you will need including the sliding scale, as well as the information you will need to fill out before your first appointment with your counselor, therapist or coach.
Your information is only to secure your appointment, and you can go back to the portal at any time – until 48 hours before- to cancel your therapy appointment at no charge.

We provide all clients with receipts and or super bills to file with their insurance companies for our Relationship Counseling, Family Counseling and Individual Counseling Services. Life Coaching Services are typically not billable by most insurance providers.
Most of our clients who chose to file an out of network claim for our services get reimbursed a substantial portion of our fee by their insurance. We do not work with insurance directly.
WHY ARE YOUR SERVICES OUT OF NETWORK?
Working with insurance in most cases means we must diagnose you with a mental health illness. Most of the clients we see do not have a mental health illness and are rather dealing with stress or a curve ball that life threw their way in their relationships or at work.
We therefore find it very counterproductive that insurance companies would require us to provide a mental health diagnosis. This is especially troubling because your diagnosis would stay on your medical record for ever.
Insurance companies also often insist on establishing time limits for counseling in most cases.
We believe a diagnosis and how much you want to stay in marriage counseling or therapy should be your choice, and not the choice of your insurance company.
We have therefore chosen to operate out of network and leave you with the choice. You can apply for out of network reimbursements or chose to keep your work with us private
When you have made your out of pocket payment to us, you will automatically receive a bill/invoice in your email.
For easy and convenient reimbursement for your out of network insurance claim, we recommend you use the getbetter app on your phone.
My colleagues and myself practice out of 5 different locations in the Cincinnati area and suburbs as well as Northern Kentucky. We also operate out of 4 locations in the Denver Colorado area.
In most cases, our clients are never more than a 10 t0 15 minutes drive away from one of our locations.
In Denver Colorado
Also you can always work with us online from wherever you may be.
If a location(s) is not available from the drop down menu, this means we are fully booked at this location. Please pick your next preferred location or consider our online therapy options. You can also email us and we can try to fit you in your preferred location if a spot opens up.
