Living in these modern times is more complicated and demanding than they have ever been before. Often people need a little help in coping with the decisions that they have to make and the relationships that they have in their lives. Too often people seek assistance in an activity or substance that is unwise or even unhealthy and it becomes a repetitive behavior that they cannot seem to break free of. At Mars & Venus our therapists offer Hackensack addiction counseling using proven methods to help sufferers rid themselves of addiction and help those living with them cope.

Addiction comes in many forms from a physical need and dependence to drugs or alcohol to compulsive behaviors such as food addictions or gambling. Anything that the person cannot stop doing has the potential to be addictive and harmful even those behaviors that are ostensibly beneficial such as exercising when it turns to an obsessive drive that controls behavior. Our Hackensack addiction counseling services treat the addict and counsel those in a relationship with them. The first step is for the addict to realize that they have the addiction and engage in treatment for that addiction, only then can he/she begin to deal with their relationships. For instance, we offer couples counseling because research definitively shows that when one person in a relationship suffers from an addiction the other person suffers greatly and the relationship is invariably strained often to the breaking point.

Whether it is a couple or a whole family the presence of an addicted member can pull the whole relationship apart, every member of the family even the youngest ones feel the pressure. Hackensack addiction counseling believes that family or couples therapy is an essential part of addiction treatment process. The therapy is done in an atmosphere where every member of the relationship feels free to express his/her feelings. If addiction is plaguing you or a member of your family please give our New Jersey Centers for Counseling a call.

Teaneck Child Counseling

Teaneck Child Counseling

Childhood can be a trying and confusing time for both the young child and its parents. The stresses on the child only grow stronger as it ages into adolescence and the teen years. Teaneck child counseling at our Mars & Venus Counseling Center has been aiding children and families as they face the many difficult problems associated with growth, behavior and relationship development. Our counseling center helps patients with a wide variety of issues and problems from relationship issues to family problems to addiction to grief counseling to depression to self-esteem issues and more. Our expertly trained staff includes counselors that specialize in these various areas.

Our Teaneck child counseling center offers individual specialized counseling services with expertise in varying symptoms and diagnosis to meet the needs of young people. Whether it is a behavioral issue or trouble building relationships, low self-esteem or body image issues our center employs counselors who have extensive training in working with young children, even those that are not highly verbal or maybe introverted. There are also counselors who have a great deal of experience working with teenage clients whose issues may stem from peer interactions, relationships, sexual issues or confusion, body image, bullying or authority issues and family relationships. The teenage years are a critical time for most developing young adults and during this time many teens turn to their peers or social media for guidance, which may not be the place parents want them to turn. Often when parents have a hard time reaching their adolescent children our counselors can offer them a trusting adult to turn to.

Our Teaneck child counseling center offers young peoples’ therapy in individual sessions with just the child and the counselor or as a family therapy session. Often we may start with just the child, or the child and parents separately and then turn to a family therapy setting later in the process. Having the family together during counseling is beneficial because it can help resolve any issues that exist between the parents and child or among siblings. Family sessions work well with teenage clients because the therapist can help establish a dialogue between the members of the family, especially the teen and parents, preventing discussions from automatically turning into arguments before the issues are settled. If your child is having trouble socially, behaviorally or in school bring them by our counseling center where they can be evaluated in a stress-free setting.
