Delray Beach, FL, September 17, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Registered Marriage and Family Therapist Intern Mark Jacobson, M.S. of the newly opened Brief Counseling Center in Delray Beach, Florida (http://briefcounselingcenter.com/) frequently asks new clients seeking couples counseling, “Would you like to improve your relationship so you can argue less, communicate better, be less angry, be a better parent, or just be happier?" And invariably, the answer is a resounding, “Yes!”
Trained in marriage and family therapy and a graduate of Nova Southeastern University, Jacobson practices what’s known as Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), which research suggests has the potential to create lasting, positive change in a relationship in just a few sessions, compared to other traditional forms of therapy—typically ten or fewer.
Jacobson explains: “My clients and I work together to identify strengths and resources they may not have even been aware they had, then they leverage those strengths into practical, everyday solutions they can use as soon as they leave my office. The approach appeals to my clients because it’s very practical and effective.” He adds that focusing on solutions rather than only on problems means couples can avoid the trap of endlessly analyzing and explaining and implement new, more preferred behaviors more quickly than other forms of psychotherapy.
Using the therapeutic tools and techniques he’s been trained in, and incorporating his own empathy, warmth, curiosity and sense of humor into the couples counseling process, Jacobson says that he works with clients to create a vision of their future without their relationship problems, and take steps to make it a reality.
The new therapy practice is located in Delray Beach, Florida, at 5300 West Atlantic Avenue, Suite 408. The location is convenient to couples, families and individuals in the Delray Beach, Boynton Beach and Boca Raton areas. One-hour sessions are available by appointment at (754) 444-1458.
