What is the meaning of the Serenity Prayer?

The Serenity Prayer means letting go of situations beyond your control and taking action toward things within your control. It also means being able to know when things are within your control and when things are beyond your control.

“God, grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, and Wisdom to know the difference.”

The Serenity Prayer is based on four virtues:

  1. Serenity
  2. Acceptance
  3. Courage
  4. Wisdom

                                                                         *****INFIDELITY***

         **ONE OF OUR BIGGEST REFERRALS TO OUR PRATICE IS INFIDELITY, DISHONESTY & LACK OF TRANSPARENCY: We have realized that some Emotional and Physical Affairs are in fact, INFATUATIONS & or  LIMERENCE and therefore, limits the Person's Ability to Think and Reason Properly. It can make them Act Reckless and Out of Control. Therefore, we treat the Infatuation as an Addiction and Teach the ART OF DEEP LOVE

. *****In Addition, Reasons why people Cheat:  Out of Anger, Desire to get Revenge, Needs that are not being met, Loneliness, Boredom, Feelings of  being Neglected, Being Loved Bombed by the person who is Pursuing you, Sexual needs not being satisfied, or just the opportunity  presents itself. All in all, there are many reasons why people Cheat, not just one. We will help our Couples Learn why this has happened & Help our Couples Heal & Find the Pathway to Forgiveness, in order to move forward and try to find the Silver-Lining. **Many of our Couples have overcome these Challenges & Now have a much better Relationship in so many ways.

  •                                                    *****DEEP  LOVE  &  INTIMACY****

  1) Unconditional Love, the Selfless Act of Loving Someone with Full Acceptance and Without Expecting anything in                     Return.

 2) We figure out what makes the other person Happy & You are Happy to do those things.

 3) Commitment to Continue being Together & Caring about each other Indefinitely.

 4) Willingness to go Deep & have some Vulnerable Conversations is a good sign of Growing Intimacy.

 5) Your Relationship does not fall apart every time you Disagree, Nor are you working hard to avoid conflict because you              do not want to fight. 

6) Your Sex Life is always Evolving which can bring more Intimacy to your Relationship.

 7) Respect for your Opinions, Feelings, Needs, Beliefs & Desires.

 8) Shared Values, Ethics, Morals & Philosophy

 9) Honesty, Trustworthiness & Transparency

 10) Feelings of Safety, Equality & Affection 

11) Creating an Environment where both people Feel Safe Being themselves & Sharing your Thoughts & Feelings which             requires both of you to be Emotionally Available.

 12) TRUST that you Will Not Reject Me, because if I Don't Feel Safe, I will not be able to Share my Deeper Feeling


                                                                       ***NEW TERMINOLOGY:   

    ***Love Bombing:  

Love Bombing is an attempt to influence a person by demonstrations of attention and affection.  It can be used in different ways and for either positive or negative purposes.  Psychologists have identified love bombing as a possible part of a cycle of abuse and have warned against it.

                                                                   ***Gaslighting:

  Gaslighting is Psychological manipulation that makes the recipient question their feeling, instincts and even their sanity (Preys on your Insecurities & Fears).  It is one of the worst forms of dirty fighting and it is used by both men and women. Gaslighting includes a variety of techniques, such as: *Pretending not to understand someone when you do *Labeling your partners thoughts as crazy or imagined *Questioning the other person's memory of events when they remember correctly *Pretending to forget what actually occurred when you actually remember *Denying promises that you know you made *Trivializing the other person's feelings as being too sensitive when their reaction is somewhat normal.

                                                                     ***Stonewalling:

A Defensive Mechanism where someone Emotionally shuts down and Withdraws from a conversation or interaction.                       It can involve refusing to Communicate, Answering questions, or Talking about an issue.

                                                                     ***Trauma Bonding:

 Trauma Bonding are Emotional bonds with an individual that arise from a recurring cyclical pattern of abuse perpetuated by intermittent reinforcement through rewards and punishments.  This process of forming trauma bonds is referred to as trauma bonding or traumatic bonding. This results when the abused person forms an unhealthy bond with the person that abuses them.  The abused person may develop sympathy for  the abusive person, which become reinforced by cycles of abuse, followed by remorse.

                                                                   ***Discernment Workshops:

   When Ending the Relationship is on the Table (by one of you or both of you).  This is a Short Term Decision making Process, lasting anywhere between 1-5 Sessions. Our Workshops Goals are to have Greater Clarity & Confidence regarding the Future of  Your Marriage. This will be Based on a Deeper Understanding of what brought you to the point where Divorce is an Option. In Summary, Our Discernment Workshops Helps the Couple Determine Whether or Not they Should or Want to try to Save their Relationship. This Process Provides and Gives the Couple the Opportunity to be Heard, Understood and Talk about why they are Considering Leaving and Considering Staying. 

                                                                            ***Best Friends:

       ***Most Important we believe Strongly that being Best Friends is the Key to Recovery of Your Deep and Loving Relationship. We therefore, Focus our Attention on being each others (BFF). We want you guys to be able to Support each other, be a Shoulder to cry on, help you through hard times, Celebrate your Achievements and Encourage you to be the Best you can Be. In Short, Someone that you can talk to about everything, and who makes you feel Comfortable without the Fear of Judgement.

                                                             ***The Healing Process for Infidelity:

 This Process is Three Fold: 1) Taking Responsibility of One's Actions & Learning about why this happened, without Blaming the Relationship. 2) Being Sensitive, Compassionate, Empathic & Remorseful to Whom the Person who this Trauma was Committed on  3) Helping the Person Heal in Time & Learn the Art of Forgiveness. Its Almost the same as POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER: A Disorder in which a Person has Difficulty Recovering after Experiencing or Witnessing a Terrifying Event. This PTSD has Recurring Triggers which can last a very long time and which can bring back Memories of the Trauma accompanied by Intense Emotional and Physical Reactions. Feelings include Intense Anger, Hurt & Pain, Helplessness & Powerlessness, Shock, Despair & Hopelessness, Suicidal Ideation, Feelings that Lower our Self-Esteem & Confidence and More...

                                        ***** NARCISSISTIC PERSONALITY DISORDER (NPD)

 **Some of the Characteristics (at least 5) Include:  *Overinflated sense of self-importance *Constant thoughts about being more successful, powerful, smart, loved  or attractive than others. *Feelings of  Superiority and desire to only associate with high-status people *Need for excessive admiration* Sense of entitlement *Willingness to take advantage of others to achieve goals *Lack of understanding and consideration for other people's feelings and needs *Arrogant or snobby behaviors and attitudes. However, we have been successful in teaching these people Sensitivity, Compassion and Empathy in order to be able to relate to your Feelings & Feel Your Feelings, which can lead to Positive Changes. Have Hope (which is Greater than Fear). ***In Addition, Covert Narcissism is the introverted side of  NPD. These people experience the same insecurities as an Overt Narcissist, but internalizes their self-importance, often while hyper-focusing on their Need for Attention. They come across as Introverted, Self-Conscious and Insecure. 

                           ***COMMUNICATION BREAKDOWN**MARRIAGE  RULES & SKILLS

             *****Remember, their are many Challenges, Problems & Issues that all Couples have, but its the Communication Process that Stays Constant Throughout ones Relationship, therefore, the Communication Process Must be Working Effectively.  With a Communication Breakdown, Couples Will Not be able to Resolve their Problems Successfully. 

                                                   **Marriage Rules & Skills are Located above on the left hand side**

                     *** In Addition, we Specialize in *Control and Anger Issues* TRUST & LYING* Co-Dependency Issues* Infidelity Issues* Sex & Intimacy *Alcohol & Substance Abuse, Parenting Issues & Blending Families together, Emotional Abuse, Pre-Marital Workshops, Bi-Polar, (BPD) Borderline Personality Disorder & Narcissistic Personalities & much more.

                                                   *** THE UNCONSCIOUS MIND***

Our Unconscious mind is present without our knowledge (operating under our Radar) in order to Protect us from Psychological Pain and therefore, can Sabotage our CLOSE and LOVING Relationships. We have to make the "Unconscious Mind" Conscious and the "Invisible" Visible (thru Mindfulness & Awareness) in order to understand  our "Inner Child" which is our Unconscious Mind and how it Operates.  

                   ** Our Unconscious Minds tries to Protect You from getting Hurt & Devastated. In Essence, Deep Love means LOVING without FEAR. Deep Love means Vulnerability, not being in Control, which in turn creates much Fear & Anxiety of getting Blind -Sided and Hurt/Devastated. Most of us have been Hurt/Devastated many times in our Lives and therefore, our Unconscious Mind Does Not Want to ever be Hurt again.

** OUR ALCOHOL & ADDICTIONS WORKSHOPS:

                    OUR INTENSIVE OUTPATIENT TREATMENT HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO KEEP YOU OUT OF THE HOSPITAL/INPATIENT & INSTEAD KEEP YOU WITH  YOUR FAMILY WHILE CONTINUING TO WORK ON YOUR JOB. **See Above on the left hand side.
