St Louis Marriage Therapy, LLC offers outpatient mental health services in St. Louis County for Adult Therapy, Couples and Marriage Therapy, Pre-Marital Counseling, and Sex Therapy. Author of the book "Pre-Marital Counseling: A Guide for Clinicians"(April 2016), Angela Skurtu helps individuals and couples develop the tools needed to improve their lives and personal relationships.
Therapy and counseling are a collaborative process between the client and the therapist. During your first one or two sessions, your therapist will set goals for what you want to accomplish during therapy. Your therapist will seek an understanding (assessment) of you and your family’s needs, challenges, history and values in order to create an effective, individualized plan for your treatment.
After getting on the same page about the plan, sessions focus on building skills that help you live a more fulfilling life. You can expect some sessions to cover specific issues you are going through in the moment, and other sessions that focus more on life skills such as parent coaching, sexual education, better conflict resolution, relationship building, boundary setting, etc.
Ultimately, therapy is about helping you achieve the quality of life you desire. You decide what is covered in therapy, and you decide how to get the most out of your sessions. I will help by offering motivation, giving specific strategies to improve the situation, and homework assignments designed to help you follow through with your goals.
