  • A Response to Jed Diamond, PhD about Marriage Counseling

    On Monday, February 23rd, I noticed an article entitled "Why Marriage Counseling Leads to Divorce" written by Jed Diamond, PhD on the Good Men Project website.  As my trade includes dating, premarital and marriage counseling, I was intrigued.  I first began by assessing the author, Jed Diamond, PhD, who states that he has 40 years of experience with marriage therapy and holds a masters in social work with a doctorate in international health.

Video Counseling

At Trahan Counseling, we often work with individuals and couples via I Chat and Skype.  Due to the sensitive nature of counseling, we are thoughtful about situations in which video counseling may not be appropriate.  Video counseling can be a helpful tool for meeting with your therapist long distance.  Learn more about our video counseling program.

Our practice is based on 30 years of relationship research. We utilize training from The Gottman Institute, to provide the most effective research based therapy.
