Learn How To Communicate

Most of us engage in communication every day. Most of us also know that communicating with others can be a difficult and frustrating experience. There are times when we mean well, but because of the way we say what we say, our message is misunderstood, with unintended and undesirable consequences.

If you are a couple in Neenah, Menasha, Oshkosh, Appleton and the Wisconsin Fox River Valley and could use help with communication call Dr. Terri today.

Learning How to Connect with Your Partner

The 5 Love Languages® has helped countless couples identify practical and powerful ways to express love, simply by using the appropriate love language. Many husbands and wives who had spent years struggling through marriages they thought were loveless discovered one or both spouses had long been showing love through messages that weren’t getting through. By recognizing their different love languages, they witnessed the rebirth of the love they thought had been gone for good.

Dr. Terri uses some of the information from The 5 Love Languages to help you reconnect with your partner.  For Couples in Neenah, Menasha, Oshkosh, Appleton and the Wisconsin Fox River Valley who want to reconnect with your partner contact Inner Strength Counseling & Recovery.

Trauma & Trust – the 2 biggies after an affair.  One of the biggest questions people ask after an affair has been discovered is about trust. The betrayed wants to know if they can ever simply relax, enjoy and trust their partner again without being threatened, feeling insecure and reliving the affair in their minds. Generally the one who betrayed is ready to move on and can’t figure out how to help their partner do the same.  This is because an affair is a traumatic event.  Moving through the trauma is the ticket to the other side.  Using EMDR (see EMDR/trauma tab) to treat the trauma helps couples heal and move forward.  Trusting isn’t easy, but it is difficult to trust without healing the trauma that causes emotional distress to re-emerge.

It is quite common that the hurt party shows up in the office unable to sleep at night, having feelings of depression or suffering anxiety and panic attacks.  Typically they may be prescribed an antidepressant for the first time in their life.  There is no doubt that affairs take an emotional toll on both parties.  We can work together to develop a natural way to overcome this stress and anxiety without using medication as a front line defense.  After all, you are the hurt party and now are suffering the emotional consequences.  Let’s get you feeling better, naturally so you can then help save your marriage.

Dr. Sell realizes that rebuilding trust after an affair is no easy matter. One way to begin is to make a conscious decision to reframe your beliefs about what is possible in YOUR life and what you want for your experience.

Couples in Recovery

If one or the other or both of you are in recovery from alcohol or other addictions we would love to have you here!  Dr. Terri has specialized training in working with couples in recovery.  Traditionally therapists ask that you gain sobriety prior to coming into couples therapy.  However, Dr. Terri takes a new approach and works with couples in all levels of recovery.  This is cutting edge and works to keep marriages healthy and committed in all phases of recovery.

If you have decided that moving on together isn’t in the cards for you.  Lets work together on how to say your goodbyes to the relationship in a way that isn’t more damaging emotionally.

Have you experienced an event in your life that is causing you significant distress? Are you having difficulty sleeping, concentrating and otherwise feeling stuck in the event? Do your relationships suffer due to feelings that are stuck in the past? Individual treatment can help.

Perhaps you have experienced a single trauma such as a car accident, a marital affair or multiple traumas such as child abuse that seem to be running your life. The time is now to stop suffering and start living! Trauma treatment can help free you from the events of the past and help you create a life worth celebrating.

Treating trauma is a specialty and it pops up more than you think. I am a certified Consultant in a trauma treatment process called Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing or EMDR. Certification means I have gone beyond the basic training and received specialized supervision to provide this technique and can supervise other therapists as well.  There are very few certified EMDR consultants in Neenah, Menasha or Appleton WI.

 Who Does EMDR Help?

EMDR can be effective for anyone whose life has been impacted by a traumatic event. Teralyn will work with teens and adults whose traumatic experiences are preventing them from living the life they want.

Scientific research has established EMDR as effective for post traumatic stress. However, clinicians also have reported success using EMDR in treatment of the following conditions:

  • panic attacks
  • complicated grief
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • disturbing memories
  • phobias
  • pain disorders
  • eating disorders
  • performance anxiety
  • stress reduction
  • addictions
  • sexual and/or physical abuse
  • body dysmorphic disorders

What is EMDR?

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is an approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma. EMDR is a set of standardized protocols that incorporates the use of bilateral stimulation into therapy (eye movements). To date, EMDR has helped an estimated two million people of all ages relieve many types of psychological stress. Read EMDRIA’s clinical definition of EMDR.
