Business Description: (ANGIE'S LIST TOP 5%) "My personal mission is to help people make real change in their life and overcome self-limiting patterns. As both a PhD Psychologist and Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with over 28 years of experience I work with a broad range of life problems for both individuals and couples. My approach to therapy is multi-level, using a wide variety of techniques, and is highly influenced by the executive coaching I do with leaders in business. Clients often give feedback they appreciate I’m more involved and active compared to past therapy they’ve experienced, rather than just listening without much comment." ANGIE'S LIST SERVICE AWARD Dr. McCarthy has received the Angie's List Super Service Award for ranking in the top 5% for counseling-marriage/relationship based on consistent "A" grade client ratings (unsolicited by him). COUPLES THERAPY After working with couples for over 25 years Dr. McCarthy developed in 2010 a new approach for marriage, relationship success, and couples counseling. His Relationship Co-Coaching for Dynamic Growth model challenges many currently accepted beliefs about romantic relationships and what it takes to have a successful marriage such as “I shouldn’t have to change my behavior; just accept me the way I am.” Rather, the relationship is seen as a dynamic growth process for learning how to become more loving partners through mutual coaching. Dr. McCarthy helps couples break negative relationship patterns sabotaging their happiness to unblock deeper feelings of love and happiness. Each partner seeks to clearly identify his or her own core negative relationship pattern and helps the other change through mutual, respectful coaching. Blaming-complaining is eliminated and commitment is made to open feedback and communication. Couples previously unable to break long-standing recurring patterns learn new skills for effective communication to restore and deepen love/closeness. For more details click on Dr. McCarthy's website. See Dr. McCarthy’s new self-help book for couples below. INDIVIDUAL THERAPY AND COACHING Dr. McCarthy’s work with individuals is highly supportive, yet challenging. The focus is on breaking self-limiting beliefs and behaviors causing life unhappiness, whether in symptoms of stress, anxiety, depression, work, or relationships. PERSONAL NOTE by Tim McCarthy, PhD (For Couples) "There's nothing more important than the relationship with your partner in life. It requires skills and competency just like anything else. No one ever told us this because society requires absolutely no knowledge or education about long-term relationship success and marriage. Subsequently, the divorce rate is so very high. If you really want to have a happy marriage, then be proactive, take an intelligent approach and help ‘coach’ one another to new love & happiness." (For individuals) "Don't accept any area of unhappiness in your life—challenge yourself to develop new insights and capabilities. With the right attitude and new skills you may be able to overcome problems and achieve new things you didn't think were possible!
