The Reason I Became A Helping Professional

The Staff at the Mars & Venus Counseling Center is a small group private practice of talented and experienced clinicians. Each specializes in different areas of counseling, coaching, and psychotherapy for adults, couples, adolescents, and children. Our offices are in Teaneck, Oradell, and Ramsey, conveniently located in Bergen County, northern New Jersey.

Individual Counseling:  We all bring our unresolved issues from our past into our adulthood. These blocks create obstacles to our individual success and happiness. We have studied and integrated theories and practice methods of many leaders in the field of individual counseling. Our Mars & Venus training has added numerous tools in helping one overcome his/her blocks to success and happiness.

Couples / Marital Counseling: At the Mars & Venus Counseling Center, we use the book "Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus" as the basic premise and guidance for couples work. Dr. John Gray has developed a complete clinical approach to couples counseling that integrates all of his ideas. This is the systematic approach used here, as taught and licensed by Dr. John Gray. You will learn how to understand, respect, and honor the differences between yourself and your partner. You will learn what your needs are, as well as your partner’s, and how to meet them. Another major aspect of healing and growing a relationship is improving communication skills.

Children and Adolescent Counseling:  Specialized and compassionate professional services with expertise in the varying symptoms and diagnoses for children, adolescents, and families.

Telephone / Live Video / Long Distance Counseling:  Special circumstances could make telephone counseling perfect for you. Many people maintain a very difficult schedule or travel frequently. Some have difficulties with child-care issues. Illness or disabilities could limit mobility. Others may not be fortunate to have a trained Mars & Venus Counselor conveniently located near them. Telephone Counseling/Live Video is very effective.
