How does your business stand out?

I am a licensed marriage and family therapist with over 13 years of experience working with individuals, couples, and families. As a relationship rejuvenation expert, I developed a unique method that employs brief strategic techniques with a make-sense, solution-focused approach. In the fast-paced world we live in, time is a rare commodity. My job is to help you identify the causes of your relationship dissatisfaction so that you may achieve happiness without spending endless hours in costly therapy sessions. It is my belief that you are more likely to achieve and maintain positive changes in your life when you are able to see that your efforts are producing concrete, significant, and immediate improvements.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I enjoy the fact that I get to have the privilege of helping others take charge of their life and pursue their happily ever after. Working as a licensed marriage and family therapist and a relationship coach allowed me to grow as a person through helping others achieve their personal and professional goals.

    My husband and I had communication issues that were detrimental to our marriage. In the beginning it started out with us discussing our main problem and from there realized that there were other issues beneath that - but that were still directly related to our core issue. Talal revealed to us many ways of seeing each other's side, showing us (and us realizing) both our strengths and weaknesses we each brought to the marriage, and gave us tools and 'homework' to work on those issues. Each assignment made us really work on ourselves, sometimes not knowing if we would overcome that obstacle but it really was amazing to see how Talal guided us and gave knowledgeable insight - and not taking sides or shaming. Do we have a ways to go in continuing to work on our marriage and communication, absolutely, but we feel so much more confident in tackling it with respect and love. Thank you.

    Our marriage is much stronger, thanks to Talal. In fact, we've insisted that our daughter and her fiancé see him for pre-marital counseling so that they can avoid the same mistakes we made in our marriage so that they can have a healthier start in their life together.

    He is an excellent therapist who really knows his stuff. Just be prepared to hear the truth. Some people aren't ready to hear the truth, but he always said he is a mirror not an echo. I liked that. His straight forward approach helped me get through my problems without being able to lie to myself about my motivations.

    I had a difficult time managing my stress and prioritizing my time. I’m happy that I reached out to Talal because he helped me figure out what was the root cause of all my stress and then helped me to de-clutter my life so that I could focus on what was important to me. I look back on how I was before working with Talal and I’m amazed at how much more centered I am. Thank you, Talal, for everything.

Q&A

My cost is $120 per 50-minute session.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
All my new clients start with a complementary 15-minute phone consultation where we will also book the first session. In the first session, we will start by completing a detailed assessment of your coaching and counseling needs and setting realistic expectations of the time needed to achieve the desired results. We will work together to identify concrete coaching goals and a specific plan to achieve those goals.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
Clinical Training: •Brief Strategic Family Therapy (BSFT) •Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) •Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) •Narrative Therapy •Substance Abuse and Addiction Treatment •Trauma Informed Treatment Education: M.S., Marriage and Family Therapy California State University, Chico
How did you get started doing this type of work?
When I was an undergraduate, I took an internship in a counseling center and fell in love with the job after being able to help my clients problem solve and improve their lives. It was amazing to see people come into the counseling center hurting and in need and see them progress to positive results through a series of sessions. People really do improve with counseling and I wanted to be a part of this. What I enjoy most about working with my clients is that it is one of the few jobs where you get the opportunity to grow as a person and learn while you help your clients to grow and learn. As a counselor and life coach, I developed a unique method that employs Brief Strategic techniques with a make-sense, solution-focused approach. In the fast-paced world we live in, time is a rare commodity. My job is to help you identify the causes of your life dissatisfaction so that you may achieve happiness without spending endless hours in costly therapy sessions. It is my belief that you are more likely to achieve and maintain positive changes in your life when you are able to see that your efforts are producing concrete, significant, and immediate improvements. Even though I am clinically trained and licensed as a marriage and family therapist, I believe that traditional therapy is limited in its ability to achieve satisfactory, tangible results. the idea for the 10-session approach was developed as an alternative to therapy.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Over the past 13 years, I have had the privilege of working with many couples and individuals from different backgrounds, issues, and levels of life dissatisfaction. Here is a list of some of the common issues that I helped my clients resolve successfully •Conflict Management •Intimacy Challenges •Trust Issues •Blended Family Issues •Communication •Infidelity •Extended Family/In-Laws •Addiction •Traumatic Events •Domestic Violence •Life Changing Transitions •Premarital Counseling •Separation or Divorce •Parenting or Co-Parenting •Relationship and Family Issues •Career Success •Goal Setting •Personal Development •Life-Changing Transitions •Self-Esteem •Mind & Body Wellness •Time Management •Physical Fitness •Spirituality
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I enjoy offering many relationship workshops and goal-setting classes throughout the year. One of my best workshops was a Wine and Hors D'oeuvres Relationship Vision Board party. Everyone brought their favorite wine an I supplied the hors d'oeuvres and supplies for the vision boards. We worked together to determine tangible goals and then created vision boards to help us visualize those goals. Everyone had a great time.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Coaching and counseling is a very personal service. As such, there is a variety of therapists, counselors and coaches offering a multitude of services to fit anyone's needs. Get to know your potential counselor and understand their approach to determine whether or not this person is a good match for your needs and learning style. Ask a lot of questions.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
What are the specific goals you would like to accomplish through counseling and coaching? What are the resources available for you to achieve those goals? What are some of the obstacles that may get in the way of your goals? Are you ready to make changes in your life to achieve your goals?
