Fred Talisman MFT 20+ years relationship saving marriage counselor. CAN YOUR RELATIONSHIP BE SAVED? I've helped lots of clients, who were on the verge of losing their relationship for good, to stop their breakup even if they feared it was beyond saving and even if they were the only one who wants to save it. In my experience, most relationships end unnecessarily and the breakup could have been prevented, even if there's been cheating, with the right kind of help. Also, I've helped to save lots of relationships where only one person got my direct help.

I am different from other therapists. I understand that if you were alive in the past, before psychotherapy existed, you may right now be seeking a priest, rabbi, shaman, or other spiritual counselor. I believe strongly that psychotherapy is simply a modern, secular option for people to talk about the ultimate concerns. These include our fear of death, our fear of being alone, the possibility that the universe is meaningless and the problem of free will. I am not a priest, but my office is a safe space where you can explore being alive. I welcome such emotions as boredom, anger, anxiety and awe.

Throughout our lives, we encounter a number of spaces where we feel our voices silenced. Continual experiences of being quieted can lead us to internalize messages that we don’t have the permission to speak – questioning whether or not to start therapy is no exception to this. As a queer, Korean-Japanese American, there have been countless times when I’ve been told that I’m not man enough, that I’m unfit for love, and that I don’t have a story to be heard. Much of my work is informed by the idea that, in order for us to heal, we must first feel like our perspective matters and that our struggles are deserving of support.

I am a clinical psychologist with thirty years of experience in psychotherapy. I work with people struggling with those emotional and relationship problems, including depression, anxiety, intimacy and commitment issues, and the many subtle forms of self-defeating behavior that may limit their success and happiness. Sometimes these problems can be satisfactorily dealt with in a short time. Often they cannot. I like to work with people in both categories; but I most enjoy the challenges and rewards of working with those who must choose the longer path in search of a better solution, and of deeper self-knowledge.

At this point, you're probably sick and tired of being sick and tired. You feel like you don't have a voice in life and you're searching for purpose and meaning. You want to live life without the shame of your past trauma and fulfill the potential that you have inside of you. You could be struggling with the abuse that you experienced as a child, cultural confines that still affect you today, anger issues from pent up childhood rage, depression and anxiety due to never having "a voice" or not "being seen".

Hearing your children playing in the next room, you jump off the couch to join them. As soon as your feet hit the floor, you feel crushed by sharp, unrelenting pain. It’s impossible to walk across the room, shower, or fix food without paying the price the next day – and needing another injection because the pain is ten times worse. Chronic pain sucks! You’ve tried every treatment your doctor recommended, but the medical system has failed you in so many ways. The worries are becoming more extreme for you and your family. You cry in your bedroom closet because you don't want your children to see you feeling hopeless.
