Dr. Butch Losey
I work specifically with couples who are recovering from infidelity, are dealing with difficulties in communication, find it difficult to talk without arguing, or have problems intimately connecting. My process for couples therapy is systemic, transformational and experiential. My hope is that you will gain a greater understanding of yourself and your partner, which will create transformation in your relationship. I create the session experience so that you will consistently experience each other in a positive, growth-oriented way. You will not come in and "chat with the therapist" about the problem, but work with each other as I coach you through necessary and difficult discussions so that you can create transformative change in your relationship. You will be encouraged to implement healthy strategies, challenged to stop problematic behaviors and taught skills to be a stronger, better couple.
Families today come in all shapes and sizes. And although no family shape or size is bad in itself, dealing with changes or conflicting needs can be hard. Adults and kids in today's families face the challenges that past generations never had to deal with. We face divorce and step-family issues, kids who can't seem to get along with parents, brothers and sisters or other kids. Single parent families, gay and lesbian family members, grandparents raising grandchildren. Some kids just struggle to succeed, either at home or at school, despite tremendous efforts on everyone's part. I work with individuals or families to help them create attainable goals and plans to reach these goals successfully. My focus is on strengths and solutions.
My interest is to work with children, adolescents, and early adulthood for general mental health. I am also part of a grant that focuses on providing support to transition-aged youth with visual impairments who are transitioning from school to further education or the world of work. I can help with depressive disorders, anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorders. I can work with families and can serve as a liaison between school and family.
Are you always a little on edge? Feeling empty or as if something is unresolved? Intuitively feeling as if a piece of yourself is missing and unsure why or what it is? Let’s work together to help empower you to your highest capabilities and self understanding! My eclectic use of Dialectical Behavioral, Internal Family Systems and EMDR therapies will assist you in gaining a better sense of self, inner peace and deeper self knowledge for a future worth living and loving. I am a general EMDR trained practitioner able to use EMDR for: eating disorders, couples therapy framework, trauma, depression, anxiety, panic, and in general areas of life that seem to be distressing in a cyclical capacity. There is not a “one size fit all” approach to EMDR. It is exceptionally client centered. We will work together to determine the right mechanics for you, within appointments.
Cincinnati As a systemic couples and family counselor, my interactive treatment approach is to provide support and practical feedback to assist clients as we resolve current problems and long-standing patterns. For over 20 years I have worked in an agency and community counseling setting with youth and their families allowing me to be productive with clients from many stages of life. I have also worked on the Clermont County crisis hotline for 10 years. I draw on a variety of styles and techniques to incorporate what will be most helpful for each client and family utilizing systemic family therapy. Specialty include depression, oppositional behavior as well as risk assessment and crisis intervention for youth and young adults. Each client (individual or family) is personally assisted as we work together to build on their strengths and identify a plan to achieve their life goals.
