Spanish Speaking Therapists In Weston

If English is your second language, it is challenging to live in a culture where Spanish is not the primary language. It is important to improve your skills by immersing yourself in an English speaking culture. Psychotherapy, however is a different story. If you are not fluent in English, your brain processes information in a different way. When you a talking about emotionally driven matters, you simply cannot process information while you are translating information. If you are not strong in the English language, you should not have to settle for an English speaking therapist or psychologist. It is important in the therapeutic process to speak in the “mother tongue.” It is the only way you will truly get everything out of the process that you deserve. At Weston PsychCare, two of our therapists speak Spanish. Our nutritionist also speaks Spanish. And most importantly, our administrative office speaks Spanish as well!

RELATIONSHIPS OF LOVE: DID I MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE?

Most people have heard of the old adage “everyone has baggage.” In other words, most people, if not everyone, have emotional issues. When it comes to love relationships, be they marital or dating, emotional issues are quite common. The reader very likely knows of people who tend to have troublesome marriages, or singles who seem to have a pattern of entering into dysfunctional relationships. In our society, the divorce rate is quite high. The fact that such relationship issues exist is not a surprise and is to be expected. The question is… why would that be the case? The answer has to do with the role of the unconscious mind.

The unconscious mind has one job, which is to protect you. If there is a problem, it must continually attempt to fix the problem. It is believed by this author that the unconscious mind is a physical entity within the body in terms of cellular memory that is designed to protect us from an evolutionary “survival of the species” perspective. Accordingly, it has no choice but to bring that problem into our life to give us an opportunity to work on it. If we ignore what is going on in terms of the problem, even if we terminate that problem, the problem will return. Applying this process to marriages and other relationships, if we get a divorce but do not resolve the underlying problem, there is a strong likelihood that when we marry again, we will bring that unresolved problem back into our life. The same process occurs in terms of selecting a boyfriend or girlfriend.

If we look at the process from an historical perspective, it is very typical that the various problems we have to deal with on a daily basis have their genesis from the past, most often dating back to childhood, in the context of daily family life. In some cases, the genesis may stem from academic or social relationships with peers during elementary, middle, or high school. Regardless, if the individual ignores such a history, the identified problems will continue repeatedly into the future. In other words, those who ignore history are condemned to repeat it. This is not just a “cute” concept, but rather a physiological certainty.
Weston PsychCare has male and female psychologists and other therapists experienced in resolving relationship issues. If you are interested in changing your future by changing your past, feel free to contact us at: 954-385-4696.
