Our Results

Couple Points At GraphYou no longer have to wonder if therapy works!

Research shows that in general, therapy is four times more effective than no treatment at all. So clearly, getting help is better than letting things go and hoping it will change. At Together Couples Counseling, we take the health of your relationships very seriously. That’s why we constantly study our clients’ results using scientifically-developed methods, making sure we’re helping our clients in the most ethical, effective way possible.

Outcome Data

Using a reliable and valid measure called Feedback-Informed Treatment, analyzing the results for 40 of Risa Ganel's clients over a 9-month period, our statistics prove that working with Risa is 125% more effective than working with the average therapist[1], and nine times better than no therapy at all. Granted, therapy is not 100% effective, all of the time for everyone. We certainly can't promise what your results will be, but we are committed to providing you with the best possible, evidence-based service. [1] "Average therapist" based on ORS database of 229 therapists and 15,398 clients.
