Dr. Bryce Kaye is unlike any doctor you’ll ever meet. He heals the “UN-healable”. I’m starting my review this way because he has helped ME shape my life into a life WORTH living. After 23 doctors and 9 therapists over the past 13 years, I am proud to say that in 7 months Dr. Kaye gave me the tools and strength to be a trauma graduate. No more anxiety, constant depression and NO MORE therapists!! I am now free of the torture of rape and abuse. He’s the jackpot of therapists. He’s a life changer.

Dr. Kaye did a great job making me feel comfortable on my first visit. He was able to breakdown my issues and how to go about correcting them. I love that he was very direct and honest and told me like it is. He educated me on things I did not know about being in a relationship, and gave me a different outlook, and approach to being in a relationship. I wanted the best and I got the best!!!!! If you want the best Dr. Kaye all day!!!

After close to 20 years of being with my husband and less than a few weeks away from signing divorce papers, we agreed to try therapy one last time. I did not expect it to save our marriage, let alone transform it. We each learned things about ourselves and each other that have made a huge difference. We approach and handle our issues using the techniques we learned from Dr. Kaye which has resulted in open and honest (all be it sometimes uncomfortable) conversations that result in solutions instead of arguments. Needless to say, we did not get divorced and we both agree we are closer now than we ever have been. We are very grateful for Dr. Kaye and his services.

My fiance and I had booked a marriage retreat (love odyssey) with Dr./Captain Bryce Kaye and his wife Helen to work through some major relationship issues that we thought only a retreat could fix. Having never done so, we were somewhat apprehensive about what the experience would be like. We were intrigued by the prospect of doing the counseling on a boat versus the standard “in-the-office counseling” so many other retreats were offering. All the while, we both felt that sharing our most intimate issues with a counselor we had never met would be a daunting task, especially in such a confined environment. Nothing could have been further from the truth. Bryce was amazing in analyzing and identifying our problems in no time while being extremely tactful and likable. The presence of his wife made the atmosphere very relaxed and an air of humor was added to all counseling sessions. This made it very easy for us to share our most intimate and at times embarrassing secrets. The overall experience itself was well beyond what we could have imagined. As we were working through our problems, the beautiful North Carolina backdrop made for a romantic getaway that in addition to all the valuable advice given by Bryce and Helen made for a memorable experience we will cherish for years to come. I can confidently say that our relationship has never been better. Bryce and Helen have truly brought our relationship to a level few people will experience. In addition to Bryce’s book, the Marriage First Aid Kit, the retreat is something every couple would greatly benefit from, whether they are in crisis or not.1

Hghly recommend Dr. Kaye and Love Odyssey Tours. Practical, proactive, and professional, we left with the tools we needed to help reinvigorate our marriage of 19 years and helped us better understand each other. After returning and beginning our follow-up work, my wife and I both agree that we could not have made a better investment in ourselves and our family. A heartfelt thank you, Dr. and Mrs. Kaye.

Dr. Kaye is an extremely effective and powerful therapist. He is truly a therapist, because what he does is actually therapeutic — he is intent and intense on his goal of treating and healing, which can be a stark and shocking contrast to other therapists. When you go into a session with Dr. Kaye, prepare to be genuinely challenged, to be engaged actively, and to be challenged to grow and heal.

I have had many therapists over the years, and they were all fine, but I needed a therapist that was more than fine. I needed someone smarter than me, someone that could see through my bs, and that could offer practical solutions for moving forward. I had grown weary of other therapists simply wanting to rehash the past, but never quite helping me to get on with life in a healthy way. Before Bryce, I always seemed to be left with the feeling of, “well I know how I got here, but what do I do about it?”. In a relatively short amount of time of working with Bryce, I was able to effectively manage issues that had plagued me my entire life. His methods have proven to be invaluable for becoming a healthy, autonomous adult.
I recommend Bryce to anyone willing to put in the work it requires to strengthen your inner core. He is not for lazy people that just want a magic pill to fix it all.

I am a former couple’s counselor, myself, and I feel incredibly blessed and grateful to have found Bryce Kaye. Without him, I doubt my relationship with my boyfriend would have lasted. But now, because of his intervention, we are getting along better than ever, we trust each other again, and the bedrock of our friendship has been restored.

Bryce’s method of helping couples goes far beyond what almost all other therapists and counselors offer: in addition to helping couples improve their communication, he teaches us how to get along with one another and establish a balanced relationship based on just the right blend of satisfying our personal needs, the needs of our partner, and the needs of the relationship itself. He knows just when to share (unbelievably valuable) information (i.e., educate us) and when to pull back and let us talk to each other during the sessions.

He introduces concepts that I’ve never heard of before, concepts that truly made all the difference to my boyfriend and me. He’s knowledgeable, has decades of experience, and his understanding of psychophysiology informs the advice he gives–and it works!

He is a kind and fair person; easy to talk to; non-judgmental, always considerate of both parties.

If you have read negative comments about Bryce, I recommend that you ignore them, because I assure you that he is the best chance that you have to saving your relationship – here in the Triangle area, and probably in the entire southern region. I consider myself very lucky that we live so close to his office – I’d drive hours to get help like this; help that I have been unable to find elsewhere.

We had to pay full price for Bryce, because our insurance doesn’t cover couple’s counseling. But he is worth every penny (and more). After all, my relationship with my significant other is among the most important investments in my life.

If you do go see Bryce, I recommend that you approach the experience as if you were taking a course in school; because Bryce takes an active approach: he teaches, he educates. I had my own ideas of how to “fix” my broken relationship, but I set them aside, listened to what he had to say, and I tried the things that he suggested. So did my boyfriend. And they worked. His book “The Marriage First Aid Kit” was a very helpful adjunct to our therapy, and reading it shortened the amount of visits we needed.

It so happened that we were able to cut through a boatload of confusion, fear, anger and pain in only 4 sessions. You might require more or fewer; the important thing is, Bryce is not after your money. He lets you lead the way with whatever your agendas are, and when you think you are finished, he doesn’t recommend that you keep seeing him, although he certainly leaves the door open to go see him again, if needed.

There are few health care providers that have impressed me as much as Bryce Kaye. If you go see him, you are making a wise choice; I can’t imagine any couple with any problem that he can’t help you solve. He cares, he wants to help, and he does.

contacted Dr. Kaye to help my fiance and me navigate some tough roads with respect to family transition, step-children, and relationship development. We read his book and attended approximately 6-8 sessions. Dr. Kaye gave my fiance and I the tools to significantly improve our relationship along with our relationships with our children.

I later met with Dr. Kaye in a 1:1 setting for another 10-12 sessions. I have to say that Dr. Kaye has helped more than words can express. I happen to have a degree in Psychology, and therefore I had a pretty good idea of what to expect as it pertains to talk therapy. I was wrong. We did not dwell on specific issues, but rather we worked intensely on developing the tools, identifying important qualities, and internal mental structures to allow me to constructively deal with any situation. Dr. Kaye did not help me fix a specific problem, or help me come to terms with something specific from my past, but rather he helped me build a framework to reconcile any issues I identified (or may identify in the future) from the past. Moreover, the tools, or strategies, have helped me develop a much more confident, open, caring, understanding, empathetic, compassionate, and overall happier ‘me.’ I can not speak highly enough of Dr. Kaye and his methodology.

I have struggled with addiction for many years. During my difficult journey I attempted to quit multiple times. I saw a handful of therapists and unfortunately for me I was able to deceive them and act as if I was getting better. Then I met Dr. Kaye. He saw right through my deception and provided me very direct feedback and held me accountable for my own recovery. So if you’re serious about getting well there is no one better to help you than Dr. Bryce Kaye. I owe my life to him.

My wife and I had some relationship questions due to a number of recent stress inducing changes (job induced separation, etc).

We love each other very much, and value our marriage, and thought it would make sense to find an expert, though I confess I put going to a “marriage” counselor, somewhere between dental surgery and the opera. But Dr Bryce Kaye was excellent — we came out of there armed with a number of helpful items, and I have no doubt he’s a subject matter expert.

I initially thought Dr. Kaye was a divine intervention, and I still do!

Your mechanic, hairdresser/barber, doctor and psychotherapist are all people that when you find a good one, you hold onto them.

My wife and I were separated and moving apart, and it all seemed so senseless,
sort of like being in another country and not knowing the language, but the miscommunication was with the most important person in my life. We had tried another counseling service in the area prior to our separation that I believe had good intentions, offering us help and purporting “Solutions,” but only proved to smear around the hurt and anguish with buzz phrases and happy thoughts. It was like putting a clean bandage on a festering wound, and we both knew it, hence the subsequent separation, but we still had no tools to create healing or even understand what was causing the wound.
I needed support to deal with our impending divorce and purely by accident, or so I thought, found Dr. Kaye for individual counseling. I immediately found him to be very different and refreshing from previous counselors; very knowledgeable, personable and extremely astute. Dr. Kaye eventually accepted us for couples counseling sessions and “yada, yada yada” we are now not just happy, but more happily married than we had ever understood. It’s too much to express, but it is not an intuitive process building a relationship, the language has to be taught, and there are few that have the skill and the tools to allow you to understand and help yourself. Dr. Kaye is one of those few, and, though I may not want him creating my hairstyle, working on my car or performing surgery on me, he’s a good one and has made all the difference in my life,… in our lives!

P.S. We are expecting our first born in January.

I first met Bryce by attending a lecture he gave. His model of attending to the unconscious directly, where many problems lurk and originate, immediately struck me as superior to mere “talk” therapy that tries to get at deep-seated issues from a superficial layer. Indeed, in working with Bryce, I found it so (as did many of the friends I sent to him).

Sometimes Bryce will just talk with you, which can be beneficial, but he’s far more than just a talk-therapist should the need for a different approach arise — so much so, that I think of him less as a therapist and more as a wizard of the mind.

Bryce Kaye and Cary Counseling Center is the best in the Triangle area. Dr. Kaye provides the right mix of compassion, direction and accountability for being the best you possible. Forget just talking about your life, Bryce is the one to see if you want to change it.

For more than 30 years I was treated by psychiatrists, psychologists, and social workers for “severe depression.” Though progress was made, I endured two psychiatric hospitalizations and received a variety of medications including some that were very harmful to me. Throughout all that my symptoms persisted and family life and work remained difficult.

My last MSW suspected EMDR therapy would help me and she referred me to Dr. Kaye. Dr. Kaye was the first therapist to accurately diagnose my condition. Depression was an evident symptom that was masking my real illness, dissociated identity disorder.

Over several years of EMDR and talk therapy with Dr. Kaye my symptoms are dramatically reduced and I am happier than I have been since I was a child. I can heartily recommend Dr. Kaye without any reservations.

Cary Counseling Center is an excellent choice for any couple in need of marriage counseling. Dr. Kaye helped us to strengthen our marriage as well as improve other aspects of our lives, both as a couple and individuals. As a result, we are much happier now and feel a sense of impowerment over our marriage and lives. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Cary Counseling Center to friends, family or strangers alike. Thank you Dr. Kaye!

Cary Counseling Center has helped us stay married for 24 years. When things got rough and relationships were tough Dr. Kaye has helped us reconnect and work to make things better and moving forward! I have and still recommend counseling with Dr. Kaye when friends are struggling to stay married. Counseling is smarter than tearing apart families and lives through divorce!
