Couples Counseling

The average amount of time that a couple experiences problems before addressing them is 6-7 years! That is rumored to be where the “seven-year itch” phrase came from. By the time most couples seek help they are desperate to seek answers, find hope, and reconnect.

I believe that we are social beings. If you ask people what they value most in life, most people will list, without hesitation, friends, family, children, and/or partner. If we value our relationships so much and they play such an integral part of our daily functioning, why are we never taught relationship skills? Much of what we learn about communication and conflict resolution comes from what we observe our parents (or other significant adults) doing...but they probably weren’t taught effective relationship skills either! This is why my work with couples and families is so important to me. Not only do I enjoy teaching a couple or family new skills to help them connect, communicate and save their relationship(s), I, myself, have to use these skills everyday in my own relationships. I value relationships, both yours and mine; therefore much of my education and experience has focused on work with couples.

The following issues can be addressed in a couple’s counseling session:
  • Communication
  • Conflict Resolution
  • Expectations
  • Money
  • Sex
  • Parenting
  • Role Relationships
  • Re-connection
  • Healing from infidelity
  • Spirituality
  • Family-of-origin and/or extended family
  • And more...
ALL couples welcomed.
