Deciding to undergo couples counseling is daunting for many. I as your experienced therapist will help each of you achieve a better understanding of your relationship in all its facets. Whether the problem is one of communication, intimacy, or rooted in very serious issues surrounding substance use or betrayal, I, knowledgeable and caring, will facilitate the strengthening of your relationship and encourage opening the pathways to a more complete conception of yourself and your partner. Each of you will feel freer to express yourself in a safe space with my skill and guidance.
Factors of everyday life can put significant strain on a relationship. Severe stressors may include resentment, infidelity, intimacy issues, lack of trust, and miscommunication. If problems go unresolved or when a partner is suffering from mental illness or health complications, one can feel helpless or have feelings of guilt or shame. Communicating effectively can alleviate emotional anxiety when handling all kinds of complex issues in a relationship.
Spouses and significant others often seek couples or marriage counseling when the relationship is at a standstill, or if they are unsure whether the relationship is worth salvaging. Therapy can also benefit families with children, who are doubtless affected by relationship issues such as divorce, and need help confronting the sources of conflict.
Treatment techniques may include the following:
• Gottman Method
• Narrative Therapy
• Emotionally-Focused Therapy
• Positive Psychology
• Imago Relationship Therapy
• Analyzing Your Communication
• Getting to the Root of the Problem
• Enhancing Intimacy
• Individual Counseling
• Couples Retreat
When a relationship is deteriorating because of addiction, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, and/or severe depression, seek guidance from a therapist immediately for your safety, your partner’s, and that of others.
