Marriage and Couples Counseling
Marriage and couples counseling is a special field which demands hopefulness and optimism. When our intimate relationships aren't functioning, we need a huge dose of reality and proven experience to restore our bonds to where they should be.
The bond between lovers is special; Relationships grow over time to include others and this change in our life and priorities can get complicated.

Is Marriage and Couples Counseling for you?
There is an old saying in therapy that when a couple lies down, there are six people in the bed; we bring our past into every relationship; sometimes your past acts against your better interests.
Are you locked in a behavioral pattern with your partner? Is the pattern starting to feel old and resource draining? If you feel trapped or caught in a no win situation, couples counseling is for you.
Marriage and Couples Counseling:
The focus of treatment in couples counseling is on change! We are always in a state of change and when we decide to be active agents of this change we contribute to positive outcomes. In our sessions we:
- learn to listen to each other
- support each others’ goals
- are willing to compromise
- make family and relationship decisions together
- stop keeping score
- reconnect, relax and have fun
All relationships are hard work. The greatest relationships are a reflection of the mutual interests and hard work that drive them. Couples counseling allows us to practice new skills and over time, this work gets easier.
