Do you feel like you’re not being heard by your partner? Or not appreciated?
Is there an issue surrounding a lack of faithfulness, money, being a parent, the in-laws, or work?
Or maybe you’d both just love to connect on a deeper level?
What if you could have the relationship you’ve always craved?
If any of these sound like your relationship...
- You and your spouse don’t communicate honestly or with respect
- You, or your partner, have had a betrayal of trust
- You live like roommates rather than lovers
- You feel isolated and alone
- You are together only because of your children
- You’d love a wonderful life together
- You both genuinely want to improve your relationship
...Then couples counseling could be for you.
Whether aimed at addressing small issues or dealing with potentially relationship-breaking challenges, therapy can help you each feel valued, heard, and connected.
In the non-judgmental, supportive environment I provide, you and your partner’s individual wants and needs are combined with evidence-based techniques and therapies to build confidence, openness. and respect. We’ll work together to improve your relationship with each other for the long-haul.
By encouraging honest, empathetic communication and using strategies and techniques that aid hearing, healing, and clarity, couples counseling becomes an empowering process for both you and your partner.
Here is how the first four sessions work: For the first session, I would see you both together to get a history of your relationship and your thoughts about what led to the current issues. After this session, I will send you each an assessment packet for you to complete through the Gottman Institute (the cost of the assessments is $29, but this fee is waived if you schedule your first session for 90 minutes-this gives us enough time to cover everything).
I will then see each of you for an individual session to get a further understanding of each of your perspectives. The individual sessions allow you to speak freely without your partner present.
We will then come back together for a couple's session where I will give you the results of the Gottman Relationship Check-up, and inform you of the strengths and challenges in your relationship. We will then discuss my recommendations and treatment plan for the both of you and incorporate any other suggestions you may have...this is a collaborative effort.
When both partners are provided with the right tools, appropriate approaches, and healthy insights, relationship frustrations often ease or disappear. Problems become manageable, validation & openness increases, and mature communication paves the way for a calmer, happier relationship and the healthiest way forward together.
