Couples | Marital Counseling

Couples/Marital Counseling


Couples come to couples/marriage counseling because they are struggling with infidelity, communication, anger, physical intimacy, different parenting styles, trust issues, family and in-law problems, step family, money and fertility issues. Through couples/marriage counseling you can make decisions about rebuilding and improving your relationship, or going your separate ways.


My Approach:

Couples counseling works best when two people are strongly committed to working on their issues. In a non-judgmental and safe place, couples can work through negative dynamics and develop more empathy for each other. Communication increases as the couple begins to assert themselves and be vulnerable as they talk about sensitive topics and issues together.


In Our Work Together I Will Guide You To:

  • Find more effective ways to communicate
  • Re-kindle the romance and passion with your partner
  • Identify negative dynamics so you can stop having the same fights over and over
  • Stop blaming each other and take ownership and responsibility

The goal is to help you gain insight and awareness into reactions and behaviors, feel heard, communicate more effectively, create more intimacy and change dynamics in your relationship.


What If My Partner Doesn’t Want To Come To Counseling?

Many relationships have one partner who isn’t interested and doesn’t want to go couples counseling. But counseling can be viable even if both partners don’t attend and participate. As you work on your own issues and reactions this ultimately has a significant impact on the relationship. Bringing your best self into the relationship changes the tone and interaction with your partner and can move the relationship forward.

E-course for Couples

After years of helping clients, I recognize that there are many people who desire healthier relationships but are uncomfortable going to therapy or simply cannot go to a therapist’s office because of travel, scheduling or financial issues. To serve them, I designed a program that can be used remotely at any time.

This user-friendly E-course program, The Ultimate Relationship Resolution Program, transforms relationships through a combination of psycho-education, proactive skills and proven techniques. From the comfort of their home, car or while out exercising, couples use the program to make immediate and beneficial changes in their relationships. Through this self-help program, individuals and couples learn how to effectively navigate the five most common issues that arise in relationships: communication, anger, money, physical and emotional intimacy.
