Relationship  Counseling

You can't go back and change the beginning but you can start where you are and change the ending.

C.S. Lewis

Are you and your partner stuck in the same argument loop every night? Have you let years of resentments build up? Does your partner become defensive anytime you try to communicate with them? Do you desire more intimacy between you and your partner? Or, maybe you're here because you and your partner are trying to learn how to not let any of those things happen?

With just a little support, your relationship can be improved, changed, and bettered, no matter how big or small your obstacles are. In couples therapy, you’ll learn how to communicate your feelings and needs, how to really hear what your partner's feelings and needs are without feeling attacked or becoming defensive, and get what you want out of your relationship.

Some issues that bring couples to therapy are:

  • Balance (Work/Life/Family)

  • Blended Families

  • Chronic Illness

  • Communication Difficulties

  • Divorce

  • Extended Family

  • Emotional Intimacy

  • Mental Illness

  • Pre-Marital/Readiness

  • Pornography

  • Resentments

  • Sex

  • Trauma and PTSD

  • Trust

If any of the above relate to you and your significant other, contact me today for a free 10-minute consultation. I would love to tell you about how I can help you learn to communicate and really hear each other, heal past hurts, and see your partner for the loving best-friend you married.
