Marriage Counseling/Couples Counseling/Relationship Counseling

Relationships are the hardest thing we do. And almost every relationship issue revolves around communication. Communicating well with your partner is not a talent, its a skill that can be learned and improved. 

We often bring unwritten rules about things like trust, intimacy, conflict, boundaries, and sex into our relationships and expect that our partner is playing by the same rule book. That is almost never the case. We have to bring these unwritten ways of relating out into the open, especially when things are not going as we hoped.

Common relationship counseling issues incude:  

  • Work-Life Integration
  • Parenting Stress
  • Managing Household Responsibilities
  • Addiction/Partner Addiction
  • Blended Families
  • Chronic Illness
  • Divorce/Separation
  • Extended Family
  • Infidelity/Cheating
  • Intimacy, Mental Illness
  • Pre-Marital/Readiness
  • Pornography & Sex

Relationship counseling can help partners develop the skills needed to sustain lasting connection. If you and your partner are tired of not getting what you want from your relationship, or you just know it could be so much better, contact me today to set up an Initial Relationship Consultation so that you can start the journey to a more intimate and fulfilling relationship. 

Pre-Engagement & Pre-Marital Counseling

Most people have heard about pre-marital counseling, but the problem is that once you've said "I do", the focus oftentimes shifts to wedding planning not marriage preparation. That's why I am a big proponent of pre-engagement counseling. But regardless if you're engaged or thinking of getting engaged, the research is clear that pre-marital counseling increases the likelihood of long-term relationship success. 

We provide an 8-session package that covers all of the significant areas that all couples need to thoroughly talk through. 

  • Beliefs about marriage
  • Conflict resolution
  • Making time for your relationship
  • Parenting and children
  • Sex
  • Values
  • Religion and spirituality
  • Gender role expectations and household tasks
  • Finances

  • Careers
  • Friends and social support
  • Fun and leisure
