By the time you are seeking marriage counseling, you have likely tried your best at making your relationship work. You find yourselves getting stuck in the same patterns. It's painful and exhausting. You may even be on the brink of divorce.
Learning "communication skills" will not help a highly distressed couple. Underlying patterns of thinking and beliefs, unhealed trauma or unrecognized high-functioning autism can undermine efforts at "communication."
Couples counseling is not appropriate for destructive marriages. In most cases, it will do more harm than good. Find out more here.
In some cases, individual counseling with a separate therapist may need to either precede or happen in conjunction with couples counseling for real change to occur. It is not recommended for your couples counselor to also be your individual counselor.
In our times together, we will walk through where you as a couple are getting stuck. You can get unstuck and build a beautiful, albeit imperfect, life together.
I will work with you to help you find personal growth and relational healing.
