About Couples / Marriage Counseling

The willingness to feel vulnerability and to be open about your feelings is essential to real intimacy. 

Communication is a fundamental skill for building connection and contact. What we say and how we say it has a powerful effect on bringing us closer together or farther apart. 

Partners seek couples counseling to address a variety of issues including, but not limited to:

  • Communication and conflict resolution

  • Sexual and intimacy issues

  • Infidelity

  • Fighting and anger

  • Identity and role conflict

  • Dependence vs. independence

  • Ethics and values

  • Jealousy

  • Parenting

  • Money and finances

  • Work/life balance

How it Works

Working together as a team, you and your counselor will:

  • Identify negative patterns that are hindering the quality of your relationship and friendship.

  • Work through problems without blame and power struggles.

  • Strengthen the quality of your partnership by learning healthy ways to communicate and relate to each other.

  • Explore and work through daily stressors that interfere with romance and connection.
