Couples often seek couples counseling or marriage counseling when the relationship is at a standstill, or if they are unsure whether the relationship is worth salvaging. Stressors may include resentment, infidelity, betrayal, intimacy issues, lack of trust, and miscommunication.
When these problems go unresolved, they drive a wedge in the relationship. Feelings of helplessness, guilt, shame, or inadequacy may grow. Communicating effectively on both parts can alleviate emotional anxiety from subjects of all kind. Sex therapy may be especially helpful for couples who are having trouble communicating their desires, disclosing past traumas, or navigating changing sexual identities.
My integrative treatment approach to working with couples includes:
• Gottman Method
• Narrative Therapy
• Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)
• Positive Psychology
• Analyzing Your Communication
• Getting to the root of the problem
• Enhancing Intimacy
• Individual Counseling
• Couple Retreat
When addiction, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, depression or other issues that stem from childhood trauma threaten the relationship, seek guidance from a professional counselor immediately. It's for your safety and well-being as well as your partner. Please explore my site to get a feel for who I am and how I prefer to work. If you think we'd make a great team, please reach out today.
