Couples, Marital & Relationship Counseling

Couples, Marital & Relationship Counseling

Married and dating couples may find that many of their ongoing conflicts are rooted in their relationships. Disputes over money, infidelity, sex, parenting, and household responsibilities may all contribute to emotional distress, particularly when couples lack the communication strategies to speak openly and hear each other. Couples counseling allows partners to enter a safe, respectful forum where injured feelings may be examined in an atmosphere of tolerance and understanding.

Our counseling model upholds the idea that couples may overcome obstacles. It strives to sustain healthy relationships, preserve marriages, and enhance the couple’s quality of life. In just a few sessions, or over a period of weeks and months, a licensed therapist works with the couple to identify the source of their dissatisfaction and provide tools to help them listen to each other, negotiate disputes, and nurture common interests. The goal is to help couples achieve more satisfying relationships. Here are a few areas for which we offer counseling:

  • Arguments
  • Control issues
  • Financial disputes
  • Infidelity
  • Sexual dissatisfaction
  • Lack of conversation
  • Parenting roles
  • In-laws
  • Emotional or physical abuse
