It's Time For a Change

Is Couples Counseling Right for Us? 


Quite often couples seek out counseling when their relationship troubles have reached their peak and realize that their relationship can no longer endure the emotional turmoil. It is at this cross roads that couples counseling is beneficial to those interested in improving their relationships. At this time you may find yourself asking a few of these questions: 

  • Will our relationship last? 
  • Where do we go from here? 
  • How can I trust them after this?
  • Should we get a divorce? 
  • Will I ever love them the same again? 

 I have experience with a diverse range of couples from various racial, ethnic, spiritual and sexual orientation backgrounds. Couples can be married or dating. In working with couples, I determine what approach will be best for their situation. Techniques I utilize include Gottman Method Couples Counseling, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Solution Focused and Cognitive Behavior Therapy.  With these techniques, I equip couples with the skills to address:

  • Problem Solving
  • Financial disagreements
  • Infidelity
  • Trust Concerns
  • Intimacy
  • Fighting Fair
  • Premarital Concerns
  • And Overall Effective Communication

How can I give my partner feedback without making them upset? 

Validation is the Key! Validation is essentially the recognition and acknowledgement of your partners feelings. Recognize that when your partner is seeking your approval or opinion on something, that this puts them in a vulnerable situation. Take the time to acknowledge this before giving your feedback.. Also, feedback is best served without character attacks.
