Couples Therapy and Marriage Counseling

Problems with a spouse or significant other can undermine the way you feel about everything in your life–work, family, and yourself.  Counseling  with an experienced therapist can be a huge help.

Couples therapy is an ideal place to work at the ongoing problems in your relationship–the fights, the miscommunication, the stress.   Coming into therapy together can help you better understand each other and the part you each play in your relationship. It can help you learn to fight fairly, help restore and increase intimacy, and lead to a deeper, more satisfying connection between you.

Not all relationships are well-suited to couples therapy.  Call to discuss your situation and get started.
