A few things counseling and therapy can help with:

  • Exploring major decisions in your personal or professional life such as a career change
  • Changing negative or destructive patterns
  • Learning how to be more assertive
  • Becoming more skillful at managing your anger

Couples Therapy

I believe that The Gottman Method approach to couple therapy is advantageous to individuals and couples in all stages of relationships. While most people enter therapy after many years of disappointment and frustration, the interventions and skills that you will learn when working with me are equally beneficial to individuals seeking partners, couples who have just begun dating and those in long term relationships.

Let’s face it- all couples argue!

The problem really isn’t that you and your partner disagree but how you disagree. If you have the same arguments without making the progress you’d hoped for, counseling can help you take a fresh look at how you interact and begin to make changes to transform your relationship the can strengthen your commitment to create a love that will last a lifetime.

Common roadblocks in relationships are:

  • Fighting to win rather than working together for a solution that works for both of you
  • Bottling up feelings to avoid a confrontation
  • Taking personal jabs at each other instead of putting energy into resolving the issue at hand
  • Refusing to take personal responsibility for your role in creating the problem
  • Discounting each other’s feelings and needs

Premarital Counseling

Premarital education classes can help you start your married life on the right foot. Using the Prepare/Enrich Curriculum, you will learn key components of a successful marriage which will enhance your communication and conflict resolution skills. Discover new things about yourself and your partner that you never knew before.

What is PREPARE/ENRICH?
PREPARE/ENRICH is a customized couple assessment completed online that identifies a couple’s strength and growth areas. It is one of the most widely used programs for premarital counseling and premarital education. It is also used for marriage counseling, marriage enrichment, and dating couples considering engagement. Based on a couple’s assessment results, a trained facilitator provides 4-8 feedback sessions in which the facilitator helps the couple discuss and understand their results as they are taught proven relationship skills.

If you’re ready to learn effective ways to resolve conflict and are ready to put in some personal effort, you can improve your relationship. Counseling is a great tool for helping couples break bad habits.
