People seek couples counseling and pre-marriage counseling for many different reasons. It could be wanting to improve communication difficulties, develop life goals, sexual dissatisfaction, considering separation or divorce, or struggling with infidelity. Couples counseling is a collaborative process in which we will work together to determine the underlying problems and begin to find solutions. We will also work to begin to heal the hurt and begin to lay the foundation to build or rebuild a trusting relationship.
I like to approach all couples sessions as focusing on developing a common goal and working towards that. Far too often, the feelings of hurt, fear, anger, frustration, and sadness can take over the entire relationship. Through the counseling process, I try to help my couples find the love and caring that was the basis of the relationship and begin to rebuild what once was present.
