Relationships are a source of emotional support, security, renewal and life-giving energy. If you are feeling that your relationship has become less than that, or is becoming a drain on your energy and joy, then couples counseling could be beneficial for you and your partner.
According to the research of Drs. John and Julie Gottman, the average couple waits six years after the relationship has become distressed to seek help. Imagine how much joy those six years could hold if you look for help now. If you have considered counseling, chances are that it’s time. Don’t wait for your relationship to deteriorate, or until you are at the end of your rope. Start building a better future together today.
In the counseling process no one can guarantee a particular outcome. However, if you do not try anything new, it is likely that things will not improve in your relationship. We will utilize the most current evidence-based research and training available to help you reconnect with your partner and find joy, love, fun and fulfillment together again.
In most cases, we will begin with an initial assessment, which consists of meeting with both partners together, then each partner individually. After the individual meetings, both partners will come back to review the assessment findings and create a collaborative treatment plan. Normally, subsequent sessions will be conducted with both partners, unless special circumstances indicate additional individual sessions.
