Marriage + Couples Therapy

Marriage therapy or couples therapy is designed to help you work through relationship or communication problems and create emotional closeness.  Mental health issues often don’t just start with the individuals, they can impact our families, partners and loved ones! Couples sessions are unique because the couple is the "client', which means your therapist cares most about what works for everyone as a whole, compared to one specific person. We help couples understand the emotional needs of each partner, meet each other’s need, and learn tools to negotiate differences, problem solve and work through conflict in a healthier way to gain and maintain a deeper level of intimacy and closeness.  Having an unbiased third person provide you with skills and tools so the couple or family can communicate more effectively makes a huge difference in everyone's quality of life. This service is available whether a family member is an individual client or not. 

Pre-marriage or premarital counseling can help dating or engaged partners understand their differences and resolve differences before marriage so they can have the tools to create a happy and healthy marriage from the start.
