Are You Unhappy in Your Relationship?
Effective Marriage and Couples Therapy Can Help You Reconnect
Do you wonder if couples therapy can help you repair your marriage or relationship? We are here to help couples with communication, family problems, infidelity, as well as others deciding to stay or separate.
When Should You Seek Marriage or Couples Therapy?
When you feel disconnected and alone. You seem to be stuck in a place of feeling very unhappy, angry, and/or lonely. You fear the relationship won’t last if something doesn’t change. You know you can’t keep going on this way.
If you are wiped out and emotionally drained you are starting to feel hopeless about resolving your problems. Maybe even depressed and anxious about your situation. Also, you might argue a lot or end up not even talking at all. Or possibly one of you pushes (nags and complains) to talk and the other puts up a wall. You can’t seem to resolve anything and things are getting worse.
When you fight about sex and intimacy. Maybe you feel more like roommates than lovers. If you’re angry at your spouse or partner you may not want to have sex. If you feel hurt or rejected you may not even try anymore. This can lead to feeling unloved, insecure and not wanted.
If you’re dealing with past or recent infidelity. You just go over and over it in your head. You want details and it drives you crazy. You just can’t believe it.
When you fight about money. You just feel alone and can’t count on your spouse or partner when it comes to financial decisions and spending.
If your problems affect your children. Maybe you fight about parenting issues or your disagreements affect your children.

Help to Repair Your Marriage or Relationship
The reason most couples struggle is what they learned or didn’t learn, for that matter, growing up. Maybe you had role models that didn’t show you how to listen, understand and really be there. As a result, most couples don’t really know how to respond, negotiate and discuss to resolve conflict.
Also, not knowing the skills to communicate in effective ways can cause anger, hurt and disconnection. In addition, this disconnect can cause one or both people to feel alone. It is important to make the relationship safe enough so both of you can be open and honest about your true feelings. Also, getting better at listening and reducing defensiveness will help. Certainly, learning how to cope with your own feelings of anger, hopelessness, rejection and frustration is important.
There is hope if you are both willing to learn how to do a better job with communication learn to repair old and new wounds. Let me help you both work to deepen your connection. I have 25 years of experience helping couples and individuals get to a better place. I provide counseling in a respectful, non-judgmental and safe environment. I am also very experienced with multicultural counseling, mixed race couples therapy, interracial couples, gay marriage counseling and LGBTQ counseling.

Is couples therapy or individual counseling right for me/us? How will I know if it’s time to go to personal and relationship therapy?
Life is definitely a series of challenges. Things don’t always go the way we expected or want for any of us. Sometimes relationships and family circumstances are difficult, sometimes we go through hard times personally. It may take courage to ask for help, but if you’ve tried to improve things on your own and it has not worked, consider contacting a licensed therapist. Counseling can help you find better ways to cope with difficult feelings and experiences. It can also help by assessing mental health issues, such as anxiety and depression, that will benefit from treatment. Taking the step to go to therapy can help you move in the direction of a more satisfying and happier relationship and life.
How do you choose the right therapist to help you with marital therapy, couples counseling or individual psychotherapy ?
Finding a therapist that is right for you is important. When searching, locate an experienced and licensed professional with expertise with the issues you need help with now. Some therapists focus on personal issues and some on relationship issues and others may be the best choice if they have experience with multicultural and LGBT couples and individuals. A good therapist will listen to your concerns and help you feel safe and understood as you explore your issues.
Helping Couples, Families & Individuals
Marriage , Couples Therapy & Relationship Counseling
If you’re a couple or individual who needs help with a personal, family or relationship issue, an experienced therapist can help. In addition, some couples are in an unhappy and disconnected place or need help with a crisis. Also, others want discernment counseling to see if they can save the relationship especially if one person says they want a divorce or feeling hopeless. Regardless, all are searching for help to see if they can improve their relationship, figure out the next step or get help if they have to start over.
Finding out about an affair often leads to a relationship or martial crisis. At first you may feel shock and anger. Also, feelings of betrayal and rejection leading to a huge rupture for couples. To heal from infidelity will take time to process – together – grief, sadness, anger and guilt. Helping you recover will take patience, empathy, understanding and support. We provide a safe place for couples to understand what issues may have caused their relationship to get disconnected and vulnerable to a spouse or partner cheating. Also, knowing how to apologize for your mistakes, ask for forgiveness, and forgive will help you both. Most importantly, we help couples communicate in a way that will help your spouse or partner feel secure and trust again.
