Everyone says, “Marriage is work.” We completely agree with this! But, most people are not taught what work needs to be done to have a successful marriage. To learn your job or trade, you go to school or are trained on the job by an expert. To learn a sport, you have a coach that teaches you, provides drills, and makes you practice. You see where this is going here, right?
As couples therapists, we are here to help you learn skills that will make your marriage stronger. We specialize in working with couples at every stage in their relationship, from those who just want a relationship check-up to those who are on the brink of divorce. We are here to help you learn to communicate, resolve conflict and feel and show love again.
In particular, we specialize in working with couples who have experienced infidelity. We are experts in helping each partner decide the direction they want to go with the marriage and assist in the necessary healing to move forward. Infidelity does not mean a marriage is over.
Our areas of specialty for couples
- Communication problems
- Loss of intimacy
- Lack of connection
- Decisions about divorce/discernment counseling
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there.”
