You're here because you're desperate to feel connected to your significant other again. You've been fighting, angry and feeling like roommates for too long. You can feel the resentment between the two of you. Maybe someone was unfaithful and you're both trying to make sense of it. It's hard to remember that last time you both felt in love.You want to feel like you did everything to save this, so you've decided to try couples counseling.
I work with Military and First Responder couples. For military couples, I understand both sides of the challenges. I am married to a Veteran and I was deployed, experiencing the separation side of military relationships.
Couples come to me at a variety of places in their relationship. You could be newly dating wanting to learn how to relate better, preparing for marriage, together many years and just discovered an affair or want to stop fighting dirty. I am a pro-marriage therapist and do not help couples discern separation/divorce.
Marriage isn't, "I promise to love you until I stop loving you." It's, "I promise to make a conscious decision to continue to love you, even when it's hard, because I'm aware no one is perfect but you are worth it." -Brandalin
I believe the reason relationships fail is due to loss of connection. Each couple comes to therapy wanting to heal old wounds, feel alive in the relationship and be in love again.
At my office, I use Imago Relationship Therapy and I will coach you both on how to reconnect, rekindle and heal your relationship.
The common myth is that insurance will not cover couples therapy, some will. Please check with your insurer to verify your coverage. I only take on couples as my scheduling and case load permits.
