Couples Counseling Indianapolis - The Gottman Method Couples Therapy & Imago Relationship Therapy
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, Police Officer and Firefighter couples. For military couples, I understand both sides of the challenges. I am married to a combat Veteran and I am a Veteran who was deployed during our relationship.
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/newlyweds, together many years and just discovered an affair or want to stop fighting dirty.
I do not offer discernment counseling (counseling directed at deciding to divorce/separate or not). This doesn't mean that you won't possibly lead to that decision during counseling but I do I lean towards attempting to work through skills first.
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
Relationships can fail due to loss of connection. Each couple comes to therapy wanting to heal old wounds, feel alive in the relationship, communicate better and be in love again.
To start, you will complete several clinical questionnaires, created by the Gottman Institute, to help us see where your relationship is struggling and what skills are needed. The assessment process will occur over 3 sessions. First session as a couple, second each of you individually and third to discuss findings and recommendations.
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.
