Your primary relationship is the most important one in your life, and even the happiest of couples will face challenges and obstacles along the way. We work with couples to help them reconnect, improve their communication and rebuild trust. Our clients include couples of all kinds, married or partnered, straight and gay couples, new and newly engaged couples, those in long-term relationships, and couples in crisis. We help couples break down barriers, so that each partner can see the other’s side of an issue.

We also specialize in guiding couples through such difficulties as long-standing areas of conflict, infidelity, divorce, and comorbidities such as mental illnesses or addictions that may be affecting the partnership. This is the work that helps each person in a relationship become more self-aware and conscious of what kind of issues that they bring to the relationship. This work reflects the challenges that many couples face in the first several years or more of their relationship. A deeper and more transformative relationship can follow, but only when couples learn how to communicate well, manage conflicts effectively, and take responsibility for themselves and their part in the relationship. Ultimately, couples are able to develop a more secure and intimate attachment to one another.

  • Pre-Marital Counseling
