COUPLES COUNSELING

Partnering up is full of big decisions, big emotions, big negotiations and big changes.  We often try our best but feel like we’re blindly trudging through unknown territory.  That’s because every relationship is unique and brings it’s own set of difficulties.  Plus we’re bringing all our expectations and hurts from the past.  It’s a lot to hold without support.

Couples Therapy can be one of the most rewarding experiences.  It’s a process. It helps stop negative patterns and promotes the strengths of your relationship.  It’s also a place where you can connect deeply with your partner while learning about your desires, needs and how to communicate them. 

Getting stuck and suffering in a relationship isn’t necessary.  With guidance, you can overcome problems and find solutions that work for both of you. 

 

COUPLES COUNSELING CAN TEACH YOU TO... 

 •  Communicate more effectively & create positive patterns

 •   Work through disagreements or differences

 •   Be assertive and get your needs met

 •   Create safety together to be authentic

 •   Let go of the past, forgive and grow into something new

 •   Relate in healthier ways and develop more love

RELATIONSHIP COACHING

When our social relationships are hurting, we feel more alone, down and life is stressful.  It's hard to trust new people because experiences from the past have compounded and we just don't know if it's worth it.  Relationships can seem like work and we wonder if we'll ever have peace with that family member, friend, co-worker or partner.  

NEW RESEARCH SHOWS THAT HAPPINESS AND WELLBEING ARE TIED TO THE SUCCESS OF OUR SOCIAL RELATIONSHIPS. 

Relationship Coaching differs from psychotherapy because it's more action oriented.  Together, we'll write out specific and measurable goals and work weekly to get you where you want to be. I am your personal cheerleader, encouraging you and guiding you.  Lets get clear about what you want and go get it. 

 

RELATIONSHIP COACHING SUPPORTS YOU IN DIFFERENT WAYS:

Singles use romance coaching and master dating skills.  You’ll develop a roadmap for lots of different dating scenarios, including online dating, meeting people at clubs and bars, approaching someone to get a date, and many more.

Partnered individuals use coaching for tools to deepen their relationship or, if need be, strategies for getting out of their relationship.  You’ll also get perspective and advice for navigating the conflicts that arise during specific stages of a relationship.

Groups provide an opportunity to connect with and learn from other members and receive fun and fascinating information that will change the dating game into an adventure once again. Click below to see current groups offered:  Coaching Groups

INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING

Life is overwhelming.  It’s complicated, with new obstacles arising every day.   We’re responsible for so much – too much.  It’s a lot to hold.  Therapy is a place where you are not alone.  You can unload, unburden yourself and begin feeling better. 

There are times when we just need someone to listen and understand. Other times we long for guidance.  We work collaboratively with clients, providing them an opportunity to wake up and generate change.  

Deep down, we are all whole and healthy – therapy helps us see what’s obscuring our true nature.  Through becoming aware and authentic, healing occurs, and our brilliance comes forth.  Are you ready to finally give yourself this gift?

Do You take insurance?

Our therapists do not work on any insurance panels, but they can provide therapy invoices that you can submit for out of network reimbursement. We would recommend calling the member services department and asking them how much they cover for out of network providers.  Our therapists typically create a therapy invoice, or "Superbill" at the end of the month for clients to email or mail in.
