Marriage and Couples Counseling

Helping couples reconnect and deepen their
relationships since 1997.
- Is your relationship in trouble?
- Are you experiencing either increasing conflict, or more
distance and isolation?
- Do you long for the connection and love you used to feel in
- Are you afraid you are headed for a break-up or divorce?
No matter what level of distress you are feeling, couples counseling
or marriage counseling can help you move forward.
I offer emotional support for both of you, skills to help you
communicate more effectively, help in untangling the patterns that
you are struggling with, and insight and healing for deeper issues.
I understand ... it can be difficult to reach out for help. Perhaps
you feel embarrassed or anxious about discussing problems in your
relationship. Or you may be angry and can hardly talk to each other.
Or perhaps you feel isolated or hopeless.
But you will feel better if you explore couples or marriage
counseling now, gain some skills, and begin to change the painful
patterns you are experiencing, rather than delay, hoping that
something will somehow change in your relationship.
Research by John Gottman, PhD, shows that most couples wait too long
to seek help for their relationship ... about 6 years too long! By
that time, they are carrying a much bigger load of hurt feelings and
unhealthy patterns. Getting help sooner is both the smart and
compassionate choice for both of you.
Please call 303-415-3755 or email
me to schedule an initial consultation. I offer private,
confidential marriage and couples counseling sessions. Or check out
my relationship skills seminars, below.
Note: Phone is currently the
quickest and most reliable way to reach me.
