Couples and Marriage Counseling
For couples at any stage of their relationship:
You’re at the very beginning of a relationship, and you want to set the foundation for long-term success.
You’re in crisis, and you need some help getting through.
You’re in a long-term relationship which has lost its spark.
In addition to romantic relationships, “couples” counseling can also be helpful for parents and adult children, siblings, even co-workers and friends—any relationship that needs help with clearer communication, better understanding of one anther, or help resolving where the relationship is getting stuck.
Individual Counseling and Psychotherapy
For adults 18 years and older.
We will meet as needed, typically once weekly, in my private office setting for 50–55 minutes*. Together we will identify and resolve where you’re getting stuck, and in this process we will reveal a clearer, more desirable path for you moving forward.
Intensives are a customized experience, and are 1–4 days long, allowing for more in-depth work than is possible in a regular therapy session. These Intensives get to the root of patterns and solve problems quickly, which can be vital during crisis, or necessary when traditional weekly sessions are not enough. Issues around addiction, codependency, family of origin issues, childhood trauma, mental illness, depression, anxiety, PTSD, stress and their effects on relationships are explored in depth.
You will spend 1–4 days doing personal work that is custom designed to meet your personal needs and interests. We will thoroughly explore your life, what you’ve been through, and how you got here. Through this process you will connect to yourself in a profoundly deep and meaningful way, the result of which will be an intuitive sense of how to best care for yourself and your relationships moving forward. Your schedule may include holistic interventions where indicated for health and wellness and may include bodywork, yoga, massage, aromatherapy, psychodrama, EMDR, and equine-assisted activities.
You will spend 2-4 days working on your relationship. After we’ve created an emotionally safe working environment, we’ll delve deeply into your relationship dynamics. We’ll work together toward healing any old wounds that just won’t go away and are keeping your relationship from thriving. You’ll learn tools for resolving conflicts in a healthy way, you’ll learn and practice more effective ways to meet one another’s needs, and you’ll participate in meaningful and connecting activities that will have long-lasting, positive effects on your relationship moving forward.
