Couples Counseling

Pair of Canada geese to represent couples counseling

For one human being to love another: that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation.
—Rainer Maria Rilke

What’s preventing you and your partner from connecting more deeply and honestly with each other?

Relationship counseling can help if you are:

  • Experiencing frequent conflict and communication problems
  • Walking on eggshells around your partner
  • Feeling unseen, unheard, or misunderstood
  • Coping with betrayal or a lack of intimacy
  • Feeling unloved or unfulfilled in your relationship but unsure what to do
  • Contemplating separation or divorce

You can begin to:

  • Resolve conflicts without them escalating into an argument
  • Practice talking truthfully with each other without fear of retaliation
  • Ask for what you need and want in a way your partner can hear
  • Understand each other’s love language and demonstrate love in the way your partner needs
  • Enhance the way you communicate and express intimacy
  • Listen with the intent to hear and understand your partner
  • Use betrayal as an opportunity to heal what is not working in your relationship
  • Release resentments and bitterness
  • Develop the skills needed to stay together or the strength to leave

An authentic relationship – a balance of love and respect – is an achievable alternative to either codependence or defensive separateness. Together and individually, you can come to a clearer, more empathic level of understanding and learn more fulfilling ways to interact. Guided by gentle directness in a safe environment, you can begin to dissolve old barriers and develop a relationship that is more truthful and intimate.

Are You Ready to Transform Your Relationship with Yourself … and Others?

Good relationships with yourself and others are at the heart of a well-balanced, joyful, healthy, and productive life. The difficulties that arise in creating healthy relationships – although painful – can be powerful opportunities for deep personal and spiritual growth.

Relationships create valuable feedback through which you can gain a deeper understanding of your history, behavior patterns, deep-seated beliefs, talents, and passions. From this, you can make new and positive changes in all aspects of your life.

We were at a crisis point when we came to see Jennifer. We both felt that every session was impactful. We now have a deep understanding and appreciation of each other and our relationship together.
