Often, clients express that, just the first step of making the appointment, can create a positive shift in the relationship because the intention to change is communicated.

Couples counseling

Relationships go through different stages. Every stage can create its own challenges and can be an opportunity to strengthen the relationship and learn from each other. People have, sometimes explosive arguments about many topics, for example money, sex, parenting styles, household issues and scheduling confusions to name a few.  People outside the relationship can also be the cause of discord, like when boundaries are blurry with friends, family or in-laws.

Some people seek counseling to heal the wounds of infidelity or other betrayals of trust in a relationship. The goal for couples counseling is to improve communication, trust and mutual understanding to maintain or strengthen the relationship. It can help to discover how to express emotions in a healthy way.  However, some people find out in counseling that they no longer want to be with their spouse or partner. In that case counseling can help work through the emotions of a breakup or divorce and help both partners transition.
