It is difficult to go through life alone. We all need and want to know that a person we love 'has our back' and also knows and understands us. Two people can know a loyalty found in no other type of relationship. At the heart of all relationships, each person needs to know that they matter. In a relationship there is a sense of belonging that comes from working toward goals shared with another.
Understanding ourselves and what gets evoked in a relationship can sometimes be a mystery. In couples therapy we will explore in a safe, supportive and respectful environment your power of relating and beliefs about yourself and each other. I will help you increase connectedness, resolve conflict, take personal responsibility, deepen intimacy and work through stages of life challenges. I will assist you in finding the language and motivation to resolve financial and sexual difficulties.
Before you take the other step out the door in your marriage you may want to consider Discernment Counseling first. Discernment Counseling is not couples therapy, but it's a process, for you and your partner to participate in. Discernment Counseling will help you have a clearer path in making a decision regarding the future of your marriage. Whether it's to leave the marriage, stay in it and work on it, or just let it be, at least you will know that you came to the decision with integrity, clarity and a deeper understanding of yourself and yourself in relationship.
