I THINK WE CAN REALLY USE A COUPLES COUNSELOR, BUT I DON’T THINK MY PARTNER IS WILLING TO COME, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
If you are ready and open for couples counseling but your partner is on the fence, I recommend we schedule a call for all three of us to discuss what therapy can do for your relationship, what they want from this experience and how I can help you get there. Often times that is all it takes for the process to get started and for them to be open to coming in for a session.
If your partner is unwilling to come in, why not come in for yourself?
We can start to talk about what you need to change and how we can start your journey. If you partner wants to come in for a session or two to help your journey, they are more than welcome to join. It can show them that my approach is very causal and nothing to be worried about, which may open the door to couples therapy.
MY PARTNER WANTS TO SEPARATE, BUT I WANT TO TRY TO FIX OUR RELATIONSHIP. IS IT TOO LATE?
It’s never too late to try and do something different.
While it is important that we are working on the same goal, it is still beneficial to work on communication and respect. This is especially true for couples who have children.
We want to model for our kids effective communication and healthy relationship patterns, even if they relationship is dissolving.
I HEARD A COUPLES COUNSELOR IS GOOD FOR THOSE WHO ARE SINGLE, IS THAT TRUE?
Yes!!! All my single ladies and gents, couples therapy is a good place to understand who you become in a relationship, what behaviors you like, definitely what you don’t like and how to put yourself out there.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE working with singles on building them up and getting them ready for a relationship!

WHAT IF COUPLES COUNSELING IS NOT ENOUGH?
One of the many benefits of working with me and my approach is that I incorporate many different tools and tricks for building a stronger foundation for my couples.
One of the tools that I use is the Prepare-Enrich and Gottman Relationship Checkup assessments to help create a blueprint of those who come to my office.
These assessments go deep into every facet of a relationship and help to bring to light things that couples don’t realize are stopping them from a healthier and stronger relationship.
Plus it helps to speed up the process of our sessions!
WHAT IF WE ARE DOING OK? WE SHOULD ONLY COME IN WHEN THINGS ARE REALLY BAD, RIGHT?
You go to the doctor for an annual checkup right? Why not give your relationship the same kind of love and attention???
Plus...think about it. If you fix the minor things now, they won’t become bigger problems in the future which means less time in my office.
Save yourself time, love and money by scheduling a relationship checkup today!
