Relationships

Couples – Premarital, Married, Life Partners, Same-Sex Relationships

                           “Relationships last not because they were destined too last.  Relationships last longer because                                                                          two people made a choice to keep it, fight for it, and work for it.”       uknown

                 We offer a unique approach to sessions that include my partner and I working together with the couple. Our vision is to support each individual to be profoundly and respectfully connected, even during periods of conflict.  We enable this connection in both individual and group sessions using skills learned from our training as a Level II & III PAIRS (Practical Application of Intimate Relationship Skills) instructors as well as my LCSW-C training and my partner’s coaching certification.   

From our experience working with over 100 couples, we have learned that it is never too early or too late in a relationship to gain "the skill" of being connected. In addition, we bring the lessons learned from over 40 years of marriage.

For clients that prefer a female or male, we provide  “individual” counseling or coaching.  Together, we have over fifteen years of experience seeing couples individually, in a group setting, and leading the following courses:

Families  

Through our work with individuals and couples, we have learned that the well-being of the couple has a direct effect on the well-being of the family.  This has led us to extend our services to include family counseling.  Many of our clients come to us with issues that have roots in their family of origin.  These issues are often carried into their current family whether it is a traditional, blended, same-sex, foster, or separated/divorced family.  

 “Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is  open, and rules are flexible - the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family.”     Virginia Satir
