Marriage/Relationship Counseling

marriageNothing we do as adults in this century of American life is more complicated or seeded with land mines than marriage and family relationships. Those who have attempted to achieve and maintain any kind of on-going intimate relationship have no doubt found that bliss can turn to anger and regret.

Marriage and relationship counseling focuses on removing communication barriers and blocks. As your counselor, I work to help you and your partner make sense out of confusing emotional dynamics. At times it is necessary to deal with relationship fears of intimacy, including sexual intimacy, or counteract feelings of resentment.

After the pattern(s) that trouble a relationship are identified, the task is to enable each person to see their part in the process and work on that. Troubled couples often get into a cross-fire of blame that rivets their focus and efforts on trying to change the other person. That doesn't work. Only you can change you. I will make efforts in counseling to help you get calm enough to change yourself, if you choose to. If each person can do that, there is hope, and things in the relationship can improve.

At times is is necessary to offer divorce and disillusionment counseling to help a person face difficult realities concerning the termination of a formerly cherished relationship.
