My Approach to Helping

The communication in your home right now is comparable to swinging your heart out at a golf ball that just can't be hit. What you've tried isn't working and here you are looking for help to get over this hump. You are looking for a light at the end of the tunnel and a way to move on in a happy, healthy direction with your partner.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Many couples go to counseling at some point in their relationships for various reasons to make it over humps just like what you are experiencing. Needing to spend some time in counseling is not an indicator that your relationship is doomed, it is more like a lever that gets you unstuck.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

For the couples who get help quick, in just a few months they are meeting goals set for counseling. Good therapy isn't meant to last forever but rather is meant to get you on your feet, arm you with tools and the independence to exit counseling comfortably. When therapy ends, you will have a lessened feeling of crisis during hard times while knowing your therapist will always be around if you need him or her in the future. So much happens over the span of a relationship, counseling is just a tool to help keep your relationship alive through the hills and valleys of time.
