Expert Couples Counseling and Coaching: Grow, Together
What Happy Couples Know
Couples counseling and relationship experts know it too: Healthy relationships don’t just happen. Like anything else worth having, we must create them, intentionally.
The strongest, happiest couples understand that rough patches are growth opportunities in disguise. When you proactively work on your relationship, it will flourish — and so will both of you.
Positive and Productive Couples Counseling & Coaching
We specialize in relationships and know how to help you create a satisfying, secure, and joyful partnership.
Our experienced relationship experts help you both feel comfortable, respected and understood. You’ll have “courageous conversations” that lead to real and lasting positive change in the way you communicate and connect.
Why Choose Growing Self For Couples Counseling?
Finding a good marriage counselor is hard, and not all therapists are the same. Most practitioners offering couples counseling lack specialized education and training in couples and family therapy, leading to ineffective or even damaging experiences for unsuspecting couples.
In contrast, the relationship experts of Growing Self are marriage and family therapists — authentic relationship experts with years of experience in evidence-based approaches that help you cultivate connection, improve communication, and grow together.
If it‘s time to work on your relationship, partnering with a competent marriage and family therapist will help you achieve the positive outcomes you deserve.

What Our Clients Say:
“Dr. Rachel is knowledgeable and professional. She is helping us make real progress on our relationship challenges and we are stronger as a team because of her guidance”.
“Not only was Renelle a great personality fit for us, her intelligence and experience in the areas we need really came through along with her approach as a teacher as much as a therapist – all the things we are looking for.”
“She’s [Georgi] empathetic, caring and we both feel supported by her.”
“Stephanie has helped us greatly with our communication and connection. We have had a very positive experience, and I am grateful for the wonderful help we’ve received.”
“I was comfortable with Ben and how he explained everything we could expect the first visit. I think he was fair to both of us and I would be interested in his insight.”
“Brittany has helped us find ways to deal with our differences, and avoid the downward spiraling of dumb bickering. We have learned ways to better communicate, relax our minds and bodies when things seem to be going badly, and stay more connected with each other.”
“What a Difference. We have had two experiences with counselors to date, the first as a couple, the second a 1:1 for me. Both experiences were terrible, the first comically so. Conversely, [our Growing Self marriage counselor] listened, communicated clearly, was able to take what we had shared and use it as the basis to suggest an approach that seemed based on our situation rather than pre-determined, and demonstrated sensitivity and emotional intelligence.”
“Linda is an empathetic listener, an analytical counselor. She helps you live better.”
“Kaily was fantastic to work with. My wife and I both appreciated how easy she was to talk to and found her advice and techniques to be very helpful. She did a great job at relating with us that made it easier to open up with our problems.”
“Elizabeth is very understanding of our situation and is giving us the insight and tools we need to have a successful solution to our problems.”
“Elizabeth always is prepared. She is thoughtful and asks thought-provoking questions. We are enjoying our sessions with her.”
“The most helpful part was Hunter’s understanding nature and ability to condense down what we said. He was very affirming in nature and was also able to offer perspective. I really appreciate that we was the one who led the discussion about having achieved our goals. As for different, I don’t think there is anything at this time.”
“I just wanted to thank you [Roseann] for the great session today. Your read on things has been remarkably accurate and we’re really happy we found you. I know we’re just beginning, but I’m incredibly encouraged by the real progress we’re already making and we’re very much looking forward to seeing you next week.”
“We’re both doing really great and we attribute it to our time with you [Roseann]. It truly has been a growing experience for us both, and while we’re still practicing the things you taught us- we both feel heard by the other. We thank you so much for your guidance during such a rough time. I can’t speak for xx, but I feel like I have my best friend back.”
“The best thing that Hunter did was hold us accountable and make sure that we were always clear and understood. If at any time we didn’t feel like we were achieving anything he was there to help guide us to more vulnerable communication.”
“He listens well. Hunter helped to teach us how to listen to each other, and how to be vulnerable, honest, and to open up about everything.”
“Her ability to facilitate open and honest conversation has been extremely impactful.”
“Lisa makes me feel very relaxed and comfortable. She gave good insight and overall it was a really positive experience. We are looking forward to continuing our work with her.”
“Linda makes us feel safe. She makes it so that we know that we are going to get through this together and come out stronger.”
“I like Jennifer’s explanation of her approach and her career experience aligns with what we are looking for.”
“Even though we just started, Georgiana is already helping us come together stronger as a couple. I appreciate her candor, frankness and suggestions.”
“Lisa is very kind and she can hear our concerns and guide and direct us appropriately.”
“Kanya is a delight to work with. She is helping me a lot to focus on important parts of myself to grow a healthy relationship.”
“She was a very good listener, and did a good job at making my partner and I both feeling heard.”
“We absolutely loved working with Jenna. We both were emotional when closing out, never thought we could get closer and stronger in our relationship, yet we have grown leaps and bounds.”
“I got more out of the first fifteen minutes of talking with you than I have from spending two years in therapy.”
“I feel Ben is a good fit for us. We both felt comfortable talking with him.”
“Georgi has been great. We’ve only had a few foundational sessions so far, but the time my partner and I spend both in and out of the office has been tremendously helpful.”
“I like the way that she talks with us and she makes me feel really comfortable after previous therapy experiences going poorly. And I think that she gives us good homework and tools that we can use.”
“Jessica has a way about her. She is very skilled at listening to us and picking out where we can improve our communication/connection with each other.”
“Kensington was intentional and warm, which is something we appreciate when it comes to letting someone in our personal life. Kensington asked us questions and provided feedback which was great as well.”
“She has provided us with reassurance and helpful techniques to use.”
“The most helpful parts were Seth’s ability to very carefully facilitate the very hard conversations that my wife and I could not do on our own”
“Hunter is kind and unbiased in his work. He makes us feel comfortable and has a strong background to intelligently move us in the right direction.”
“We are getting the tools that we need to better communicate and be more considerate of one another’s moods and needs. Natalie has offered straightforward information and concrete steps. Also, the zoom meetings are far more effective than I anticipated. The technology is easy to use and it creates the right environment for this sort of thing.”
“The quiz we took separately and then reviewing our answers to learn about our similarities and differences was really helpful. Also the “I feel/I need” communication technique was great advice!”
“Rachel does an amazing job facilitating constructive conversations, identifying root causes, and formulating a plan for tackling issues. My wife and I have tremendously benefited from our sessions with Rachel. Our relationship is stronger and there is more understanding between us.”
“Georgi was wonderful and I really appreciated her process minded approach. She was very good at deconstructing complex situations or emotions in a methodical way that made obstacles seem easier to overcome. She also made sure that myself and my partner felt validated throughout the process. I like that Georgi let us come forward with anything that happened in the week but she also always had a plan to direct the conversation in case we did not have anything to talk about.”
“Brittany was a great help, very thoughtful, and offered great insight and advice throughout our time together. I always felt heard/comfortable and she was encouraging of us stepping outside of our comfort zone. I can’t thank Brittany enough for how kind and supportive she is!”
“Teresa’s welcoming smile, warm and personal approach, and consistent ability to positively shift our perspectives really helped us grow as individuals, and as a couple.”
“She’s very nice. She’s smart and she leads the sessions well. We really like Tomauro.”
“We’re doing great! Indeed we had some fights, but always with a happy ending and no hard feelings afterwards. Thanks a lot for your help, it was crucial for our development as a couple.”
“She [Dr. Georgiana] is taking us through historical issues that need to be addressed before we can move forward. She tells it straight, “If things continue like this you can expect xyz…” She encourages and makes a case for decisions to be made, to take a stand and follow through.”
“Dori is understanding and calm, and helps us understand our feelings, communicate them, celebrate all positive steps, stay positive, and feel hopeful and loving toward each other.”
“Kathleen is supportive, adaptive, and professional. After a few sessions, I feel that she has taken the time to understand us and tailor our sessions to fit our style!”
“Bre is very bubbly but also patient and good at taking care of any concerns or questions throughout the process.”
“We worked through the arguments using the skills you have taught us and we are generally doing okay. A lot of the credit for that is thanks to your help. Thank you for all that you have done for us. We are very happy together and it is mostly thanks to the support you have given us.”
“Hunter taught us many useful techniques to help us communicate better, recognize and resolve conflicts. We also really like the part where he asked us to re-do our conversations. Those practices help us catch ourselves even before conflicts arise.”
“My partner and I have been seeing Dr. Harold for 4-5 couples sessions so far, and he has been incredibly personable and warm. He’s provided us both with a safe place where we feel encouraged to be vulnerable with one another. We absolutely love working with him and plan to keep doing so!”
“Our time with Josephine has been great so far. It gives us time set aside to talk and be listened to! We are learning great ways to embrace our differences and how to better communicate.”
“Lisa seemed to understand our unique situation and highly capable of helping us.”
“Georgi has been creative in her approach and committed to helping us grow”
“Dori helped us so much. Over multiple discussions, she helped us gain insights into what the other person was truly thinking and feeling, and what we were afraid to admit, too. She also gave us a collection of tools to try when things get tough. The combination of all these things has helped us work through and past much of the tension we couldn’t get over before.”
“Brittany was very insightful. She was very easy for us to talk to. We enjoyed our experience with Brittany.”
“Josephine showed us tools for recognizing conflicts / poor communication and pursuing resolution and achieving thoughtful dialogue. She also reinforced what was good about our relationship :)”
“Dr. Georgiana has been an enormous help to us as we’ve confronted challenging issues. She is helping us talk through things effectively.”
