Fantastic relationships don’t just happen. They’re grown.
All couples have ups and downs: Times when they feel close and connected, and times when things feel frustrating and hard. Believe it or not, the times that feel the hardest can be the biggest opportunities to take your relationship to the next level of connection, communication, compassion and trust.
Why? While new relationships are easy and fun, committed long-term couples need to do more than just enjoy each other. (Although that is important too). To have a strong, successful marriage you need to learn how to communicate effectively, show each other love and respect, work as a team, and get on the same page with their priorities and vision for your shared life together.
That doesn’t just happen. Healthy, happy couples invest in their marriages and learn the skills to make their partnership great. And, generally speaking, people aren’t typically motivated to work on things like this until there is a problem.
Every conflict is an opportunity for deeper connection. Every time things start to feel hard in your relationship, it means that you have a chance to grow together, learn something new, and increase your capacity for love… or else you’ll grow apart. The good news is that by successfully working through through these “growth moments,” your relationship will become stronger, deeper, and more fun than ever before.
Our Approach To Marriage Counseling & Couples Therapy
We bring out the best in both of you. Our marriage counselors have specialized education, training and years of experience in marriage counseling. We know how to help you both feel safe, comfortable and understood. Even reluctant partners leave their consultations feeling hopeful, and excited about building on the strengths of your relationship and enjoying each other again.
We understand love and attachment. As one of our couples famously said, “It’s not about the bacon.” We’ll never waste your time on superficial fixes. Our approach helps you both dig deeper, talk about the most important things, restore your trust and commitment, and strengthen your emotional bond. When you both feel loved and respected… everything else is cake. (Or possibly bacon).
Talking constructively about solutions is wonderful, but things only change when you take positive action. We know that the most important part of successful marriage counseling is not what we talk about — it’s what you do between your sessions. That’s why you’ll leave your sessions with new ideas, homework assignments, and a plan of action.
Many couples only try marriage counseling once. If it doesn’t work, they assume that their relationship is doomed. We believe that the future of your relationship is too important to risk on anything but the best. That’s why our experts only use the two evidence-based forms of marriage counseling that have been shown by research to create real results, and lasting change: Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy & The Gottman Method.
