Create Healthy Communication
Positive, effective marriage counseling is the key to a healthy happy marriage. It brings out the best in both of you. It helps you have honest, courageous conversations that lead to positive change.
Our strengths-based approach helps you both move past resentment or withdrawal and gain a new understanding of yourselves and each other.
You’ll learn healthy communication skills revitalizing and strengthening your unconditionally loving connection.
Build Emotional Intimacy
Effective marriage counseling focuses on helping you both feel cared for, respected, and understood — and like you’re getting your needs met in the relationship. True intimacy generates compassion, kindness, and responsiveness and repairs your strong attachment bond.
Rediscover Joy and Satisfaction
We help couples evolve so that marriage stops feeling like “work” and starts feeling easy, effortless, and fun again. You can grow a powerhouse partnership grounded in shared values and unconditional love.
We help you discover what happy couples know, you rediscover your delight with each other, manage everything as a unified team, and enjoy the simple pleasures of your beautiful shared life.
Continue Growing Together
Couples who embrace the challenge of growing together emerge with a new understanding, new skills, and a stronger, deeper connection. They are better prepared to thrive, whatever the future may bring.
Our positive, powerful approach to expert marriage counseling helps you learn how to work through anything together effectively and get your marriage back on track. You’ll “graduate” with an enduring skill-set — empowered to continue growing together over the decades ahead.

What Our Clients Say:
“Lisa seemed to understand our unique situation and highly capable of helping us.”
“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.”
“Bre is very bubbly but also patient and good at taking care of any concerns or questions throughout the process.”
“She was a very good listener, and did a good job at making my partner and I both feeling heard.”
“Even though we just started, Georgiana is already helping us come together stronger as a couple. I appreciate her candor, frankness and suggestions.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“Lisa is very kind and she can hear our concerns and guide and direct us appropriately.”
“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.”
“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.”
“Georgi has been creative in her approach and committed to helping us grow”
“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.”
“I like Jennifer’s explanation of her approach and her career experience aligns with what we are looking for.”
“I feel Ben is a good fit for us. We both felt comfortable talking with him.”
“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.”
“Brittany was very insightful. She was very easy for us to talk to. We enjoyed our experience with Brittany.”
“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.”
“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 :)”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“She has provided us with reassurance and helpful techniques to use.”

“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!”
“Elizabeth always is prepared. She is thoughtful and asks thought-provoking questions. We are enjoying our sessions with her.”
“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!”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“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.”
“She’s [Georgi] empathetic, caring and we both feel supported by her.”
“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.”
