Avoid Break-Ups

Avoiding Break-ups

Are you broken-hearted, angry or worried about the state of your relationship? Does breaking-up seem like the only option? This might be a good time for a few sessions of Couples Therapy.  Even the best of relationships sometimes lean toward break-ups so that's not always a sign that things should actually end. I will be honest with you and help you reach the best decision for your circumstance. If there is a chance to work it out, I will help you find new tools, break old patterns and improve areas of frustration.

How can Couples Counseling help you?

Couples Therapy can help you break the patterns that disrupt your relationship. Learning how to communicate with attacking/blaming or unnecessary drama allows you to get unstuck and solve your problems together.  Couples Therapy can help you resolve ongoing issues, undo emotional damage and get over the past.

Saving a troubled relationship involves relating to each other in new ways and gaining a different understanding of what works with your partner. In order to renew a damaged relationship you must both agree to a change and be willing to consider new possibilities about your own actions as well as your partner's. I can help you with that.

Couples Therapy - Does it work?

When relationships falter it is often due to hostile communication, damaged trust or lack of effort. That said, relationships are very resilient. With effort and clinical guidance it is often possible to  turn things around and get your relationship back on track. I am here to help you with that.

Email is the quickest way to reach me

I look forward to hearing from you.
