As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist I pay attention to the role of context in a problem and in solutions.
Many of my clients are struggling to overcome situations and expectations that feel out of their control. Whether these are coming from the inside or outside they can be overwhelming and painful. It can feel like we are no match for our thoughts and feelings but my clients learn to recognize their resources, using them to tame negativity bias, isolation and despair. In that process clients experience their relationships and actions aligning more with what they really want.

Having walked through difficult seasons myself I understand the need to have someone walk alongside you, your marriage, or your family as you journey through your current season.
There is so much noise pulling teenagers and individuals toward a false sense of self that they forget what is needed/wanted in the first place. While feeling stuck you want to move forward to experience flourishing and allow the noise to fade away. As the noise subsides you can start taking steps to become the teenager, man, couple, family you know you were meant to become.

Marriage Counseling Therapists

How does marriage counseling work?

Marriage counseling works by teaching couples concrete skills to communicate with one another and solve disagreements in healthy ways. A trained mental health professional works with both members of a couple to explore difficulties the couple may be having and helps them develop skills to address these matters. Couples who don’t have any difficulties but want to prepare for marriage may develop skills for the future.

How long does marriage counseling typically last?

Marriage counseling is a short-term form of therapy; the process may last between four and eight sessions. Other forms of relationship guidance from mental health professionals, such as couples therapy, are longer lasting, may focus on the past rather than just the present, and are tailored to the individual couple and their emotions, history, and patterns in the relationship. Couples therapy often lasts for 12 weeks or longer.

Is marriage counseling effective?

Marriage counseling helps many couples develop relationship skills that may not have been acquired or tested in a relationship; partners may be better able to communicate and address conflict following counseling. However, there are many different forms of marriage counseling, and this form of counseling does not have as strong an evidence base as other modalities such as couples therapy.

Is marriage counseling effective if only one partner wants to go?

Yes, marriage counseling can still be effective if one partner convinces the other to engage in the process. Of course, whether counseling is effective depends on the couple’s commitment to work on their relationship; however, the short-term, skills-based nature of marriage counseling makes it a relatively easy “ask” of a partner, and the hesitant individual may see its value once counseling begins.
