It usually takes couples about 6 years to get help for problems in their relationship or marriage . While there are many reasons for that, that is a long time to be unhappy. Couples/ marriage counseling works, even after infidelity and other significant events. Sexual and intimate issues are also commonly experienced but difficult to discuss. I have many years of experience and training regarding these challenges and create a safe an comfortable environment for addressing them. For individuals, I deal with the range of relationship issues, depression, anxiety, sexuality, and recovery from addiction.

Do you feel stuck? That something is missing but you're not sure what? How about that you know what's missing and it's being true to who you are? Throughout the years of experience that I have working with children, adolescents, young adults, and adults I have learned that at the basis of all of our life experiences, we all wish to be heard, accepted, and to feel connected to ourselves, others, and our emotions. By being in a safe therapeutic relationship that accepts you as you are, you are able to unburden the heaviness that you've been carrying and with this new feeling of relief, there is hope for something new and healing.

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.
