We are couples counselors. Couple after couple have worked with us for- and beyond difficult transitions, anxiety, depression, anger, infidelity, infertility, loss, confusion and getting that "lovin' feelin'" back! We use methods like Relational Life Therapy, Gottman and conflict resolution. We even use play therapy with couples! But here's the most exciting piece of us - we do something that has proven to be remarkably successful. Co-Counseling. We’re a married couple that counsels you together! Co-counseling reduces bias, and better ensures that you will be heard, respected, and understood. Doesn't that sound great?

Co-Counseling brings that "ah-hah!" sense to relationship counseling. In our 23 years of marriage we have experienced infertility, miscarriage, depression, significant losses, deaths of friends and family, financial problems, extended family strife, and a spouse's disability with a caregiving spouse. Together, we bring our experience to yours.

Along with couples counseling at Real Connections Counseling, we offer Pre-Marital counseling, a chronic pain and disability support group (with/without caregivers), play therapy for couples and families, all-day seminars, topical groups, and marriage intensive retreats. We do not take insurance. But it’s our work that has mattered so much to our clients.
