Connie Curlett View Specialties

I help people find healing, empowerment and harmony in their life and relationships. Whether you have something specific you want to address, or have a general feeling of being stuck and don't know where to start, I can help you move towards the life you want and deserve.

I am passionate about relationships, specializing in separation and divorce prevention or recovery. I provide a variety of tools along with nonjudgmental support to help you move towards your goals. Trained as a psychotherapist and life coach I bring a unique blend of counseling and coaching into our work together.

I specialize in working with couples who are struggling in their relationship, facing the end of their marriage or couples who are divorced and want co-parenting skills. Together we will work to strengthen and repair your relationship or help you end your relationship with dignity and respect.

Some of the approaches I use in individual counseling are:
Looking at the relationship between your thoughts, feelings and behaviors, how they influence the way you see your world. Working toward ending self-criticism and low self-worth, identifying how to create healthy satisfying relationships and gaining tools to manage and resolve conflict. I see my role as not only as an empathetic non-judgmental listener, but also as an educator, helping people understand what healthy functioning relationships look like.

My approach to relationship and marriage counseling:
I use a combination of two researched-based approaches; Emotionally Focused Therapy and The Gottman Method. I am also a certified Positive Discipline Parent Educator and can offer you parenting support in conjunction with couples counseling.

I am positive, caring and genuine. Our work together will be a dynamic and interactive process, blending empathy and compassion with humor and honesty.
