At Awakenings Center - Helping Couples with Love and Sex we specialize in couples counseling or marriage counseling. One partner often feels the need for more closeness either emotionally through talking, time together and/or sexually. The other partner gravitates toward work, productivity, space and solitary hobbies. One feels starved and the other feels criticized. The first fears abandonment, the latter fears control.

We can help you find a comfortable middle ground where your needs are met in abundance!
