Working with couples can be some of my most rewarding work. All couples have unique needs and challenges that can sometimes interfere with love, committment and the parternship. When both parties want to correct the problem and heal the relationship, I will work with you to identify the problem and then work with you to go from problem focused to solution focused.

Couple Counseling in Asheville, NC We have a built in urge to couple up and be connected. So, feeling attracted or 'falling in love' is the easy part. But, learning how to merge two lives together takes more than love alone. That's where couple counseling offers specialized guidance. My couple counseling emphasizes developing practical day to day habits that strengthen your connection - and the ways to manage your differences without arguments or fights. Everyone wants this in their relationship, but few have had a chance to learn what really works for it to happen. Counseling is an effective way to discover how to have the relationship you want, without the heartache of trial and error.

See marriage counseling. My approach is pretty much the same for all couples. Obviously with married partners the issue of divorce or separation is sometimes on the table, which adds to the complexity, though long term unmarried couples face the same feelings minus some of the legal complications. Couples of whatever background or level of commitment can benefit from taking responsibility for their issues, learning effective expression of differences, and learning how to listen to each other.

Perhaps you & your partner are bickering more frequently and damaging your relationship. Maybe your partner has stopped communicating with you & doesn't give you enough attention anymore. Or maybe you've discovered those things you used to think were so adorable or "unique" about your partner are now driving you crazy. Opposite traits often attract us while we are dating, but can become a problem when, for example, night after night your spouse wants to stay home and you need to go out to be around people. Couples therapy can clarify the issues and find a way for both you & your partner to have your needs met. I can help you explore ways to fix your relationship issues.
