Many clients say that I have a spiritual gift for counseling couples. There's nothing more gratifying than turning around a marriage that almost ended in divorce. I use “Emotionally Focused Therapy” by Sue Johnson and “Gottman Method Couples Therapy” by John and Julie Gottman. Both methods have been researched over 40 years. Now we know exactly what creates masters and disasters of marriage. Statistics show that 75-85% of marriages are saved when using these two therapies. If prior couples therapy did not work for you, I recommend you see a counselor trained in these two methods. Read my educational articles and client stories on my website: www.Flourishing-Lives.com.

When two individuals commit to sharing lives together, even what seems to be the smallest stressor can be challenging at times. Relationships require time, commitment and investment in one another to face challenges large and small. Problems with one partner or both can weigh heavy on the relationship and can be explored to overcome. When couples are willing to address concerns and formulate solutions together, most relational distress is manageable. When this tension is left unaddressed, this can often breed resentment, greater obstacles, and deeper pain in the relationship. Whether you are dating, pre-marital, or have been married, couples counseling can be healthy for anyone looking to strengthen and maintain relationships.
