Being a part of a couple can be the most rewarding venture but at times it can be extremely challenging. As a couple moves through life there are bumps in the journey. Whether it is related to parenting, communication or lack of, infidelity issues or wanting to enrich a relationship, counseling can be beneficial. Sometimes a couple needs an unbiased third party to help guide and clarify. I can help you on the road to a rewarding relationship.

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. The genders stereotypically flipflop over sex with the man being the emotional distancer but sexual pursuer and the woman being the emotional pursuer but having low desire. We can help you find a comfortable middle ground where your needs are met in abundance!

The basic tenets of marital counseling are addressed in my couples therapy, including but not limited to: Communication, Problem-Solving, and Conflict-Resolution. In addition, I believe that each partner is responsible for his/her own choices and cannot, nor should not, try to change the other person. Inevitably, change occurs in the family system if one is working on his/her own issues and taking responsibility for his/her own actions. Therefore, as each person learns to experience the grace that God extends to him or her can he or she see the partner through God's eyes and be able to extend that grace to the partner as well, ultimately finding healing in their couple relationship.

Couples sometimes get into a negative and hurtful cycle where one behavior causes a negative reaction that ultimately leads to a feeling of disconnection in both parties. Each partner then is frustrated, hurt, and sad to see their relationship slip away. Most have tried to change behaviors or to have conversations about their relationship but find themselves going back to the old negative cycle very soon feeling stuck and more frustrated. My work with couples consists on helping them feel reconnected and in a safe and loving relationship. This leads to a new positive cycle of interaction where both can continue to grow together.

Couple counseling/marriage counseling means addressing his problems/her problems/their problems. That can be quite a task. I have been doing successful couple counseling for over 25 years. Usually the process goes like this: healing hurts, creating the team spirit, learning who we are, making a relationship vision, and finally making the vision work. I do not patch up relationships. I help to recreate new ones from the mess of old ones. Visit me at: www.MarriageCounseling.org

Most people do not realize that choosing a partner for life is one the biggest, most important decisions to make. If one does not carefully choose his/her partner it will impact their happiness. Both partners have to be equally invested in a relationship in order for it to work. In other words, each partner must be able to trust and respect one another as well as be sexually attracted to one another. Fifty percent of marriages end in divorce due to a lack of commitment and training. It is rare that individuals today have been taught ways to reach martial satisfaction. Therefore, individuals bring into their relationships a great deal of baggage. Contact me if you have any couples concerns.
