Couples Counselor

Steve Brownrigg, NCC, LADC, LMHP

Licensed Alcohol & Drug Counselor, Licensed Mental Health Practitioner

Within driving distance of Carter Lake

My philosophy is that most couples and family issues are primarily individual issues. I have developed a His-Hers-& Theirs approach that starts with Individual Therapy and joint relationship skills development, followed by identifying any remaining issues that need specialized approaches such as Transactional Analysis, Communication Enhancement or Parental Training. If there is an original basis for Love in the relationship, facilitating each spouse in their own movement toward individual wholeness and optimal functioning solves most marital issues, and enables them to enjoy a 1+1=3 relationship, often for the first time.

Good communication, healthy boundaries, assertiveness, the capacity to give and receive love, flexibility, patience, trust, understanding, empathy, - these are just some of the qualities needed to form and maintain healthy relationships. Our very first relationship, the one we experienced with our primary caregiver(s), laid the foundation for our attachment style and influences and all other relationships we develop throughout our lives. These relationships include ones we are in with family, our spouse/partner, our child(ren), our friends, and even our supervisors/managers and co-workers. Maybe you find yourself struggling with some of these relationships. If so, I can help.

My goal in relationship counseling is to help you as a couple reach deeper levels of understanding of one another, and deeper levels of trust. These two processes often go hand in hand, and they are the two basic elements that make up a relationship. Couple's counseling can provide you with a setting to practice hearing one another out, so that productive solutions to your conflicts can be reached. You can then take the principles of communication that you learned and practiced in counseling and apply them to your relationship so that the two of you can solve issues and come to understand each other more effectively in the future.

Communication is often the key to healthy relationships whether dating, engaged or married. Many times I hear couples say how frustrated they are with their partner because they “don’t hear me!” Couples therapy can help all couples learn how to effectively communicate, clearly express thoughts and feelings without offending or attacking our partners. Additionally, couples therapy can help each partner listen and truly understand what is being said, instead of formulating a quick rebuttal, they may regret later. Successful couples therapy can help each couple improve their relationship in a safe, confidential and healthy environment. Common concerns include: Physical Intimacy Trust Issues – Establishing or Rebuilding Learning how to...(view profile to read more)
