Licensed Professional Counselor

In 48185 - Nearby to Pontiac.

Relationships are a vital part of our lives, but when our relationships cause stress and pain for us, we often need a third-party to help us navigate the path to a rewarding relationship. I will help you find the areas that cause problems, determine the underlying issues, and choose behaviors that will help your relationship rather than damage it. I will work with you on expectations, communication, behavior, and connecting. Learning to love and respect each other will take your relationship to a much more satisfying level.

"Is this relationship worth saving?" is a question many people find themselves asking. My approach to couples who are not married is similar to the approach used with married couples but different. Often being a couple is more complicated, there are often less understood rules adding confusion to the relationship. One method that I use is to clarify the rules of the relationship. Fear is often a reason that couples stay together. Unless this fear is addressed the relationship is jeopardy.

Although most relationships start out well, many often experience times of significant conflict. No matter what causes the conflict, it can create stress, tension, anxiety and feelings of hopelessness. People face many stressful situations in life; however, divorce and marital problems repeatedly rank as two of the top three most stressful situations (death of a spouse, child or close relative is number one). Many couples hope that relationship troubles will go away on their own. As a result, couples often wait many years after a problem starts before seeking out help such as marriage counseling. This can lead to the worsening of relationship problems and may create new problems such as physical symptoms of stress and psychological problems, such as...(view profile to read more)

There is hope! Oftentimes in life we just need support - someone to listen, provide compassion, a guiding light - to help you find peace within. I believe in the power of relationships and that together we can grow towards a more fulfilling and joyful life. When we become overwhelmed or uncertain about the paths we choose to travel, it can be helpful to orient ourselves and take inventory of the resources and tools available. Despite each person's need to walk their own distinct path, it can be beneficial to obtain wisdom and guidance from supportive allies. I would like to help you increase your quality of life and realize your true potential.

As a licensed clinical psychologist and addictions specialist, I work with couples, who are struggling with drugs, alcohol, rage, violence, and behavioral issues. I walk with couples through a partner or child's addiction and provide targeted therapy and information. I help couples, who have "tried everything," and turn to me for help with high-risk/high-conflict behavior. I have the crisis intervention skills to provide immediate help. I restore hope in relationships that are being torn apart by by many types of addiction and anger.

Licensened Psychotherapist

All couples struggle. Sooner or later, you will struggle between yourselves and certainly together. It has been said that by the time a couple comes to therapy, they have waited 8 years longer than they should have. That's a long time, spent wishing things would just get better and/or pretending the struggle isn't there. As life brings changes within you, between you, and around you, it can be very beneficial to talk with a therapist who can help you with insight, coping, and communication skills. A therapist may be able to help you talk about sensitive subjects, such as sex, money, the kids, the affair, the compulsion, the addiction, the health crisis, the mental illness, the divorce...

The key to any healthy relationship is communication. When communication breaks down it can put distance between the people involved in the relationship and damage it. If you feel that you are not able to effectively communicate with your partner, couples therapy can help. Couples therapy teaches you to communicate in a more effective manner. Skills like listening and compromising are enforced so that disagreements can be settled in a way that leaves both sides feeling better. If you would like to discuss options for couples counseling please call me today.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 48302 - Nearby to Pontiac.

Couple relationships can get into trouble within the first few minutes--or the first few chat messages. And troubles can arise after years of relational success. If you feel your relationship is going into negative directions, intervention can make a difference. My Identity Renegotiation approach seeks to locate and disable negative messages; find sources of support for a healthy relationship; develop an updated and more realistic image of who you can be in your relationship; and polish off the rough spots so you can move forward smoothly.

Couple counseling at Kairos Counseling Center is a two fold process. Taking a partner screening device to identify strengths and weaknesses each partner brings to the relationship is key to developing an effective solution to the couple's problems. Through couple communication skills training, a new appreciation for each other develops. Negative energy that was a part of the couple's old relationship vanishes when we communicate in a kind and loving way. No longer do couples war but now an agreed upon communication is established to help meet their needs.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 48309 - Nearby to Pontiac.

Are you tired of having the same argument with your mate? Those arguments that never get resolved? Usually under the surface are unmet needs and dreams. Let me help you and your partner communicate at a deeper level so you don't leave each other guessing what you want. Has there been a breach of trust or a devastating loss? It can help to have a trusted counselor walk with you in the journey to help strengthen your partnership at your most vulnerable times. With divorce statistics outweighing the odds of a successful marriage, you owe it to yourselves and your family to get professional input before throwing in the towel. Research shows children are healthier with parents who stay together.
