It is true that we all long for strong, healthy, and meaningful relationships. It is also true that every relationship has suffered injuries and stressors that test its strength and health. Couples counseling offers the opportunity to expose places where each partner has injured and received injury and works to develop the empathy and compassion needed to move toward forgiveness and reconciliation. Client's will benefit from an approach that marries insight-oriented family systems theory with pragmatic tools geared toward enhancing each partner's understanding of the other and equipping each partner to better love the other.

One of the great separators between successful, thriving couples and couples whose relationships seem to just progress from one problem to another is this: their attitude toward those problems. Couples who are finding success in their relationships are often those that approach their inevitable issues with a solution-focused attitude or mindset. Focus on finding solutions, not problems. When times get tough, don’t give up on your relationship. We believe that there is nothing more precious than the relationships you cultivate in your life. You may be able to work things out on your own, but it is really worth the risk? Don’t take the chance; let Thriveworks Charlottesville help today.

Within Couples Counseling the ability of the therapist to establish an environment of safety, respect and compassion for each member of the couple is VERY important to success. When both feels SAFE....the BENEFITS are numerous. I have been in your situation myself in the past and understand the need for assurance that your therapist will NOT take sides...but work for the success of the clients needs. The skill to develop this safe place is as important as any theory. I have been honored to consult with many couples over my 25 yrs.

In working with couples, my goal is to discover what each individual wants from the relationship, and collaborate to get there. Several topics that we cover in couples counseling are: improving communication skills, finding ways to compromise and resolve conflict, forgiveness, and exploring ways to create balance in the relationships. Another essential task of couples counseling is to discover how each individual expresses care and affection. Getting on the same page on how each of you gives and receives love is a great step towards deepening your connection to one another.
