Couples counseling can include pre-marriage counseling where the couple will be given a clear Biblical understanding of God's design for marriage. Topics that will be covered include communication, faith, family issues, finances, and the physical. Also included is the use of the temperament profile which gives couples the basic reasons why they do what they do.

Couples therapy is my passion! Relationships and all the dynamics that go along with them truly amaze me. Couples in any stage of a relationship can benefit from new perspectives and proven tools that can increase effective communication, solve problems before they start, and nurture love and respect toward one another. Restoring broken marriages and relationships is achievable. Often only one partner in the marriage or relationship is willing to come. That is normal and is often a springboard to amazing growth and health for both the individual and his or her relationships. Call for an appointment. (770)548-3034

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.

My approach to couples counseling combines three of the most popular current methods of relationship counseling. All three begin with simple techniques and education in order to help couples decrease tension and bitterness, if it exists. We then, in a non-judgmental environment, explore ways to develop a deeper bond of trust. When couples can deeply trust one another, it becomes much easier to develop habits of love and appreciation in the relationship.

Over time couples can get stuck in patterns of relating to one another which can, not only be non-productive, but can be counter-productive to what you really long for, a safe, loving, and respectful relationship. While you cannot change the other person, you can change yourself. Once you begin to make productive changes in how you relate to your spouse (or boyfriend/girlfriend), it opens up the possibility to change and improve the relationship. Having a qualified third party to talk with the two of you can help you both to sort through your thoughts and feelings and possibly to gain a fresh perspective.

I am interested in helping couples to experience more love, intimacy, trust, sexual connection and joy. However, most couples come to see me in some significant distress. I work with all kinds of problems: affairs and infidelity, disputes over pornography use, ongoing distrust and frustration, previous trauma and general dissatisfaction. I encourage couples to seek help sooner rather than later, as the longer these patterns and difficulties persist,t he more difficult it can be to interrupt them. However, it is rarely too late. I'm aways happy to provide a consult and assessment for you and your partner to decide if Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy is for you.

I work with couples from varied backgrounds, at all stages of their relationship, from newly dating to newlywed to long married. Couples need not be married to see me for therapy. You will learn tools to improve communication and understanding which then facilitates working on issues that you feel need to be addressed. LGBTQ couples are welcome.

Thanks for reviewing my website! If you are a couple or individual experiencing communication problems, a break-up, trust issues around dishonesty or infidelity, fear of committment, frequent distructive arguments or just need some pre-marital counseling to get your marriage off on the right footing, your personal concerns will be my priority.

For couples who are seeking to grow their marriage in positive ways, I use a model that incorporates 8 principles for strengthening and refining marriages that are NOT facing significant problems. This is not marriage counseling, as much as it is coaching for healthy joyous living together. Another feature of couples counseling is to work with couples who are facing challenges with parenting.

In my therapy for couples I take the stance that your relationship is my "client". Using the studies and approach that the Gottman Method of Couples Counseling has developed we will learn what the "Sound Relationship House" is made up of and how to apply those principles to your own. How to maintain connection even when you vehemently disagree, how to grow closer by building "Love Maps", how to build true friendship in your relationship, how to strengthen or rediscover intimacy, how to recognize when we are sabotaging all of this, among other things. These tools and more will help you develop a relationship that is strong and sure.

Couples therapy can take two paths: focusing on the problems or focusing on the solutions. Many individuals enter couples counseling assuming that they will simply vent their frustrations to a counselor/judge who will tell them who's right. My approach is systems based and focused on solutions. We'll look at how relationship cycles emerge and get maintained through efforts to solve problems. Couples will grow in their understanding of each other and move beyond hurt and resentment to reconnect and strengthen their relationship.

Everyone enters into relationships and marriage with their own set of ideas and their own ways of handling stress and difficulties. Many times the skills we learned as children to handle difficult situations and relational conflict are the same skills that we are trying to manage with as adults. Changing the way one reacts to stress in relationships and enhancing communication skills are key in developing healthy marriages and couple relationships.
