Marriage Counseling

“Make it your goal to create a marriage that feels like the safest place on earth.”
Gary Smalley

We all want relationship with a felt sense of closeness and emotional responsiveness. It seems coded into your very DNA. However, there are times in relationship where you feel isolated and abandoned leaving you feeling anxious or depressed. You may find yourself saying “Where did our love go,” or “I do not know how do we get stuck in the same argument, I don’t feel heard or appreciated.” Or maybe you feel like you are failing. Either way you did not realize marriage would be so hard. 

Even though your marriage is in a rocky spot you sill desire safe, loving, lasting relationship. This is possible when you have a map. Together we will embark on a journey to help you regain the connection you long for. The goal is to explore, identify, and build tools to help you and your partner have the loving and lasting relationship you both long for.

My goal is to create a safe and inviting place to gain perspective and practical skills to recapture the love you once shared. I have helped couples just like you move from a place of frustration and hopelessness to a place of connection and trust.

In our work together we will cover areas related to:

  • Understand love and how it relates to connection
  • Recognizing when you are stuck in harmful communication
  • Identify what can push love and connection away
  • How to have hard conversations
  • How to communicate with compassion and empathy
  • Asking for connection and understanding
  • Forgivness and Reconciliation
  • Creating deeper connection through touch and sex
  • How to keep the feeling of love alive and well

Being connected creates a sense of freedom and security. Our culture has labeled this as be “week” or “needy.” But, have you ever noticed when someone loves us or “has our back” you feel like you can take on the world? A secure, safe, and loving relationship is fulfilling not weakness!
