Individual Adult Counseling:

People commonly come to counseling because they:

  • are feeling depressed and/or anxious
  • want to cope more effectively with stressful situations
  • struggle with personal and professional relationship conflicts and resentments
  • are confused about their feelings of tension and fear
  • have self-defeating and/or self-destructive thoughts or behaviors
  • are experiencing various life transitions that bring them feelings of grief and sadness
  • feel trapped in their current relationship or work situation
  • desire help in resolving past and present family conflicts
  • are emotionally and physically drawn toward someone outside their marriage or relationship
  • find it difficult to communicate with significant others in their lives
  • Feel guilty about past and/or current behaviors

Couple Counseling:

Couples seek counseling because they:

  • are frequently angry with one another
  • are unable to resolve particular grievances
  • feel unable to be heard and respected
  • are considering separation and/or divorce
  • are struggling with the aftermath of an extramarital issue
  • feel distant and alienated from each other
  • are seeking pre-marital counseling

In Couple Counseling, the focus is on the relationship. A safe counseling environment is provided to meet the overall goal of developing the skills to de-escalate your conflicts and to re- establish a mutually respectful emotional connection in your relationship.

The process is not about assigning “blame” to either partner but rather is about helping to create a new emotional bond whereby you and your partner can feel safe and secure again. Specific issues can then be addressed more effectively, with more compassion and even humor.

During this process, we will examine verbal and non-verbal communication styles that have impacted the feelings of trust in your relationship. We will work to increase your understanding of how to listen and communicate more effectively. In-office counseling exercises and out-of-office assignments may be offered to assist you in developing new patterns of sharing and problem solving.
