In order to get to a healthier and more productive place, we need to give up our fear of conflict, turmoil and resistance.

Couples Counseling

Relationships are a fundamental part of our lives and human development. Unhealthy relationships can negatively impact your life in many ways. Whether it is a friendship, a family relationship or a romantic relationship, improving communication and strengthening that connection can have a positive impact on mental and physical health. Relationship issues can be addressed in individual, couples or family counseling. Cultural awareness is integrated into each method.  

Common topics

  • Communication: Build skills and techniques that enhance your communications.

  • Recurring Issues: Work through problems that keep coming up and can’t be resolved.

  • Support: Learn how to support each other’s needs while meeting your own.

  • Transitions: Gain extra support during a stressful transition, whether it is becoming a new parent, losing a job or remodeling a home.  

Many people wait until things are really difficult before getting help. The earlier you get support, the better it is for your relationship. Going to counseling is a way of actively working on and strengthening your relationship.
