Feel Like It’s Too Late?

Do you feel like a roommate instead of a romantic partner? The stress of life, parenting, or finances can be a roadblock to getting along, communicating effectively or being the best couple you can be. Nurturing and sustaining a relationship can be hard work.

If you are looking for couples counseling (relationship therapy), then you might already be fed up or wonder if it is too late. You have likely tried everything you already know how to do to get along better and stop the discord.


If you have not been successful with fixing the problems in your relationship, that does not mean that you have failed. Your partner probably did not come with a user’s manual, and the unique skills needed for your relationship are not inherent nor advertised—they are skills you need to learn. Couples counseling can help with that.

We specialize in working with highly sensitive, gifted and reactive people, and we understand high intensity in relationships. We also understand the frustration you might feel from trying to fix what feels like insurmountable differences.

How Couples Counseling Starts (First 3 sessions):

  • We’ll discuss your history as a couple and your story, your challenges, and your goals.
  • We’ll explore how you communicate.
  • We will examine and identify habits or patterns in your relationship, and if called for, begin with some new tools.
  • We’ll form a Treatment Plan (a map of where we’re going). Then, even as we follow our plan, we can adjust it as needed.

Thrive With Couples Counseling

We have extensive training in Family Systems Therapy, and often use a systemic approach to working with couples. Typically, couples counseling will include:

  • An objective exploration of the pros and cons of your situation
  • Learning about your family of origin patterns and values
  • Using specific exercises to increase communication, build trust and resolve conflict
  • Recommending “homework” so that you can practice what you learn
  • Working as a team to resolve your pain and challenges
  • Compassion and empathy as you identify and better understand your differences
  • Working with a therapist who works to understand, support and challenge you so that you can attain your goals

Problems don’t usually go away on their own. Don’t put off couples counseling.
