Keep your marriage fresh and growing no matter how long (or short) you have been married. On the prevention side of family life, counseling with individuals and families about positive parenting skills, marriage enrichment and couples communication sessions are all helpful opportunities for tuning up your marriage and refreshing your family life. We offer workshops on marriage and family throughout the year. See my workshops page for more information.
In marriage counseling the best way to repair the relationship that seems to be broken is to have both partners in the room together. The therapist can then observe where there may be “splinters” in the communication that need to be addressed and removed. Within the safe haven of the therapy session new ways to communicate may be practiced as the therapist acts as a “coach” in helping the couple find healing alternatives to making their relationship work.
