Couples Counseling & Premarital Counseling
Learn more about the types of counseling offered at Connected Brain Counseling below.
"The quality of our life is based on the quality of our relationships," Esther Perel, a well known Couples Counselor, has said many times. So if you're considering couples counseling, ask yourself...how is the quality of my relationship affecting the quality of my life?
How to Know You Need Couples Counseling
Fewer intimate late night conversations, more arguments over mundane chores. Less spontaneous sex, more sleeping back to back. More talking over each other, less listening to understand. You coordinate the kids, or weekend plans, or trips back home to see their parents...but that feeling of deep fulfillment is missing.
Couples Counseling asks for grace, humility and openness from the relationship. And not only that, its asks for you to access a deep level of vulnerability within yourself.
And that can be down right frightening! We're here to tell you though, that as a human being you are wired for deep connection with others. Especially your partner! It's part of survival. When that connection is threatened by an outside force (erhm, like a therapist asking the tough questions) many couples choose to not risk leaving their comfort zones.
Our team is skilled, ready and excited to help you and your partner reconnect.
Our style of Couples Counseling is based in Terry Reals' Relational Life Therapy (RLT). We focus on attachment styles, understanding gender constructs, actively teaching your partner how to respond to you in real time and how to gently encourage deeper connection each and every session.
In session, you can expect direct communication that is coated in empathy and grace for the relationship. There is no one size fits all to couples counseling so we encourage you to communicate with your therapist on what works for you (and what doesn't!) so you can get the most out of your time in couples counseling.
