About

Helping good people to get better at doing what they want to do.
Couple counselling is for partners regardless of their sexual orientation, or social status as a couple. Relationship counselling can be for polyamorous relationships as well as two partner relationships or relationships within the family. Family Therapy is about improving health and reducing stress by improving relationships
Partners often benefit from identifying strengths and recognizing what they already do that helps. Couples benefit from learning how to really listen to understand. And they benefit from recognizing when they are competing vs cooperating with each other. Often it helps couples to "recontract" with each other to set new specific, measurable and achievable goals. All of this work is based on building or rebuilding a relationship of trust and consideration of each other. It may even be that an important consideration is that it may be time to separate. Negotiations to have good ending can be a key part of couple therapy. Reducing conflict can benefit children the couple, and needs to be a primary goal. The couple/participants decide the goals and the therapist provides the tools.
