Providing a space where healing, renewal, and reconnection can be experienced.
In my work with couples, I tend to be attachment- and emotionally-focused in my approach. I believe that most couples who are experiencing disconnection are stuck in a cycle of hurt. Wounds intensify as these patterns are experienced repeatedly. There is hope, and therapy can provide a place where painful disconnection ends and a new level of intimacy can be experienced. I commonly work with couples who are:
Struggling with communication and conflict resolution
Poor intimacy and emotional connection
Marital crisis due to betrayal and infidelity
Fighting against wounds experienced in family of origin or present relationship
Want help building a strong foundation for a relationship that thrives? I am a certified Prepare and Enrich counselor. I will help you process your relational strengths and areas that may need nurturing. Each partner will have an opportunity to explore their individual personality and family of origin themes in an atmosphere of learning and grace. Couples will sort through their marital expectations and work to gain effective communication and conflict resolution skills.
This pre-marital work requires 8 sessions. Cost is $400 ($50 per session) for the couple. There is an additional cost of $35 for the Prepare and Enrich assessment. The state of Tennessee offers a marriage license discount to couples who invest in pre-marital counseling.
