Relationships are difficult to navigate when you bring two individuals together from opposing views, raised in different homes, carrying the weight of emotional baggage into the relationship. There are no rules or guidelines, but there are many silent expectations. The breakdown of most relationships is not financial problems, affairs, abuse, in-laws, or other major issues. The breakdown of relationships is simple communication. Communication is the key to any good relationship so a problem will be solved with communication. When there is a breakdown in communication then problems such as anger begin to build.
Once there are problems in the relationship the damage cannot be undone, but trust has to be rebuilt and the couple needs to learn effective communication skills.
I strongly recommend pre-marital counseling for those couples who are engaged and/or dating for several months and considering marriage especially especially a second marriage. I have been providing couples counseling for 14 years. Couples counseling is a difficult process and takes time and commitment from both individuals but change is possible.

Tammy has been emotionally supportive and constructive in her advice. I value my time with her and appreciate all the expertise she brings to bear on our sessions. A+
She has been consistent and faithful at the task at hand and has been instrumental in my healing process. She’s committed to being a great therapist and achieves it. I highly recommend her!
Tammy has been a priceless help to my wife & I both! Prior to meeting Tammy via our video sessions & messaging, we were dealing with a lot of issues & just weren’t able to see eye to eye on problems. It was a constant battle & neither of us were very happy in our marriage. As we worked with Tammy on ourselves, both as a couple & as individuals, we have been able to understand how love each other more. How to react to previous triggers & talk through problems.
As Tammy puts it “we needed to learn a new dance with each other”. That simple approach has been the foundation of our healing. Tammy is patient, understanding & is able to pull out our desire to do what’s needed in order to progress as a loving & happy couple.
Always available even over the messaging app has been a life saver as well. She encourages us to resolve problems/arguments that arise between us on the message board. This way she can monitor & guide us. This has helped immensely as well!
Thank you Tammy for your help in reconnecting my wife & I. We are so happy to have been connected with you!!
See you at our next session!! :)
Tammy is great.
I have only had 2 sessions with Tammy. First one was kinda a meet and greet. The 2nd one we got more into our marital issues. I left that session with hope and new tools to use in a positive way for my marriage.
Tammy is AMAZING, BY FAR My favorite councilor I would definitely go to her for more than marriage help but personal as well.
Tammy understands the dynamics of marriage and finds ways to implement positive activities.
Have only had one video session with Tammy but felt very comfortable right away. She was easy to talk to and came across as a competent and caring person.
