What do I think is the number one reason that couples split up? Hint...it's not money! It's the ability to resolve conflict without damaging the relationship or each other. I truly believe that couples struggle with this and they miss out on the cues for connection all too often. Improving the respect and communication is vital to restoring a good relationship when the trust and respect have degraded. Really understanding your partner is another key to avoid those damaging fights because you realize that what your partner does is not about you. Many people in relationships don't understand this. I can help you uncover "what went wrong" and get your relationship back on track.
I am a licensed professional counselor in Tennessee, trained at the University of Florida in the areas of mental health and marriage and family counseling. I have been working as a counselor for almost ten years and have a wide range of experiences as a counselor. I have trained personally with John Gottman, and use his evidence based approach to couples work. I also use some Emotion Focused theory along with this for the optimum experience for couples that are struggling. I find marriage and couples counseling very rewarding and love to help them get back on track. I have worked with couples from all ethnic and orientation backgrounds. I want to help you create a great relationship and rediscover why you fell in love to begin with.
