Individual Couples Therapy
When one partner can’t come to therapy or is unwilling, there are many things the other partner can do in therapy to shift the dynamic for the better. No reason for one person who is motivated and willing to work on the relationship to be excluded from couples or marriage counseling.

Discussing the Undiscussable, Hearing the Unhearable
Evidence-based studies show what leads to effective outcomes in therapy when choosing a therapist is whether they are a fit for you and how well you connect with them. Can you discuss the undiscussable with them? Can they hear your unhearables? Forging a connection — the therapeutic alliance as it is termed — is what makes the difference.
Striving & Thriving
It is important that you find a clinician who will support your steps toward change, guide your goals, and help you integrate your healing while empowering you toward striving and thriving.

Why Relationship Therapy?
At the end of the day, and profoundly at the end of our lives, our relationships are what’s most important.
Begin with the End in Mind
When a dear friend with cancer approached the end of life she remarked, “Michelle, life is about the people. Here at the end, all that matters in life is our relationships.”
“…life is about the people. Here at the end, all that matters in life is our relationships.”
“That’s who you don’t want to leave, and worry about when you’re gone,” she said.
It’s About Connection
Relationships are woven like threads through the fabric of our lives. Evidence-based research tells us that our earliest attachments impact the brain’s neural connections shaping us as humans, influencing how we connect, and teaching us what we know of love.
Improving Relationship Skills
However, none of us come into this world with relationship skills which is why relationship therapy can be helpful to strengthen our connections, and help us to make sense of our lives.
Often, the effort to shift the struggle in our relationships begins first with improving ourselves.
