Self-pay Couple's Coaching & Counseling
Relationship problems are totally normal, but there may come a time when you could benefit from professional support.
In days gone by, couples had few options for relationship help.
They could seek the opinion of trusted friends and family, or their pastor. But this ended up with people who had an investment in the outcome giving advice that was self-serving.
They could make an appointment with a pyschologist, who usually worked closely with a psychiatrist and used the "medical model"
The medical model called for one person in the relationship to be deemed "the identified or sick patient" while their partner was included in their sessions.
From the start, this created a treatment environment where one person (or their illness) was blamed for the conflicts in the marriage!
This kind of scapegoating caused many a couple to feel frustrated and lost.
Worse yet, the advice of those times was frequently based on what an individual therapist considered to be "best" in a marriage, usually based in large part on their own opinions and experiences.
But what works in your psychotherapist's life doesn't necessarily make it effective for your unique relationship.
What's different about CoupleScience?
The primary difference at CoupleScience is we do not see a problematic relationship as the fault of one partner over another. We don't scapegoat individuals. We view the relationship itself as the primary focus. Our interventions are research based and interactive. Couples are guided to focus on the things they will need to do in the long term for the good of their marriage.
The counselor/coach/teachers at CoupleScience are trained to identify the strengths of every relationship and build on those, while ferreting out the problematic mindsets & behaviors that have proven to be detrimental to a happy home.
We are extremely experienced in helping people overcome stress-related issues including depression, anxiety, PTSD, relationship conflicts, and many more issues. I will help you in any way that I can. I believe in helping individuals feel better, have increased energy and hopefulness, as well as achieve goals related to work, school and home.
Each individual is unique and requires an intelligent and compassionate assessment of their current issues so I can understand not only what is happening to you right now, but also how your past has affected present day problems. Ultimately my goal is to help you become your best self, and find relief from the pain of ongoing anxiety, depression, or trauma.
We help you take the first step. and learn skills to last for years to come.
