Couples Counseling in Edmond, OK

We rely on no relationship more than on our marriages or on our couple relationships. And few things hurt like conflict and pain in those relationships. I hope clients can see early in our sessions is that it can get better – that the arguing, the loneliness, the disappointment and the uncertainty can come to an end. Through couples counseling, I can help identify what behaviors and patterns are keeping you stuck and teach you how to shift into more productive, healing conversations. I would be honored to help you walk from this difficult season towards that better day.

In Couples Counseling, Working Together is the Key

Together we can help you get out escalating, unproductive arguments or resolve serious hurts lingering in your relationship. I have experience treating a range of marriage issues such as:

  • Chronic arguing
  • Feeling isolated or alone in the relationship
  • Trust and forgiveness issues
  • Infidelity/Affairs
  • Sexual problems
  • Considering divorce or separation
  • Premarital counseling
  • Dealing with mental issues in the relationship
  • Boundaries and expectations for relationship

Frequently Asked Questions about Couples Counseling

My partner doesn’t want to come. What should I do?

This is a difficult but common situation. First, try having the conversation about starting counseling when you are not arguing. Next, I usually recommend to schedule your first appointment and then invite your partner to join you. If they decide not to attend, then we can discuss what progress you can make individually.

Can we really heal from an affair?

Yes. Traditionally, many people say an affair is the ultimate deal breaker but when actually faced with the crisis, many couples discover they want to repair the relationship. We have a lot invested in our marriages and it makes sense to try to fix it if possible.  Affair recovery is hard work but if both of you are willing to put in the work then most couples come out with a dramatically different and improved relationship.   

Will you tell us if we should work on it or just get divorced?

I will not give you an opinion on whether to divorce or stay married.  In fact, I am legally bound by my license to not give an opinion.  I can outline the areas that need to be addressed and how to work on those areas. 

We have had this problem for our whole relationship. Can it really change?

Old patterns can be hard to change but are absolutely changeable.  Some of the most fun moments as a counselor is watching a long-term married couple discover that new connection with each other they had always been wanting.
