“Progress, of the best kind, is comparatively slow. Great results cannot be achieved at once; and we must be satisfied to advance in life as we walk, step by step.”
– Samuel Smiles
We understand that counseling, especially couples therapy, may not be something you’re excited about. Many people fear being blamed if they attend couples therapy. However, that is not the case. The goal is to work together to talk about issues in a constructive manner. Our goal is to help couples feel as comfortable as possible during the therapy process. During therapy most couples work on things like improving communication, resolving conflicts and building intimacy.
Many couples feel they experience the same problems over and over, often it feels as though nothing is resolved. Great relationships take work, if you are willing to work together as a couple you can strengthen your relationship, through learning to resolve conflict and communicate in a constructive manner. Be careful not to expect the first few visits to produce results. In many cases things may be revealed that you previously didn’t fully understand about each other or even about yourself. True progress takes time, but a great marriage is worth the effort!
Although we schedule appointments at least 48 hours in advance, we do offer emergency sessions. We understand there are times you are facing an urgent concern and would benefit from a session as soon as possible. We have counselors available most days of the week for these emergency situations. The rate of an emergency session is $169 for an LPC and $100 for an intern or associate. If you call for an emergency session outside of business hours we will get back with you as soon as possible.
Please remember that if the need is immediate or life threatening you should call 911.
