Making committed relationships work is tougher than ever, especially with parenting responsibilities and our recent economic stressors. Our "fast food" society has convinced many people that immediate gratification is attainable, contributing to the prevalence of affairs and divorce.


Couples counseling in a non-judgmental environment can help couples work through their difficulties and strengthen their relationship so that each feels heard and respected. The opportunity for both partners to work through "family of origin" issues can facilitate more mature and compassionate communication.
