Couples Counseling

Waiting Area

Every relationship has its own unique challenges and strengths. Couples counseling attempts to help both people see the relationship in a more objective way. Instead of blaming each other, the couple can understand the motives behind their behaviors and learn to respond in more productive ways.
However, couples counseling involves more than just gaining insight. In counseling, couples are asked to improve their interactions and help their partner express private feelings more effectively. When a person feels safe, they are more likely to communicate what they are thinking and feeling. If they fear being rejected or criticized, they will keep their feelings to themselves.


Many people have experienced a negative reaction from others when they said something that was misunderstood. Receiving an unkind or unreceptive response makes people feel like they aren't free to communicate openly with another person. The result of not sharing these feelings is emotional distance.
By minimizing the fear and increasing the sense that they are in a “safe space,” couples can improve their connection with each other. One benefit of an improved connection and a “safe space” is improved intimacy. Many couples come to counseling with a list of what is wrong. This negative narrative makes it difficult to see what's right. Couples therapy is not all about problem areas; it is also about the couple’s strengths. These strengths can be promoted to build resiliency in the couple's relationship.

Therapy For Couples Includes:


Neurofeedback is a form of neurotherapy that trains your brainwaves to achieve a healthier state – kind of like exercise, but for your brain! Neurofeedback uses EEG technology to measure your brainwave activity and offer you feedback on your performance in real time, through visual and/or auditory cues from videos or games. Neurofeedback has been used to alleviate symptoms for conditions such as PTSD, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, addiction, depression, and more. In addition, it has also been used to improve performance and enhance one’s overall wellbeing.


EMDR stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing. It's a psychotherapy approach that helps people to heal from emotional distress and symptoms resulting from disturbing life experiences. Numerous studies show that EMDR is an effective technique that allows the mind to heal from psychological trauma.  Much like physical healing, for example, when you cut your hand, your body works to close the wound. If something like a splinter or other foreign object blocks the healing, the wound will get worse and cause pain. However, if the block is removed, healing will resume. EMDR offers a similar sequence of events with mental processes. The natural tendency of the brain's information processing system is to move toward healing. If the system is blocked by the impact of a trauma, maladaptive responses are observed. EMDR works to remove the block so processing can resume. 
EMDR was originally developed to help individuals suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). EMDR is also used to treat other mental health conditions, such as anxiety, depression, phobias, and panic disorders. The therapy involves using detailed protocols and procedures to help clients activate their natural healing processes. EMDR aims to help individuals reprocess traumatic memories so that they become less distressing and have less of an impact on their current functioning.

BLAST Technique

The BLAST Technique (Bi-Lateral Analysis and Stimulation Treatment) is a technique that speeds up the process and efficacy of PTSD and trauma for a more efficient experience for the client and therapist by utilizing the brain’s natural processing systems, like the amygdala.
