Finally, therapy that focuses on solutions, not problems

Why Marriage & Family Therapy Works

  • Over 97% of clients treated by marriage & family therapists are highly satisfied with the help they received.
  • Over 98% rated their marriage & family therapy services as “good” or “excellent.”
  • Research shows that most patients only require 4-12 sessions. Of course, the number of sessions required varies from case to case; however, marriage family therapy tends to be briefer than many other types of therapy.

Because life shouldn’t be put on hold.

For many people, emotional scars left from prior relationships, and negative or unrealistic beliefs about themselves, can interfere with present-day relationships. But no amount of talking, reviewing, or remembering why something happened seems to help resolve the pain.

Is conflict ruining your relationship?

We view relationship problems as an opportunity to build more satisfying unions between partners. First, we strive to help the couple completely understand each other on important issues such as money, household responsibilities, parenting, time spent together, and intimacy. Next, we focus on strengthening patterns that work or have worked in the past. Also, we encourage each partner to be committed to his or her own growth to make the relationship work.

Our methods help:

  • Determine joint goals
  • Achieve honest, respectful two-way communication
  • Find “win-win” solutions
  • Move beyond power struggles
  • Balance individual, couple & family needs
  • Understand relationship patterns
  • Strengthen patterns that work
  • Reduce patterns that do not work
  • Anger management
  • Deal with Intimacy issues

Therapy needn’t be an endless journey, but a brief renewal on the journey through life

We have found that much can be accomplished in therapy by focusing on the present – the here and now – where change can occur. We view a client’s work with a therapist as an opportunity to define goals, to reevaluate perceptions of problems and to reconsider responses to difficult people or situations in order to make positive changes as quickly as possible. That’s our promise to you.

Marriage and family therapy isn’t just for couples

“No matter how difficult the problem, each person has the resources within to change and achieve growth …
I will help you build and repair your relationships by developing “win-win” solutions, teaching communication skills, and converting your relationship anger to a productive force.”

- Paulette Trueblood, M.A.

We frequently work with individuals. It is not necessary for both partners to be present during therapy for a relationship to improve.

  • Communication Training
