Couples and Marriage Counseling
Couples Counseling in my Denver Practice:
In our culture, we do not have formal education on relationships, communication, or parenting. Couples often do not have the tools on how to relate to each other and parent children.
Many problems in relationships stem from inexperience or difficulty with conflict. Family history has taught each partner different ways or rules of relating and dealing with conflict. For example, one partner's family may have yelled to resolve issues, while the other's family avoided conflict entirely. Each partner expects the other to automatically abide by these unspoken rules.
In relationship, each person brings his or her own expectations and roles, often believing that these should be understood and accepted. Couples counseling often starts with having the couple identify and establish mutually agreeable, new "rules of engagement", communication, and understanding their partner's temperament, expectations, and personality.
Together we talk about each partner's vision of relationships and identify personal goals. What is important in couples therapy is to bring partners together, so they can grow and become allies rather than become alienated from one another. We work on issues of acceptance, intimacy, and sexuality, so that the couple understands and tolerates the relational mine-fields.

Silence about sexual issues is the great killer of relationships. It is common for people to encounter sexual problems, at any age. Women may experience arousal and orgasm difficulties, low sex drive, or pain during intercourse, while men may struggle with erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, and low libido. What is uncommon is for people to speak and do something about those problems before they irreparably damage their self-esteem and relationships. To learn more about Sex Therapy options, click here.

The causes of your distress may be immediate or rooted in your history. It may be difficult to tell the difference between the source of your stress, anxiety, grief, or discomfort, and your current struggles. You may even try to correct the wrong problems. You may suppress, avoid, or even self-medicate trauma with compulsive behaviors or addiction. There is HELP and HOPE for current or past trauma, PTSD, and abuse!
