Couples Counseling

Couples Therapy for Couples that Have Given Up

Your relationship is caught in an endless cycle of negativity and you feel unhappy, unheard and full of anger and confusion. Arguments and disagreements seem unresolvable so you both retreat into silence.

You are Living Like Roommates

Days go by with only minimal communication. Conversations between the two of you are only about superficial items, deeper issues are avoided because solving them seems insurmountable. Even small silly things, like somebody not picking up the dog poop can turn into an argument, which then leads to more silence..

You and your partner can’t seem to engage, like you used to. You realize that marriage is hard but this seems overwhelmingly difficult. You wonder what is causing all these problems but you don’t even know where to begin.

You Need Change or Your Relationship Is Over

Lately, you have been even thinking about how life might be easier if you were apart, but actually you really just want to connect. You want to really talk again, have fun, make plans and find joy in each other.

My name is Suzanne and I work with relationships just like yours using Gottman Therapy Techniques

I provide help and guidance to partners who feel disconnected and unhappy and who may have retreated into silence because they don’t know what else to do. I will help you sort out what is happening in a compassionate and understanding way, and you will never feel shamed or slighted. I have a bit of a dry sense of humor, and love to laugh and have everybody feel at ease. Our sessions will have movement, and purpose and you should start to notice change quickly. I will use interventions that I have learned in my 17 years as a therapist to help you reconnect again.

With marriage counseling you and your partner will listen to each other and feel heard. You will communicate about things that really matter. You can talk about the problems you are having and start looking for ways to make change. You and your loved one will start to talk more. Laugh together. Start doing things together. Connect again.

If you are ready to move away from silence and disconnection to laughter and connection please either call me at 208 321-5538] or email us at to discover how relationship therapy can help you and your partner connect again.
