Couples Counseling Services
Relationships don’t have to be so complicated – our Chicago couples counselors work with you to strengthen what connections are already there.
You couldn’t wait to be together. Hours passed like seconds. There was spark. There was chemistry.
You finished each other’s sentences. You were on the same page. There was connection.
Then, something happened. Stress. Money. Time. Kids. Family. In-laws. Just about anything can interfere with that closeness – that partnership you’ve formed. Conflict inevitably rears its ugly head.
Maybe you’ve considered counseling but haven’t dared to bring it up. It’s so difficult. But it doesn’t have to be!
Every couple faces challenges – whether you just started dating or have been married for 20 years or more. It’s important to explore the obstacles that may be interfering with your connection to your partner.
Something’s holding you back.
Seeking couples counseling doesn’t mean your relationship has serious problems or that you’re on the verge of a breakup or separation.
We believe all couples can benefit from counseling to help mitigate stress, conflicts, and other negative factors influencing the relationship.
Conflict is inevitable, but it doesn’t have to hurt your relationship.
Together, you’ll learn how to decrease unnecessary and unhelpful conflict while also incorporating tools and techniques to foster healthy conflict when it does arise.
Our goal is to remind you that you’ll learn how to work together against the issue, not each other.
Everyone has bad habits. As individuals, we’ve all developed patterns over time – not all of them good – that impact our ability to embrace love and affection wholeheartedly. And we bring those individual patterns into our relationships. But couples therapy can help.
Couples therapy provides you with a safe, non-judgmental space to share thoughts and fears openly – a place where you and your partner will hear and be heard to better understand one another. Once we clear away the obstacles, you’ll once again see the partner with whom you fell in love.
You’ll strengthen your mutual trust, respect, and compassion.
You’ll emerge knowing you can handle even the toughest situation – together.

We can help!
Working together, we’ll tailor a variety of tools and approaches specifically to the issues you’re facing with your partner. And we’ll do this in a safe space for you to openly share concerns, discuss obstacles within the relationship, and other concerns which may be having an impact on your growth as an individual and as a couple.
We look forward to helping you and your partner navigate this journey together.
