Couples Counseling


“We keep going round and round with the same conflicts”

“It feels like we’re roommates, not romantic partners.” 

“Our commitments keep us from connecting.”

“Life has thrown a lot our way recently, we’ve drifted apart.”

You love each other, but that doesn’t mean things are always easy.

Maybe it’s day-to-day life that’s gotten in the way lately: between work, kids, and a hectic schedule, you’ve become like passing ships in the night. Or perhaps you’ve faced something in particular: the loss of someone close to you, infertility struggles, or a newly empty nest.

You both want to see this work: to find a way to rekindle the spark you know is there and move into the future as a team. You just need some help to get there.

We’re here to help you with:

  • Conflict resolution
  • Infidelity
  • Sex and intimacy
  • Spousal ADHD
  • Financial issues
  • Grief and loss
  • Parenthood

Couples counseling at CCC means having a safe place to feel heard and understood, practice communication techniques and to walk out the door with a new set of skills to utilize in your daily life. It would be our honor and privilege to join you in your journey towards intimacy and HOPE in your marriage.

Our providers focus a great deal on patterns of relating that keep you stuck in the same conflicts. We highly recommend the book, How We Love (note- spiritual content included) or Attached: The New Science of Adult Attachment and will likely utilize it during sessions or for “homework.”

CCC also believes that communication is key. Techniques such as “I Feel” Messages and active listening ensure the message you are receiving is being accurately perceived.


      • “I’m afraid we will just argue and the therapist will take sides.”  We understand this concern! However, you can rest assured that your therapist isn’t there to act as a “referee” or name a “good” or “bad” person. Instead, we view your relationship as our client—offering support, feedback, and new perspectives to help each of you grow in your understanding of the dynamics at play and the skills needed to interact differently.
      • “Is there anything off limits?” Not at all! The more open you are, the easier we can work with the deeper issues at hand.
      • “What if my partner does not want to come to therapy?” We can certainly work with one partner in the short term, providing skills and guidance on engaging the other partner. A relationship is dynamic; therefore, as soon as we begin making changes individually (and having someone to hold you accountable for your reactions!), there can be a shift in the overall relationship patterns. However, sessions will focus on the goals for the couple only, with the hopes of engaging the other partner when they are ready.
