Couples counseling helps couples recognize and resolve conflicts and improve their relationships. Through couples counseling, you can make thoughtful decisions about rebuilding your relationship or, in some cases, going your separate ways.

Couples counseling can help couples in all types of intimate relationships — heterosexual or homosexual, married or not.

Some couples seek counseling to strengthen their bonds and gain a better understanding of each other. Couples counseling can also help couples who plan to get married. This pre-marriage counseling can help couples achieve a deeper understanding of each other and iron out differences before marriage.

In other cases, couples seek counseling counseling to improve a troubled relationship. Dr. Christine Dickson can work with couples on:
  • Communication problems
  • Sexual difficulties
  • Conflicts about child rearing or blended families
  • Substance abuse
  • Financial problems
  • Anger
  • Infidelity
  • Divorce
Couples counseling is often short term and typically includes both partners. However, Dr. Christine Dickson may sometimes ask one partner to work with her alone. The overall goal of couples counseling is to help you and your partner find ways to enjoy a happier, healthier life.
