Counseling for Couples and Families

Sara Phillips, MS, LCMFT

Marriage Counseling
Marriage counseling can help you establish a stable and satisfying relationship with your spouse and create lasting change. 

Whatever you are struggling with in your marriage, from drifting apart or dealing with recurring conflict to infidelity and separation, marriage counseling can help you communicate effectively with your partner, learn new ways of interacting, and reconnect. 

As a licensed clinical marriage and family therapist, I would like to help you to restore intimacy, rebuild trust, and experience closeness with your partner.  You can move from isolation to connection.


What if my spouse is hesitant to come to therapy?

Avoid blaming or threatening your partner. Let him or her know that the issues you want to address in therapy are not about assigning blame but about improving your relationship. Try to help your spouse understand that you are seeking solutions that work for both of you.

If your partner decides not to attend therapy, you may still benefit from coming to therapy on your own, and we can make a plan together about possible ways to involve your partner. 


When should I seek
marriage counseling?

Some signs that you may want to seek marriage counseling include:

  • When conversations with your partner consistently turn into silence, disrespect, defensiveness, or anger.
  • If you feel distant from your partner and can't seem to reconnect.
  • If you constantly find yourself arguing about the same issues.
  • If you feel you need more support and understanding from your partner.
  • If you are considering ending your relationship.
Please call or email me to set up an appointment or to discuss if marriage counseling is a good option to help you and your partner meet your goals.
