"Relationships are about security. Humans require relationships to thrive".

-Kathryn Krug 






Does your relationship need support? 

Is your relationship under pressure?

Do you and your partner find yourselves arguing more than communicating?

Has there been an affair or big betrayal?

The fact is, anything is possible in a relationship. Relationships are made up. They are a concept and it is us who determine what that means. We are so free to be in any relationship we desire but find ourselves so oppressed by the way we interact. Big ideas and expectations do not always lead to desired outcomes. Where do we go when the relationship is burning down and it's an emergency? Where do we go when we have just an inkling, and need help now? Before the relationship ends up in pieces...


Counseling SDC.

Relationship support at every stage. That is our mission. 


What does Relationship Counseling look like?

The first sessions:

Get to know you and your partner / spouse. Identify what is happening and what you can expect from counseling.

Start to define your relationship terms and communicate effectively

Set up a plan together and start incorporating meaningful private time

You will start working together again toward common desires

Counseling SDC Relationship Philosophy 

You would think it would be easy to tell someone you love what you want and need. BUT IT IS NOT. Sometimes, even with the best intentions, we leave things up in the air and don’t communicate as effectively as we would like. We can also demonstrate our worst behaviors without thinking twice when we had no intention of acting that way. Fortunately, relationships are not meant to be stamped out on day one and fit into that mold forever. Relationships are living objects and can become a representation of the effects of our internal wounds. Relationships are constantly growing and renewing to match the needs of its participants and the environment surrounding them. Relationships (including families) should be sources of support, feedback and strength.

At Counseling SDC, we work with you and your partner to identify systemic and cyclical patterns in the relationship. Dive into the mechanics of what is happening and address roots through a tailored approach. Relationship counseling is not about blame and never ending discussions. Counseling is about changing the relationship experience and the feel of interactions. Address things in sessions and directly translate those discoveries into real-world results you can feel. You and your partner are the experts. Counseling SDC is here to make sure however you define your love, you are successful.
