Couples in Crisis – We don’t communicate anymore!
Has infidelity or pornography threatened the secure and loving bond you once had? Has communication been stifled to keep from fighting? Research shows that couples experience six years of marital distress before contacting a marriage counselor, usually a last effort before filing for divorce. I specialize in helping couples make sense of the tension that exists and help to carve a new pathway in working through the issues that keep you from feeling emotionally safe. Together we can restore trust in your relationship. Couples Counseling is a click away. Contact me today to Return to Intimacy. Carolyn Gerard, MFT (858) 756-8171 or contact me here.
Premarital Counseling - The Wedding Lasts a Day, Marriage a Lifetime
Couples marry hoping their love will last forever. Few however, invest the time and energy it takes to keep love growing long after the honeymoon.
Premarital Counseling creates a solid foundation of love, affection and respect for one another while exploring the areas in communication that may be problematic in the future. The program consists of a Premarital Assessment (which is taken on-line in the convenience of your home) and 5 premarital counseling sessions. While practicing effective communication and conflict resolution skills, we address the areas from the assessment that may be problematic in the future. You will learn how to work through issues before they become stumbling blocks to intimacy.
The Premarital Program is $530, a small investment for a lifetime of love. Schedule your appointment today by calling Carolyn Gerard, MFT (858) 756-8171 or contact me here.
Speaker for Your Event
Having a loving and fulfilling relationship is the #1 goal for most Americans greater than financial success. Yet most people don’t know how keep love thriving. They’ve never learned to effectively deal with rejection, hurt, doubts and fears; or assert personal preferences in a way that respects oneself as well as the other person. Relationship skills are learned. We learn early on how to deal with criticism and blame, and how to take care of ourselves when we feel misunderstood. Unfortunately, not all learning is effective.
