Our Approach


Mission Statement

Our mission at South Florida Couples Counseling is to help couples repair, strengthen and invigorate their relationship through proven, evidence-based therapies.

This involves teaching couples how to safely and directly communicate their needs, with particular attention toward healthy resolution of core make-or-break issues that lead to avoidance, stagnation, complacency, anger, conflict, and/or resentment.

The end goal is shared meaning and greater emotional and physical intimacy for a balanced and healthy relationship in the years ahead.


what is Couples Counseling?

Couples counseling is about healing, repairing, and rebuilding your relationship with your spouse or partner. It consists of an exploration of the meaning and value that each partner brings to the relationship, as well as expectations placed on each other and the relationship.
