Your relationship is a mess. You've tried everything you can think of and you now need to bring in help.
It is not pleasant to have marriage or relationship stress. The good news is you’re looking around for someone to help.
Our first job is to figure out the pattern of your problems. There are only a handful of them that every couple does. We then try to quickly get you on board with what we're seeing. Session one ideally!
Neither of us are what you'd call passive therapists. We laugh with you, we humanize what you're going through, and we love when you dislike something we say because it means we can hash it out. It proves to us you are really honest and that we've hopefully earned it. Without honesty, couples therapy dies.
Whether you’re being told to find a counselor, or are the one pursuing help, we hold firmly that there is no good guy/bad guy in a marriage. There are as many marriage styles as there are people, so we're honed in on who you both are and what you want out of your marriage. No boiler plate models or formulas.
We are married and both marriage and family therapists but do not see couples together. Perhaps the most real-world we experience in our marriage is a lot of complex health issues. You will be able to quickly bypass a lot of trying to get a therapist up to speed on what it's like to live with extra issues beyond just what the two of you bring with your personalities.
Elizabeth has a small practice while running The Doherty Relationship Institute. If you wish to learn more about how she views getting unstuck, she's co-founder of ModernCommitment.com which offers a lot of support as well as hundreds of marriage therapists vetted for experience and a values stance that supports marriages with an optimistic belief that two people can put in effort to rescue nearly any marriage damage. There are also many Discernment Counselors on that site with Elizabeth's limited clinical practice.
