Let’s Get to the Heart of the Matter

COUPLES THERAPY

You still care deeply about your significant other, but perhaps your relationship is a bit of a mess at the moment. Maybe your communication is off and conflict has taken a toll. At any given time, you are either putting a lot of energy into avoiding conflict or in the middle of an exhausting heated exchange. Maybe there are trust issues and you worry your relationship won’t survive.

Relationships can be extremely complex and it is understandable that they can be so challenging at times. Each person has their own past experiences and distinct family of origin issues. In addition, your needs and expectations of the relationship may be different from your partner’s. This can lead to the feeling that your relationship is little more than a series painful interactions and missed connections.

We have seen couples overcome incredible challenges and make their relationship everything they hoped it would be. It’s possible to create a powerful connection and learn to have a happy and meaningful life together.

You can reconnect.

Trauma & PTSD Therapy

You have emotional pain from the past that’s getting in the way. Showing up fully to work, school, or relationships is challenging, because your mind is far from present. Maybe you’re filled with anxiety, panic, and fear, and you’re confused, overwhelmed, and exhausted from the roller coaster ride of emotions.

Your friends and family try their best to support you, but they just don’t know what to do to help. The symptoms of emotional pain or trauma can seep into every aspect of your life, leaving you depressed, anxious, helpless, and sometimes even hopeless.

If you feel like the effects of emotional pain or a traumatic experience are taking over your life, rest assured, there is hope. We can help you reclaim your life!

Heart of the Matter Founder Message

I founded The Heart of the Matter Relationship Counseling on the guiding belief that with the proper support, encouragement, counseling, and education everyone is capable of having the relationship they truly desire and deserve.

I believe that every couple is capable of co-creating a warm, caring, joyous, loving, affectionate, intimate, lasting, and sexually fulfilling relationship.

I also believe that it is possible for couples to work through even the most challenging issues while maintaining a sense of dignity, compassion, and respect. This is my highest hope for you and your relationship.
