As licensed marriage and family therapists we are specifically trained to work with family systems and nurture the complex and myriad relationships within.
Discernment Counseling is a new way for couples to make a wise decision about the future of a relationship. The goals are clarity and confidence, based on a deeper understanding of what has happened and each person’s contributions to the problems. The outcomes are framed in terms of three paths: stay together as is, move towards separation or divorce, or decide to do full-on couples therapy for six months to see if the relationship can heal with a clear agenda for change. Our Discernment Counseling experts are trained to handle the deep complexity of working with couples on the brink, including current affairs, being “out of love,” and couples flip flopping between leaning in and leaning out.
