About us… The healing journey
Ron and Theresa each have over 35 years of experience as counselors, educators, supervisors, and consultants in the field of mental health and counseling. We are licensed clinical social workers. Ron served as a Marine Corps officer for 23 years before entering the mental health field. Our work as family therapists inspired us into the area of counseling couples and specializing in helping couples form strong loving partnerships. We strongly believe that love relationships are foundational in helping our world find harmony and we are dedicated to helping couples find ways to having the most fulfilling relationships possible.
We are trained and certified in many methods and utilize the ideas of Imago Relationship theory, proven methods of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, and the research of John Gottman, and many other leaders in the field of relationship counseling. We incorporate many approaches in working with couples and help people to recognize the influence of early life experiences and how early adaptations and defensive behaviors affect current relationship interactions. We help couples have healing experiences dealing with here and now relationship issues. Our work focuses on helping couples to learn, understand, share, and experience the relationship as an emotionally connecting interface. We assist and coach people in learning skills for effective communication that facilitate safety in dealing with difficult conversations. Our goal is to help you obtain safety, better trust and healing in your relationship connections.
We have spent countless hours studying, applying and experiencing the dynamics of practices that are effective in helping couples. We have been fortunate to personally consult and train with leaders in the relationship counseling field. We feel privileged and excited to offer the culmination of our experiences to assist couples in discovering their own solutions for finding the healing journey of connection and love.
Lastly, but not least we bring our own knowledge and relationship experiences of learning to live and love each other from being together over 30 years in relationship. We have shared the ups and downs of relationship and parenting our four sons. We have been able to apply what we know about relationships and share our discoveries and experiences with you. We always count it a privilege to share our relationship knowledge and work to co-create with our clients lasting and effective relationships.
