You and your partner deserve to be happy, and I am here to help.

Let me help you rediscover love and happiness.

My Credentials and Experience

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 10 years of experience providing marriage counseling to couples, dealing with marital distress, history of trauma, infidelity and other attachment injuries.

I have been successfully applying Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy for 10 years, during which time I have helped many couples heal their relationship, restore trust and rebuild a loving bond so they can feel safe and connected with their partner again.

My training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, provides me with a “practical map for love and loving” that, as Sue Johnson, the creator of this approach said, shows “how to take a relationship that is going down in flames and show couples how to turn it around into … a vibrant, close, loving bond.”

How I Can Help You?

It’s natural to argue or disagree on occasion. But when you fight more than you talk, feel angry and disconnected rather than close and loving, and your relationship becomes more painful rather than happy, it is time to seek help before it gets worse.

Oftentimes, couples consider marriage counseling after months, or even years of pain and hopelessness. Do not wait until the damage to your relationship is irrevocable. Seek marriage counseling now to reverse a negative cycle of disconnection, pain and hopelessness before it is too late.

Do not become the victims to this negative cycle. Do not let it hijack your marriage. Instead of fighting each other, fight together for your marriage with the help of a professional marriage counselor.

At The Couples Counseling Center, I am passionate about helping couples tear the walls of disconnection and discontent down. As a marriage and family therapist I will help you break free from destructive patterns of communication that keep you and your partner feeling disconnected, unappreciated and unloved.

I am wholeheartedly committed to helping you transform your relationship by restoring a positive pattern of communication and rebuilding a sense of safety. Together we will work on helping you reconnect with your partner on a deeper level and rebuild the bond that will last a lifetime.

What to Expect From Couples Counseling

My training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy has greatly influenced my success in helping couples experience deep emotional connection, fall in love with each other again and rebuild a fulfilling and lasting relationship.

Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) is one of the most effective approaches that successfully addresses marital distress, infidelity, and history of trauma in a relationship.

Research has shown that 90% of couples experience significant improvement in the quality of their relationship after about 10-20 sessions with an EFT therapist, and couples continue maintaining progress two years after finishing marriage therapy. They report having fewer conflicts, feel more connected and are communicating with each other in a more positive and effective way.

I offer once a week couples counseling at Angel’s therapy office at 1901 Broadway St. Suite 104, Vancouver WA 98663. The couples counseling office is located in downtown Vancouver and about ten minutes away from Portland.

Average Length of Marriage Counseling

My mission is to provide professional marriage counseling to help you improve the quality of your relationship and and rebuild a loving bond. Usually the average length of couples counseling is about 6-12 sessions.

However, each couple is unique, so the length of marriage counseling can be different for each couple. I ask couples to commit to marriage counseling for 8 sessions once a week to achieve positive lasting results.

The pain of unresolved conflicts and past trauma do not have to affect you forever!

Let me help you get back the relationship where you feel safe, loved and connected with your partner again.
