My Credentials and Experience as a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Oregon, Washington, and California, with over 14 years of experience providing marriage counseling to couples, struggling with marital distress, history of trauma, infidelity, and attachment injuries.
I earned a Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the California State University of Fullerton and was awarded a Professional Promise Award at the graduation ceremony.
My training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy has greatly influenced my success in helping couples experience deep emotional connection and rebuild a fulfilling and lasting relationship. As Sue Johnson, the creator of this approach said, it provides a practical map that 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 to Know if You Need Marriage Counseling
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 marriage counseling.
At Angel’s Marriage Counseling, 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 miscommunication 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.
Average Length of Marriage Counseling
Usually, couples counseling can help resolve marital problems in 6 to 12 sessions. However, each couple is unique, so the length of marriage counseling can be different for each couple and is based on a couple’s needs.
When the damage to the relationship is severe and/or if one or both partners have a history of past trauma, it may take longer to reverse a negative cycle of miscommunication and disconnection, rebuild a positive pattern of communication and restore emotional and physical intimacy.
When I provide couples counseling, my client is your relationship. Usually, the first two sessions are conducted with both partners. Then I meet with both partners individually for one session. Then I continue future sessions with both partners.
I encourage couples to commit to marriage counseling for at least 6 sessions to achieve positive lasting results. Weekly sessions are proven to be best for creating momentum for positive change.
Couples also report that weekly sessions are effective in helping them break free from a negative miscommunication cycle and rebuild a loving connection.
As progress continues, we can switch to every other week’s sessions to solidify positive interactions and then monthly checks ups to ensure lasting positive results.
