Desiree St. Pierre, Scheduler & Administrative Assistant
"My husband and I were struggling with many little things and we would constantly battle about money, parenting, what's for dinner, chores, etc. What we couldn't talk about was sex. We weren't intimate anymore and we were both lonely and angry. We learned from the workshop that it’s not trying to figure out who was right or who was wrong but if we reached deep inside we'd see our core feelings. We learned that if we really understood the root emotion we could avoid the triggers that caused our vicious spiral! My husband and I after 15 years of marriage got to know each other in a new way and stopped our attack mode. We still have a lot of processing to do to break our "habit" but we are encouraged. We feel more playful as lovers now too. Thank you to Anne, and the staff for giving us hope!"
You had it before. You can get it back. The relationship you want is within reach.
We understand how important your relationship is to you. Whether you’re looking for couples therapy, individual work or a couples intensive retreat, the Wellness Counseling Center professionals are prepared to support you. This is not just about staying together or staying married. It’s about your whole life because when your relationship works, everything else seems to work, too. When you feel connected to your partner, it feels as if you can do anything! When you are disconnected, you are likely to feel depleted, distracted and exhausted. Emotional disconnection creates internal chaos and takes up so much time and energy! But when you are connected with your partner, even when life may not be perfect and in times of stress, life seems to flow easily.
