The Couples Counseling Process
Whether you’ve been married four months or forty years; whether you’re thinking about getting married, engaged, or dating seriously; or you’re just trying to figure your relationship out, we often need help.
Dr. Emerson's approach is aimed at helping couples address the core problems unique to their relationship. He offers a comprehensive, collaborative approach that is designed to get beneath the “presenting issues” of the relationship. He looks at the roots of the problems and focuses on the opportunities for healing and transformation through greater relational and spiritual intimacy.
Dr. Emerson works with married and unmarried couples across a wide spectrum. Whether you need help getting “unstuck” or you are looking for better communication skills, recovering from infidelity or addiction, or have significant relational impairment and/or disconnection. Dr Emerson is here to help.
As with many issues, communication is the Process with drives us forward. It is helpful to understand the distinction between process and content. An analogy is to compare the communication process to the vehicle and the content to the passengers who ride within the vehicle. If the vehicle is not functioning well, then the vehicle isn't going to be able to get the passengers to the destination.
The same is true in relationships. So, to have a well-functioning relationship (vehicle), or process, the couple needs assertiveness, reflective listening and problems solving skills. Marriage is a LOVING Business and not a Sole Proprietorship.
