Couples Communication

Helping you improve the way that you communicate as a Couple

Poor communication contributes to anger, resistance and sadness in a relationship. I'm here to help you with that.

Dona Laressa Desmond, PhD, LMFT

Couples Therapy, PreMarital and Marriage Counseling

Helping you communicate and solve problems

Couples communication is the connective tissue that holds

love together, bridges the gaps between you and creates

the emotional climate of your relationship. Love brings us the desire to be close but sometimes it's the communication that fails. Differences surface. What should be easy becomes confusing and difficult. I understand what that feels like and I can help you.

When love is out of sync or caught in destructive patterns it disturbs everything else in your life.

As a Therapist I can say that Couples Therapy isn't magic, but most issues between Couples can be resolved by improving your communication and learning some new ways to solve problems together. Both Marriage Counseling and Couples Therapy can help you discard what doesn't work upgrading your communication as a Couple.

During our sessions together I will listen to your point of view and help you understand what needs to happen for things to improve. I will show you how to communicate better in your relationship and I will base that on your individual uniqueness as a Couple.

I am at my best when designing positive outcomes for Couples

As your Counselor my style is to understand and honor your emotions while keeping you both moving forward toward solutions. Once you become a client of mine I will dedicate considerable experience, insight and energy to help you attain your relationship goals.

Email is the best way to reach me

I look forward to hearing from you.

Warm regards,

Dona Laressa Desmond PhD
