Lesbian Couples Counseling

“Deep connection can be exhilarating but also a challenge to untangle.”

Empowering Love with Lesbian Couples Counseling

Navigating a lesbian relationship is like riding an emotional rollercoaster—sometimes you’re in sync, and other times, you feel like you’re on different planets. Heightened emotional intelligence, unspoken understanding, and shared experiences can deepen your bond, but they can also amplify sensitivity, turning mood changes into an unpredictable ride. 

Family planning? Well, we’re basically trailblazers, writing our own story without a guidebook, navigating this journey without a GPS.

Sure, relationships are relationships, but let’s discuss the nuances. Intimacy takes on a different form, and the advice out there? Mostly tailored for heterosexual folks. It’s like trying to solve a puzzle with pieces that don’t quite fit. 

And as trailblazers there is that much more that needs to be discussed and defined in regards to expectations and hopes for the future which you guessed it, leaves even more opportunity for us to get our wires crossed and it takes courage bravery and vulnerability to untangle the mess to truly uncover the best way for you to take on this crazy world as a team.

How Counseling can ACTUALLY help?

Couples counseling will help you uncross those wires, slow things down, and really investigate where things went wrong. You will learn tools to deepen your understanding of you and your partners defensiveness which often comes from vulnerability and attachment wounds. Counseling will give you insight into these cycles and equip you with effective strategies to stop the negative cycles in their tracks. You will learn how to replace them with healthier responses that promote healing and connection. 

These strategies will give you the power to create a safe space for you and your partner to address topics that may have been avoided or consistently led to arguments. You won’t be navigating these waters alone anymore; you will have a guide and a personalized roadmap informed by evidence-based approaches.

How it works:

Still feeling a bit uncertain? That is perfectly normal. Let me walk you through what the first few sessions typically look like. 

Session 1 & 2: Let’s Dive In!

  • To kick it off you will both have the opportunity to share your thoughts about the relationship issues. I will challenge you both to reflect on your own contributions to these issues as well because in order for growth to flourish you both have to create a different environment in order to expect different results. 
  • I will ask you both a series of questions designed to quickly gather an overview of the relationship. We will discuss strengths, weaknesses and important elements of your relationship present and past.   
  • We will spend some time talking about each of your upbringings and how communication was handled in your house growing up. Often these early experiences inform of us what a relationship should and shouldn’t be so they are important to understand. 
  • You will participate in a “conflict discussion” in which you pick a topic that holds some tension for you both and you will engage in a discussion about it for 15 to 20 minutes so I can observe how you work through conflict. 

Session 3: Let’s Make a Plan

  • Once I have gathered all this information we will work together to create a personalized action plan to address the goals you are hoping to achieve.

Following Sessions: Getting Traction

  • As we progress, real-life issues will become opportunities to practice your new skills.
  • Once you’ve mastered the basics, we’ll venture into more advanced techniques, empowering both of you to better understand each other and fortify your bond. This journey is about growth and connection, and I’m here to support you every step of the way.

We’re not just here to chat; we’re here to help you take tangible steps toward the joy filled relationship you both deserve.
