When you feel alone in a relationship, it impacts everything in your life. Maybe you don’t feel appreciated, noticed, or just overly criticized. You’re missing “the spark,” you once had. You start to feel more like roommates. Maybe you’re at the point where you just stop fighting and just ignore each other. Maybe you thought everything was going fine, but you just got blindsided.
If you are asking yourself serious questions about staying together or separating, don’t do it alone. Our therapists are here to support you.
Relationships are supposed to be a source of comfort, teamwork, and fun. Being part of a couple means someone in this world has your back. Enjoying being together.
We use counseling exercises to help couples create a new and improved relationship out of any circumstances — from the “unforgivable” infidelity, constant arguing, or just dismissal, and more. Investing time and energy in your relationship is invaluable.
Our therapists know personally and professionally about relationships and the impact they can have on your life (both good and bad!).
“When your relationship is healthy, it frees you up, you feel happier and have more energy to be successful in your career, family, and friendships.”
Investing in your relationship is a gift to yourself and your family. In couples counseling, we aim to help you argue less, feel more heard, understood, valued, and appreciated. If we’re honest, we want you to just have a lot more fun too!

What does the counseling process look like?
The counseling process is designed to help you understand and empower you to live your best life, free of relationship patterns that hold you back. Together, with your therapist, you will learn how to address the things that trigger you. Learn coping skills to do at home with your partner, and individually.
The first session will be approximately 60 minutes. There will be paperwork to complete and questions the therapist will ask to get to know you, your history, and your present situation. The second session (and all remaining will be 50-55 minutes long). In the second session, we use our unique formula for goal-setting. You will get a chance to connect the desires of your goals with your heart and deeper desires in this life. The remainder of the sessions will then be working on skills to tackle your memories and any obstacles in the way of you living your best life.
In order to see lasting results, a commitment to at least 8 weekly sessions is best. We are flexible and can work with different situations. However, to make an impact, it is important to recognize that change of any kind, requires attention and time. After your 8 sessions, you can work with your therapist to determine the next steps (reducing therapy to biweekly/monthly or terminating).
How much does therapy cost?
Counseling is a fee-for-service program. Inspire accepts insurance and offers in-network and out-of-network benefits. We are in-network with BCBS PPO, Humana, Aetna, and United Behavior Healthcare. We recommend at least an 8-week commitment to begin seeing lasting results.
