Couples Counseling

Ashton Jimenez, M.S., LPC-S

EMDR Certified Therapist
Gottman Trained Therapist

Become the couple you always dreamed you could be.

Remember that moment at the beginning of your relationship when you just knew that you were meant to be with your partner. You had a dream and a vision of a life that you could create together and you were ready for it. 

That vision is still possible. I know that can be hard to believe once the internal stressors of the relationship start to wear on you and the external stressors of life start to push in, but you don't have to do it alone. Becoming Counseling is here to help. 

At Becoming Counseling, we know what successful, satisfied couples do to create the relationship of their dreams and we also know what leads couples into relationship patterns and behaviors that take them further away from that vision they had of what a happy, fulfilling relationship would be for them.


You're feeling lost, but there is way to make sense of what is happening in your relationship. Let us guide you to a relationship that allows you and your partner to become the couple you always dreamed you could be. Don't wait- schedule an intake appointment with us now and start re-building the relationship you want today.

We Cater Our Approach to You

At Becoming Counseling, key differences in the couples counseling process make all the difference in outcomes following services. Your relationships may feel out of control, but your counseling experience shouldn't. 





What you can expect in couples counseling: 


        Incorporation of research-based Gottman Method assessments, 

        principles, and techniques into your therapy sessions


        Extended intake sessions scheduled with appropriate time frames

        to allow both partners to develop a relationship with their

        counselor and share their current relationship needs


        Convenient online assessments at the start of counseling with a

        customized report identifying strengths and weaknesses currently

        present in the relationship 

        Utilization of a variety of skill-building resources specific to

        improving couple relationships to meet your relationship's unique

        needs and help ensure you receive services customized to you and

        your partner's challenge areas


        A collaborative relationship with your professional counselor to

        ensure that you and your partner get a say in the areas of the

        relationship you want to prioritize during your time in counseling

Couples Counseling. Individual Counseling. Skill-Building Workshops.

We offer individual and couples therapy services, as well as group workshops for couples.


Couples Counseling. We value a couple spending time in the same counseling space, working on a shared set of goals and learning research-based skills to improve their relationship. Even if you have been unsuccessful at navigating conversations around difficult topics in the past, our highly skilled therapist can provide you the space you need to de-escalate conflict and work on meeting the needs of your relationship. Relationships are not one size fits all and our approach works for couples facing a wide variety of issues. 


Individual Counseling. We also know that at times individuals have a partner who is unwilling to participate in the couples counseling process. It may be a helpful step for the partner who is interested in services to seek out services individually if they feel dissatisfied with their relationship. It is our belief that even one partner changing behavior patterns in the relationship can cause both partners to have to function in new, helpful ways in the relationship.


Couples Workshops. Couples workshops can be a great fit for romantic partners to engage in before starting couples therapy or as an alternative option to couples therapy as they provide time and space for you and your partner to learn research-based relationship skills that romantic partners in the healthiest relationships utilize regularly. Create a shared language for communication in your relationship by joining our next workshop.
