Counseling Awareness Month

April is Counseling Awareness Month, which was established as an annual event by the American Counseling Association (ACA) in 2002. This time is set aside to not only honor those professionals who do the work, but to help people understand what counseling is and how it can benefit them.

What Is Relationship Therapy?

Many people attend therapy – not because they’re crazy – but rather to improve their most important relationships. Enhancing relationships and decreasing conflict are generally the focus of Family Therapy and Couples Counseling.

Relationships permeate everything that we do, all that we are and value, and all of our future goals and plans. Relationships are central to our lives, and that alone would qualify them for therapeutic investigation.

But perhaps even more important, relationships are affected by our problems and affect if not cause most of our problems and therefore are a wonderful starting point for therapeutic change.

Many times when we feel dissatisfied or unfulfilled, it’s because we are not living according to our values.

Some of those values are ours and others have been imprinted on us. When we build our awareness of our values and live more in accordance with them, we increase our life satisfaction.

Give Mike a call to help you rediscover your values, create boundaries, and set new goals for your life.

Often times relationships can be very difficult. This could be because they touch upon or even bring up unhealed injuries, and when these injuries inevitably surface, trouble ensues and can wreak havoc in our relationships.

We may want to end the relationship because we think it is causing us pain & discomfort. Unfortunately, we cannot blame this feeling on our partner or the person we perceive that is causing us to experience the uncomfortable feeling.

But there is a solution, heal your issues; do as much inner work as you can.

Running away from the relationship is not the answer; you’ll just have to keep doing the work in another relationship. Sometimes if we just pause and attempt to see things from the other person’s side, as well as our own, things get a little easier.


Matt Morris


The focus of relationship counseling is to help people stop doing what doesn’t work.

Do more of what works; do less of what doesn’t. Learn from the successful parts and moments of your relationship. Be creative. Try something new – almost anything, and you have a chance of changing the patterns.
