4 Tips for Keeping a Relationship Happy, Katie Lemieux, LMFT

The Five Love Languages

Couples Counseling will teach you how to better understand and communicate with your significant other.  I am able to work with couples that speak Spanish and enjoy working with the Hispanic population.  I love to help couples work on intimacy and begin reconnecting on a deeper level.  Couples can see progress within a few sessions but couples counseling depends on you.  There is going to be work outside of the sessions, including homework, going on dates, practicing intimacy and putting the skills into place that you learned in your sessions.

If you have children, just know that you are not alone.  One of the biggest factors with the couples that I work with is having small children.  Being parents adds an additional layer onto your relationship and I can help you achieve balance within your marriage and parenting duties.  I am your go to therapist for couples counseling in Pembroke Pines, Florida.
