Services Offered

Couples Counseling >>


In her work with distressed couples, Dr. Jen Staat has found that our marriages and intimate relationships are only as happy, healthy, and content as we are. Relationships have many lessons to teach and give us an opportunity to learn about ourselves. If we walk away, the lessons are likely to show up in our next relationship until we take time to figure out what is going on.
