I enjoy working with couples because you both bring the relationship into the room. My job is NOT to be Judge Yost and tell you who is really right or wrong. My goal is to help the relationship improve. Sometimes there is a skill deficit like communication, problem solving or fair fighting. Other times the problem is that you are stuck on an issue like parenting, money, sex, or in-laws.
See the FAQs for more detailed information on how I work with couples.
