Conflicts in relationships are rarely about the issues, but stem from how couples or partners talk about the issues. In marriage, relationship, and business counseling sessions we actively work with you to learn new ways to communicate by focusing our efforts on the detection of repetitive patterns that create unresolved problems in any relationship. With the application of these skills, couples can talk successfully about anything, leading to a more lasting and fulfilling relationship.

About Relationship Resources
A number of therapists do marriage counseling, but very few are trained in it, and even fewer exclusively see couples in their practice.
Dr. Richard Rein, Ph.D. is the founder of Relationship Resources and co-founder of the Center for Integrative Counseling and Wellness. He is a licensed psychologist, certified Gottman method couples therapist, and marriage counseling expert. Dr. Rein has written a book that guides couples on developing skills and strategies to renew their relationships.
Relationship Resources’ counseling methods are based on training with Dr. John Gottman, the top marriage counselor and researcher in the country. Dr. Rein has shared these methods with thousands of couples and taught to many other couples’ therapists.
Throughout three decades of practice, Relationship Resources has provided research driven, specialized counseling for couples and partners.
Relationship Resources’ counseling approach is based on the science of communication. We work with you to identify repetitive patterns and detect intricate subtleties that create communication setbacks and unresolved problems in marriages and relationships.
Our method is what differentiates us from other therapists and has been very successful in improving and saving troubled relationships.
Successful Communication Techniques
From the start, couples receive a manual written by Dr. Rein that summarizes the research on how successful couples communicate.
Feedback and Guidance
Together we change how you communicate in sessions, receiving lots of feedback and guidance.
Restore and Rebuild
If your previous conversations escalated or even stopped occurring, new ways of communicating will restore friendship and rebuild emotional connection.

Relationship Resources Blog Posts
Each day my life is enriched by listening to and guiding couples as they bring their raw experiences to sessions and we try to make sense of difficult times. Through these blog posts, I hope to give readers a snapshot of our work including examples of the real issues that people bring, and how we can find meaning and a path out together. Their identities will be protected, but each experience is real. Because relationships are complex, my role is to help couples share their experiences while providing a conceptual road map to understand their experiences, finding a way out of the woods of painful experiences. The blog will share stories and concepts; I hope it provides hope, insight and richness to each reader’s own journey.
