In relationships, people encounter many obstacles that require work to overcome. Challenges can be small or large, ranging from intimacy issues, financial concerns, to parenting conflicts and other stressors that threaten the foundation on which the relationship is built. By seeking counseling and therapy for relationship issues, both partners are making an effort to put their relationship front and center. If left untreated, the relationship could become toxic and unhealthy. Exploring issues in a neutral setting with one of our clinicians guiding the conversation helps discover where the problem is, how it developed and with customized treatment plan, how to get the relationship back on track.


Premarital counseling, or proactive couples therapy, can be an integral step in building a strong, healthy relationship and ensuring a satisfying marriage. By investing in your marriage before it officially begins, couples can take an approach of prevention instead of intervention. During premarital counseling, our clinicians help couples understand each other better, set realistic goals for marriage and identify weaknesses that could threaten their relationship. Most importantly, taking this proactive approach in your relationship can strengthen your ability to handle conflict as well as improve your communication skills as a couple, which are vital components of a healthy marriage.

Proactive couples therapy at Modern Intimacy may include a discussion of expectations within the following marital topics: finances, beliefs/values, sex, desire to have children, family relationships and roles in marriage. Our clinicians are compassionate and highly skilled when it comes to helping couples proactively build their relationship before marriage. Premarital counseling also gives couples a positive viewpoint about seeking therapy in the future if help is needed.

Whether you are searching for happiness under those pesky relationship issues or you want to take a proactive approach in your relationship with premarital counseling, you can lean on the therapists at Modern Intimacy. Relationships require work and we’re here to help.


Codependence typically affects adults but stems from childhood trauma. Discovering and acknowledging the root of the behavior is crucial in establishing a treatment and therapy plan that will lead to overcoming it. During treatment sessions, therapists will help address emotional wounds and the underlying issues that are buried deep in the subconscious. In doing so, healing can start from the very beginning. Once it’s known what fuels codependent behaviors, it’s easier to provide a treatment plan for those specific issues. The goal is to provide clarity, develop resilience and self-confidence while establishing healthy coping skills going forward.


It’s not uncommon for codependent behaviors to accompany substance abuse or addictions, your or that of a loved one. During treatment, these issues are addressed in hopes of working towards a self-sufficient lifestyle without the aid of drugs, alcohol or unhealthy relationships. Therapy sessions and treatment plans are created and catered toward individual patients to ensure everyone receives care specific to their own needs. Codependence sometimes reveals itself through mistrust, denial and low self-esteem. Our therapists are with patients every step of the way. Codependence is a behavior that can be treated successfully with an encouragingly high recovery rate.


Betrayal Trauma occurs when someone we are deeply attached to or depend on violates our trust in an intimate way. This can be in the form of infidelity, sexual abuse, sexual addiction or other behaviors. Victims of infidelity or sexual betrayal can experience a significant amount of loss. Not only can the violation of trust impact the way you feel about yourself, but it can also threaten your sense of sexuality and physical safety. In fact, many partners lose sight of reality and suddenly find it difficult to make sense of their life and their marriage.

The discovery of betrayal is a traumatic and painful event. Feelings can range from deep hurt and disappointment to anger, rage and defiance. While your partner has a responsibility to get help for his or her behaviors, you can also benefit from professional counseling to overcome the crisis of betrayal trauma. At Modern Intimacy, we can help you navigate the feelings you are left with after betrayal trauma, helping you regain lost reality and restore a secure identity for yourself.
