The Importance of Hope

We often receive calls from people saying things like “Our marriage is hanging by a thread;” or “We just want to be able to say we gave it our best shot before calling it quits.” The discouragement is palpable. Hope for the future of their relationship has all but disappeared.

That’s where we come in. When you’re discouraged, we can help you find new, untried ways to move forward. We’ve been studying relationship dynamics for years, and we have the experience and expertise to help.


Trust is built in small moments, and when broken, it takes small moments to repair. Our Lake Mary relationship therapists use evidence-based strategies to help partners rebuild broken trust so they can reconnect and regain confidence in one another.


Our counselors utilize the most recent research to introduce exercises, concepts, and skills that can change how couples communicate. We can help you communicate better, resolve conflict together, and build a stronger partnership.


Recovering from an affair is difficult but possible. Infidelity can be a cataclysmic event in a relationship but you can work through it with a trained professional by your side. At Positive Steps, our experienced counselors give couples the tools to move forward.


If you feel like the “honeymoon” phase is over, we can help you feel more connected again. Research has uncovered a direct correlation between the “fondness and admiration” we feel and our satisfaction with the romance, passion, and physical intimacy of our relationship. Therapy can provide a safe place to talk about very personal desires, needs, and intimate thoughts.

Research-Based Therapy for Your Marriage

Our counseling is informed by the most recent research available. While much of our work leans on the findings of Drs. John and Julie Gottman, we also draw heavily on the research of thought leaders like Dr. Emily Nagoski, Dr. Janina Fischer, and Dr. Diane Poole Heller.

If you are new to the world of counseling, a lot has happened in the past 20 years. Advances in neuroscience are revolutionizing our understanding of the brain and how it works. And application of those findings by therapists means that life changing results from counseling are within reach more than ever before. At Positive Steps, we are committed to bringing scientifically sound therapeutic methods to our clients.

So whether your relationship seems to be falling apart, or maybe you just want to enrich the relationship have, there is hope. We can help you create change to last a lifetime.

Lake Mary Marriage Counselors

Our qualified Lake Mary marriage counselors begin by seeking a comprehensive understanding of you and your partner. We take the time to delve into the complexities of your relationship, its current state, and the details of your history as a couple. We begin the process by meeting you as a couple and then individually. We also request that every couple completes one or more objective assessments to provide our team with more insight into the dynamics of your relationship.

It is important to remember that therapy takes time. The information gathering process gives us the insights we need to develop a plan, which will be documented and presented to you at the start of your second couples appointment. Our personalized plan of action details your goals, how we will achieve them, and how long it may take before you start to see the results.
