The Role 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.
The most recent research available underscores all of our counseling. While much of our work is informed by the findings of Drs. John and Julie Gottman, we also lean heavily on the research of thought leaders like Dr. Sue Johnson, Dr. Janina Fischer, and Dr. Diane Poole Heller.
If you are new to counseling, a lot has happened to therapy in the past 20 years. Advances in neuroscience are revolutionizing our understanding of the brain and how it works. And, as therapists, we have been able to take that body of knowledge and apply it to real-life situations in a way that brings therapeutic results like never before. At Positive Steps, you have our commitment to bring the best, most-proven science to our counseling.
So whether you feel like you or your partner already has one foot out the door, or you just want to improve the life you have together, there is hope. We can help you create change to endure a lifetime.

Maitland Marriage Counselors
Our Maitland marriage counselors begin with an in-depth interview, getting an understanding of you and your partner. We start by meeting you together as a couple and then individually. We then ask you to complete one or more objective assessments that will provide insight into the dynamics of your relationship that are not easily accessible through discussion.
To be effective, therapy takes time. The information gathering process gives us the insights we need to develop a plan, which will be documented and provided to you at the start of your second couples appointment. Our plan details your goals, how you will achieve them, and how long it may take to see results.
