Couple to Couple Counseling Experience
There is absolutely no shame in seeking a little outside help in your relationship. Whether you’re wanting to understand each other a little better, or need a little guidance in approaching common struggles and challenges, couples counseling can offer incredible benefits to both you and your loved one. Elevating Relationships, our online couples counseling practice, is dedicated to working with couples in all stages of their relationships. Utilizing a unique couple to couple counseling approach, we work with couples who are dating, engaged, married, or separated. Created and operated by our husband-and-wife duo, Rashawn and Lori Brewster (both licensed marriage and family therapists). Elevating Relationships is a game changer in couples counseling!
Elevating Relationships is proud to help clients better understand themselves and their spouses and ultimately thrive in their relationship!
Our elite counseling practice understands that there are different perspectives to consult when working through challenges. Each client has their own view on the relationship strengths and the relationship challenges. While many couples may say “we need to work on communication” or “we need to build trust” or “we need to improve our intimacy”, each partner may define the meaning of that statement differently. During your online couple to couple counseling session, our experts, Rashawn and Lori will create space for both perspectives to be heard and understood in a way that is designed to minimize the unhealthy conflict pattern from emerging. After all, research indicates that truly understanding each person’s perspective is one of the first steps needed to reach the desired outcome that both can connect to.
In our sessions, it’s not uncommon for Rashawn or Lori to reframe a message that a client is trying to share in a way that the receiving partner finally understands (and the communicating partner says “YES- that’s what I’ve been trying to say!”). Part of the reason for this is we model the tools that we teach during sessions. We get curious and ask questions aimed at getting to the heart of the conflict. We support the idea that small changes and acts of cooperation can help alleviate some of the stresses and concerns that arise in relationships. During the Elevating Relationships couples counseling sessions, Rashawn and Lori will demonstrate research-based strategies that can be utilized in addressing issues you and your partner are facing. Both therapists have several years’ worth of experience helping couples implement effective tools and techniques. Through our online couple to couple counseling, you will be able to practice and implement solutions to address everything from “fair fighting” to effective communication.
During couple to couple counseling, it’s natural for each significant other to have different expectations or preferences for the relationship based on their own lived experiences. Sometimes that lived experience is influenced by gender roles, culture, religion, tradition, etc. Rashawn and Lori understand it’s possible for certain struggles, annoyances, or concerns to be influenced by gender expectations, biases, or assumptions about how each significant other “should” act, and our couples counseling method is designed to tackle these head-on. As an interracial couple, they have their own experience with navigating culture, race, ethnicity, faith, and other topics within their relationship. And, when relevant, they can offer a male and female perspective as part of their unique approach to working through challenges.
We Live it Too
At Elevating Relationships, we know the love two significant others have for each other is an amazing thing, but also that it can be difficult and devastating in times of struggle. Couples often seek out therapy at some of their worst times- they are hurt, exhausted, and short on hope. Our husband-and-wife team have been together since 2008 and have faced many of the same challenges such as learning to fight fair and communicate effectively. They often joke with their clients that they wouldn’t recognize them if they saw them in their early stages of dating because of how broken their communication cycle was. Rashawn and Lori are passionate about this work- not only because they have experienced the benefits themselves, but they also see it every day with the couples they work with. While both Rashawn and Lori Brewster can provide individualized counseling for clients, as licensed marriage and family therapists, they care deeply about helping couples keep their relationships/marriages strong through
their unique couple to couple counseling.
