As a part of our broad and comprehensive range of counseling and therapy services, a unique service we offer couples at Real Connections Counseling is co-counseling therapy. In some cases, it's tremendously beneficial to be able to talk with two counselors at the same time in order to facilitate a balanced therapy session.
PLAY THERAPY FOR COUPLES
Another important program we offer at Real Connections Counseling is play therapy for couples which helps them learn to play again and can help them get to a better place psychologically and emotionally, together as a couple.

Did our pre-marital counseling with them, and felt no judgment whatsoever! We genuinely had a good time learning how to strengthen our relationship. Long review short, highly recommend. Rick and Monique genuinely care for people and it quickly becomes obvious
Jeffrey D Turner
Rick and Monique are very genuine and real people. They have a good sense of others and how to help them and make them feel comfortable. I would recommend them to anyone!
Rick and Monique bring a "full heart press" to their work with those who are experiencing many forms of turmoil. Their passion for counseling shines through everything they do, walking with their clients to bring clarity, understanding and peace. Their life experience adds enormously to their understanding and compassion -- I highly recommend them, both as a couple and individually, for counseling, and to simply explore issues that are "getting in the way" of living a full, rich life.
