Betrayal, deceit, infidelity, duplicity

When the bedrock of a relationship is threatened, couples find themselves hurt, angry, and alone. Fighting can escalate and there is a lack of emotional and physical connection.

At Rogue River Counseling, we are uniquely equipped to help you heal and rebuild relationships. We partner with individuals to find stability, enter recovery, heal from trauma, and find courage. We work with couples to help them feel safe, build trust, find connection, dare to be vulnerable, and develop emotional intimacy. Our approach of working with individuals and the couple provide a safe and consistent framework for true healing to take place.

“Trauma happens in relationships, so it can only be healed in relationships. Art can’t provide healing. It can be cathartic and therapeutic but a relationship is a three-part journey.”
