What Happened to the Relationship?

Have you ever encountered difficulties in your relationships, leaving you feeling disconnected or stuck? Relationship problems can be influenced by various factors, including communication breakdown, unmet emotional needs, and unresolved conflicts. Differences in values, life goals, or parenting styles may also create tension in relationships. Stress from external sources, such as work or financial pressures, can spill over into relationships and affect intimacy and connection. Additionally, past relationship patterns and family dynamics may impact the way individuals approach and experience their current relationships. Relationship coaches can help individuals identify these underlying causes, develop effective communication skills, and foster emotional intelligence, allowing them to nurture healthier and more fulfilling relationships.


Common relationship problems that a coach can help with:

  • Communication breakdown and conflicts

  • Lack of emotional intimacy and connection

  • Trust issues and infidelity

  • Balancing individual needs within the relationship

  • Managing time and shared responsibilities

  • Coping with life changes and transitions as a couple

  • Parenting challenges and co-parenting strategies

  • Resolving unresolved past issues and resentment

  • Reinforcing relationship goals and shared vision

  • Rekindling romance and maintaining passion

Relationship Coaching for Singles or Individuals

Relationships are often the most important area of our life that drives everything else. Therefore, relationship coaching can provide significant value. It's important to note that relationship coaching may not be suitable for all situations. In cases of abuse, severe emotional distress, or mental health issues, professional counseling or therapy may be more appropriate. In the case of infidelity, a coach can offer practical guidance and create the structure for rebuilding trust in the case of infidelity. Otherwise, coaching can help couples improve their communication, develop conflict resolution strategies, reignite or deepen intimacy between partners, explore ways to enhance your romantic and sexual relationship, clarify your personal and shared goals and aspirations, help you to align your visions to create a mutually fulfilling future, prepare for family transitions, and identify areas to improve your overall relationship satisfaction.

Relationship coaching can be the catalyst for positive change and growth. Whether it's communication issues, trust and intimacy concerns, or navigating major life transitions together, a coach can provide valuable tools and techniques to foster understanding and connection. Through improved communication and emotional awareness, you can build stronger, more fulfilling relationships.

  • 1. What is psychotherapy?
    Psychotherapy, also known as talk therapy or counseling, is a collaborative process between a trained therapist and an individual seeking support. It aims to explore thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and experiences to promote personal growth, emotional well-being, and address specific concerns. Psychotherapy encompasses various approaches, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, psychodynamic therapy, and humanistic therapy, tailored to meet the individual's needs.
  • 2. How long does psychotherapy last?
    The duration of psychotherapy varies depending on several factors, including the individual's goals, the complexity of their concerns, and their progress throughout the therapeutic process. Some individuals may benefit from short-term therapy, consisting of a few sessions or weeks, to address specific issues or provide immediate support. Long-term therapy may span several months or years, focusing on deeper exploration and ongoing personal development. The therapist and individual collaborate to determine the appropriate duration of therapy based on their unique circumstances.
  • 3. How do I find the right therapist for me?
    Finding the right therapist involves considering several factors. It's important to seek a licensed and qualified therapist with expertise in the specific concerns you want to address. You can ask for recommendations from trusted sources, such as healthcare professionals or friends who have had positive experiences with therapy. Online directories and therapist matching platforms can also help you find therapists in your area. Additionally, it's crucial to feel comfortable and have a good rapport with your therapist, so scheduling an initial consultation or phone call to assess the fit is recommended.
  • 4. Do you accept insurance?
    For mental health issues, we accept Blue Cross Blue Shield and affiliates (CareFirst, Anthem, BCBS Federal Employee Program, etc.) and Cigna or Evernorth. HOWEVER, please note that to qualify for insurance benefits, therapy must be related to a mental health diagnosis, like anxiety, depression, PTSD, etc., that has medical necessity. Most insurance plans do not cover relationship or sexual issues. Yes, it is sad considering that these are often the primary drivers for mental health issues. Please do not ask us to bill your insurance for relationship or sexual issues without first contacting your insurance company to check to see if your plan covers it. (We don't want to keep asking them.) Also, we cannot make up a diagnosis either, as this is insurance fraud and can cost us our license and result in serious penalties. Plus, insurance companies occasionally audit psychotherapy notes to ensure that treatment is related to the reported diagnosis. You can always choose to skip insurance and pay for therapy out of pocket. This will maximize your privacy and widen your pool of therapists. Thank you for your understanding.
  • 5. Is psychotherapy confidential?
    Confidentiality is a fundamental principle in psychotherapy. Therapists are legally and ethically bound to maintain the privacy and confidentiality of the information shared during therapy sessions. However, there are a few exceptions to confidentiality, such as when there is a risk of harm to oneself or others, child or elder abuse, or when a court order requires the disclosure of information. Your therapist should explain their confidentiality policy and any exceptions during the initial sessions.


“Dr. Thomas Luttrell was a compassionate coach and asked me probing questions which allowed me to go deeper into my situation and explore other depths to my issue I was not aware of. I could tell he was listening well and challenged me in the ways I needed to be challenged. I definitely had some breakthrough in our session and am grateful for the experience.”
