As a professional counselor and marriage and family therapist in Austin, I work with individuals, couples, and families. My primary focus is as a couples counselor and marriage therapist. Most of my work with individuals is around past trauma that gets in the way of being able to be fully present and engaged in ones relationship.
I have advanced training in John Gottman’s approach to marriage therapy and couples counseling and teach the habits of successful relationships to couples in my office in Austin.
At Karen Furey Counseling in Austin, the goal in Gottman Method Couples Therapy is to help couples have the conversations they have not been able to have. I help couples create deep changes in their relationship, renew their friendship, and have productive conflict conversations, that result in a greater sense of intimacy and connection.
I also have advanced training in working with couples who are in recovery. My approach, based on John Gottmans Couples Counseling is a relational approach that includes both partners whether both or just one are in recovery. If you need support navigating the relationship changes that occur in early sobriety, call me, I can help.
