Family, Couple, Premartial, Individual Counseling - Anchorage AK - Mercy Dennis, LMFT

Through research, trainings and being in a marital relationship I have been learning a lot about marriages over the past 36 years . I have a pretty good idea about what works best for a satisfying, enjoyable, intimate marriage. The couples that I see who are most successful in their relationship are those couples where both

  • are dedicated and committed to learning about their relationship,

  • are willing to take personal responsibility and be accountable,

  • are able to repair and connect,

  • communicate and share language in a mutually healthy manner,

  • have passion for the relationship,

  • can have a successful conversation about what is going on between the couple

  • are partners in growth

  • trust each other

  • mutually regulate themselves, have good boundaries and self-esteem

  • are able to express appreciations and acknowledgments

  • are able to be interdependent, you not only know what your needs and wants are but you are able to make those needs and wants known in a healthy way

All of these take skills....and practice...practice....practice...and more practice until they become a habit. Many of these skills we did not learn in our family. As adults in our own marital relationship we have the capability to learn relational skills that create a mutually loving environment where both partners will feel cherished..... as we all deserve.

In my work with couples I use Terry Real’s “Relational Life Therapy” model, John and Julie Gottman’s “ Marital Therapy: A Research Based Approach”, and Brent Atkiinson’s “Developing Habits for Relationship Success”. I have had extensive training in these approaches. I also borrow from many other approaches I have studied over the years.
