Let’s face it, relationships can be tough, and all couples face disagreement at some point or another. So you may ask yourself, “how do I know when it’s time?” The sooner you and your partner agree to seek couples counseling, the better the chances are of working out relationship issues.
Couples therapy may be the perfect place to start mending and healing the disconnections you have been feeling in your relationship.
Couples communication issues affect all types of relationships. Whether they are new or matured, no matter the sexual preference, nor how many people are in the relationship. It is perfectly common for relationships to reach a point where it's best to seek a therapist to help you navigate a problem.
Hi! I'm Rachel Smith
You Deserve To Experience Love, Connection & Fulfillment In Your Relationship.
Infinite Intimacy aims to help you reconnect with yourself and your partner. Our therapeutic services can help you redevelop mutual understanding, love and respect for each other, while also expelling anxieties and insecurities that have lingered or evolved over time. Through this process, clients establish more frequent and enhanced intimate moments within the relationship, while developing a stronger, more cohesive connection.
Who is couples counseling for?
If you’re looking to fix marriage problems, save a marriage, or discuss separation and divorce, we can work to create a collaborative environment where all parties feel safe and heard. But marital counseling is not just for married couples. Counseling is for any couple looking to develop a deeper connection, create more intimacy, and better communication.
What to Expect
During our sessions, I will ask you to describe the main problems you are experiencing, and what causes most of your stress within the relationship. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), I can help you gain insight into your relationship, guide you and your partner to resolve conflict, and work to improve relationship satisfaction.

A note to parents
Studies show that the most resilient children and families stem from couples who have a solid foundation of unconditional love and support, with mutual respect for themselves and each other, while also demonstrating an ability to be flexible through different stages of family life. When you are on the same page as your significant other, and you are working together as a team, you can better navigate through challenges as they arise. If the level of frustration and tension within the relationship tends to rise in response to consistent arguments and heated disagreements, children can often sense these strains and pressures within the marriage and they sometimes respond by acting out in a disruptive or anxious way, which you may see now or later on into their adult lives.
Your family’s quality of life starts with the quality of the parental unit.
Taking care of each other’s needs - mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically - are essential to maintaining a happy and healthy marital relationship, and these types of positive relationships have been proven to strengthen children’s school performance and peer relationships. Not only does a healthy and happy marriage improve a child’s emotional intelligence, it is also important to consider that you and your partner are the role-models for your children and their future relationships.
“If all you do is preserve the family and let the couple go, ultimately there may not be a family.”
