About Dr. James Pruett

Over 50 years Working with Couples and Families

Every couple, at times, faces an increasing number of difficult stressors. Life is being lived so fast, with so many complex responsibilities, that relationships can become strained and challenged.

Marriage and Couples Counseling offers fresh eyes–a new perspective. As a therapist, I bring a strong presence, while being attuned to all aspects of relationships; biological, psychological, social, cultural, and spiritual.

I have worked with couples and families to address:

  • Broken communication
  • Inability to make a commitment
  • Infidelity
  • Tension between being a spouse and a parent
  • The experience of having fallen out of love and not knowing how to be in love
  • Balance between caring well for one’s family and being fulfilled professionally as a good employee
  • Unfinished concerns that linger from childhood that make living in the present challenging
  • The dynamic of parenting one’s children while “parenting” one’s parents
  • The fear that an “emotional” divorce has occurred
  • A concern that a young adult’s failure to launch may be signaling something about the marriage

I help relationships and families identify:

  • What leads them to be together
  • Their gifts, strengths, and resiliencies individually and as a couple
  • The content and meaning of their story and how they might
  • seek to rewrite it including specific goals
  • Means of recognizing the “inner therapist” at work in their relationship to help guide their work
  • Resources which might enhance our journey together
  • Means of evaluating our progress together
  • Realization when they have learned what is needed for this season of the journey

I find that mutual respect and working within your life orientation and agenda our best guide.
