About  Marcia Harms

There is a reason the two of you became a couple in the first place, just as there is a reason right now you are looking for premarital counseling, marriage counseling, or couples counseling. There was a time when the love was strong and that the two of you held significant meaning to one another.

If you are having difficulty in your marriage, committed relationship or the specific challenges of mid-life marriage, i.e the anguish of life stressors, financial difficulties, infidelity or seemingly irresolvable differences, I can work with you both to navigate these difficult times.

Couples counseling becomes a reality for many only when they have reached a crisis point. The problem now, however, is that so much water has passed under the bridge, you don’t know where to begin.

My approach is both pluralistic and pragmatic because I believe that there are many ways to heal a marriage. It is in the collaboration between the partners where the healing can begin.  Attachment issues from your own childhood has been proven to affect marriages today.   I have unique way to address this in a helpful and loving manner.  It is hard work.  So many couples lose their humor along the way when challenges of life intervene in the love once shared.  

I like to include as much neuroscience as I can interject to help clients to understand the change in the chemistry of the relationship as it grows and matures.   That has proven to be a major catalyst to healing once it enters your awareness.

My multiple years of running parenting groups and expertise in parenting and family systems are helpful in guiding couples onto a more structured path as they manage those issues. It further helps secure their marriage when the couple has a family and they deal with the complications of that larger family system.

I have presented on reconstituted families. Remarriages can present many additional complications that make the merger difficult. Providing these marriages additional information is essential and can ward off entering a new situation more successful.

Feel free to visit my website to learn more about me. You are welcome to e-mail me using the contact form or by calling my office directly. I look forward to hearing from you. I am here to help and give support.

My office overlooks wonderful Liberty Bay Marina where families of Seals hang out, recently delivering babies and Orcas and Blow Hole Whales frolic.  Believe we see whales jump from the bay which sets the town in excitement on occassions as we are an inlet, but they come and seem to be drawn here.
