Are you feeling frustrated and stuck?
- Do you two argue over little things only to feel distant and misunderstood when the issue goes unresolved?
- Are you at odds with one another over how to parent the kids or how to juggle your other responsibilities?

Our Proprietary Curriculum
By investing 20 minutes a week into our proprietary curriculum, Relationships that Not Only Last But THRIVE, you can channel your motivation for change into beneficial tasks while using your time efficiently. The curriculum contains 32 actionable items consisting of educational videos, assessments, and worksheets. Created by Flourish President Angela Sasseville, LPC, it’s full of tools and insights that have been proven by research to be highly effective and relevant by the top leaders in relationship psychology.
The program converts right-brained relationship concepts (that can be abstract) into practical tools and checklists that resonate with concrete thinkers and left-brained individuals. It provides improved clarity and language around the issues you’ve been sensing but couldn’t articulate before. It’s the perfect supplemental tool for any couple or individual who’s working on improving their relationship through therapy.
Flourish built its reputation on the work that we do on relationships.
Our therapists are well versed in the challenges and issues effecting couples and are known for their superb couples therapy skills. Sure, we like our couples to feel supported by us. But we also like seeing them get results.

“Marriage is not a static state between two unchanging people. Marriage is a psychological and spiritual journey that begins in the ecstasy of attraction, meanders through a rocky stretch of self-discovery, and culminates in the creation of an intimate, joyful, lifelong union.”
