Choose Each Other Again


Welcome to Rising Phoenix Counseling Services! We primarily work with couples, new parents, military families and folks struggling with communication or mood problems.

The ongoing effects of the coronavirus pandemic have increased interest in collaboration in healthcare and Telehealth services. Therapy includes addressing your need for preventative, whole-person care as well as relationship healing. Many  mental health conditions are exacerbated by improper diet and lifestyle choices. While we focus on behavioral health we also refer for primary care services. Behavioral heath counseling allows us to serve you, an already whole person, into a healthier, happier- you! Research indicates integrated healthcare improves mental and physical health outcomes, minimizes substance use, and lowers lifetime medical costs. 

You deserve a holistic view as a person as well as a couple. Living a meaningful life and maintaining a loving relationship is absolutely possible. Regardless of how you feel right now please know you’re not alone- and transformation is possible.

Our passion is working with couples and young families. Many couples get overwhelmed moving, balancing career and family responsibilities while yearning for more connection with their spouse. Our therapists completed Level 3 Practicum Training In Gottman Method Couples Therapy and use it as a blueprint to help couples transform their relationship because it’s the best research based intervention for couples.

We have a comprehensive perspective of how military life impacts family life. Many couples get overwhelmed balancing career and family responsibilities. Many service members yearn to make their relationship better even during deployments. Military families often have extra challenges due to constant adjustments. We offer couples counseling, workshops and all day intensive marathon therapy for couples in crisis. We can usually schedule you within two weeks of receiving your paperwork.

Success Stories

My husband and I married young and had children right away. I felt alone as he was always gone. I tried not to complain as I didn’t want to be one of ‘those’ wives. He seemed happy- but I was miserable. Laila helped us talk, listen and finally communicate. We were able to become a team even while he deployed yet again. We learned commitment isn’t constrained to time or distance.

My wife complained all the time and I was sick and tired of listening to her. I just wanted her to be happy and to have some peace for myself. I packed up one day to leave. She surprised me when she asked me to attend counseling. I love my wife so I said I’d try it but honestly wasn’t hopeful. Laila helped me listen to my wife. Magically, she helped my wife quit blaming me. It has made all the difference as we no longer have the same fights and know how to find solutions that are win/win.

My husband had an online affair. I knew he was sorry but couldn’t look at him the same way again. I wanted to work things out but felt so angry. I was happy one minute and a raging b*tch the next minute. I felt crazy. Laila helped us understand what was going on with me and what would be required of each of us to heal the marriage. It was such a relief to have her support.
