Couples counseling is a passion of mine! Sometimes one or both partners has problems communicating, expressing emotions, or staying committed. I guide couples through the rocky paths that relationships bring, and help you grow closer from the experience. Most couples leave therapy feeling like they've learned so many skills both together and individually. Issues we work on can include whether or not to marry, have children, infertility, infidelity, family problems, jealousy, dishonesty, or fair division of household responsibilities. Sometimes an energetic counselor is all that is needed to help a couple begin a new relationship based on mutual respect, shared values, and common goals.

Being a part of a couple is a challenging experience. It can be full of joy and wonder and even bliss, but it can also be painful and unhealthy and miserable. All human beings long for a secure attachment to another, but it is sometimes difficult to make that happen. My approach is based on three important principals: 1) there needs to equality in a relationship with mutual respect, 2) we are all very different from each other even if we share many interests and have common backgrounds, 3) we need to have an ongoing dialog throughout our relationship dealing with those differences with good communication skills. In many ways a couple relationship or marriage is like a laboratory for growth a

Relationships with those we love are some of the most significant factors in our happiness and mental well-being. Disharmony in relationships can cause frustration and sadness, but psychotherapy can help. I meet with couples - often together - but there are times when the others in our relationships are unavailable or unwilling to seek therapy. Nevertheless, therapy can still help resolve relationship problems even if those others aren't present. Sometimes, despite all our best efforts, a relationship needs to end. In that case, I help individuals and families navigate the challenges of break-ups and divorce.

The newest research on happiness makes clear something we all really know: that our closest relationships are the source of the greatest happiness and joy, meaning and purpose in our lives. Our significant other, our partner, our husband or wife is the person who knows us best, better than anyone. For all the same reasons, when difficulties come between you and your partner, it can seriously erode your happiness, and breakdowns in communication, building resentments, frustratingly repetitive arguments are very distressing. Nobody want this to happen; "Then why does it never seem that we're on the same page?" Consider couples counseling as a way to start a positive cycle ...

I have passion for helping couples overcome resentments and misunderstandings to create connection. I do this by helping each person discover and honestly express what is really going on for them and I ensure that the other has heard. I help my couples set goals for the relationship and understand each others' needs. I help increase the positivity in the relationship to transform the current dynamic and maintain good will which then motivates individuals to look at themselves and make and maintain changes for the sake of the relationship. Couples of all kinds will have an enhanced relationship after our work. If children happen to be involved, they will benefit, too!
