While traditional 45-minutes-a-week talk therapy teaches communication skills, many couples can communicate perfectly well until their emotions get in the way. When your emotions hit an 8 or a 9 on a 0-10 scale, all of your communication skills instantly disappear. This is why, for couples with strong emotional reactions, traditional therapy can actually make things worse. I use 3-HOUR SESSIONS to help you identify and strengthen the positive parts of your relationship, eliminate the hot-buttons that drag you into those old vicious-circle arguments filled with hurt, anger or resentment and to develop the right emotional climate for healthy and productive communication

Our LMFTs and licensed professionals work with couples to reduce conflict, change behavior, change your responses to your partner’s behavior, find realistic and practical solutions, and empower you as a couple to make a terrific life together. This differs from marriage counseling because we provide advice and/or show you how to develop your own rational solutions by dealing with problems in each of your histories that may be creating unhealthy patterns of relating.
