Couple counseling can help couples who are considering cohabitation, pre-marital discussion of expectations, relationship difficulities, communication issues, and sepation/divorce recovery. We believe where there is effort there is hope. Unfortunately, many relationships fail prematurely due to the lack of skills helpful in maintaining intimacy and closeness. We help couples discover their expectations, beliefs and values. We offer couples the practical tools to communicate in constructive ways, to problem solve to mutual satisfaction, and to remain intimate on all levels.

Couples can be married or not, of any gender identity, or sexual orientation. We will focus on how needs and wants are communicated and often explore how our families of origin impact the patterns in our current relationships. I primarily use Strength-Based, Emotionally Focused and Attachment Theories to guide my work with couples and will often assign homework.

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.

When I see a couple, one of the first things that interests me is what are the recurring conflicts. Almost always, these fights are efforts at repairing old injuries that took place long before the couple fell in love. The members of a couple find themselves hurt in ways that echo that early experience and so fight desperately for a different outcome. I teach couples to listen more calmly and express themselves more deeply. In this way, when the inevitable bruise occurs again, it becomes an opportunity to grow closer. The couples I work with describe feeling more loved and loving as a result of their work with me.

I work with pre- marital, unmarried and same sex couples seeking to improve their relationships. I encourage attention to what precipitated their call for help and go from there to identifying their coping patterns and strengths to create a treatment plan that makes sense to them. Homework assignments, role playing, possibly referrals for individual therapy may be part of the treatment recommendation in order to make couple work effective. Enhancement of assertiveness, intimacy and resilience skills are is the goal of treatment.

What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings?

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.

I have worked with couples for the last several years to help overcome the effects of infidelity, pornography, lack of intimacy or communication and to help build up what has been lost or stolen through life transitions or hardships. No marriage is without hope unless there is unaddressed abuse of any kind which kills any sense of trust and desire for closeness. I utilize many tools, but especially intimacy therapy. There is hope.
