Your relationship has the potential to become a place where you can bring more joy and happiness into your life. Couples therapy is the most challenging of therapies due to the emotional intensity of the couple’s dynamics. When both members of a couple are committed to repairing the relationship, working with a skilled clinician is highly rewarding and successful. Couples entering counseling who have a mixed agenda where splitting up is a possibility, need help to discern and determine their goals. I see couples together as well as individually, and work with them to determine what would need to change for them achieve increased affection and the closeness they had when they first met.

Learn to have the conversations you need to have to feel understood, valued, and supported. Learn to make repairs so your relationship can heal and grow. Somtimes we have concerns that we will be abandoned or rejected, that we are not good enough or don’t deserve to be loved. Once we feel safe and understood again, we calm down. Couples work with me on issues such as learning effective communication skills so they transform stuck patterns, deepening the fun, romantic and intimate parts of their relationship, overcoming resentment and trust issues (including infidelities), being on the same page with financial decisions, working through parenting challenges, and managing separations.
