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

Couples seek counseling to learn to interact in ways that are more satisfying to both members of the relationship. Couples often find they have developed patterns that interfere with emotional or physical closeness. Many times members of a couple find they miscommunicate and feel great frustration and lack of appreciation from one another. Couples can have difficulty sharing certain feelings, such as anger, or sexual preferences. In some cases violence can enter into a couple’s behavior putting one or both members at risk. Capital Counseling provides discreet, respectful, and confidential counseling for couples seeking to build greater mutual satisfaction and enjoyment in their relationships

Couples are dyads formed of exclusion. They conspire, they are rude. it's much better, particularly for girls, to act independently. I enjoy my role as Minister because it affords me the "promiscuity" I require in order to get to know everyone! No significant other would tolerate my wish to join in unspecified groups. Fit in, I do all by myself. I wouldn't really consider trading. my celibacy nor sharing. my soapbox with any other.

I work with couples from two perspectives: PREPARE and REPAIR. PREPARE work is undertaken in the first five years or so of a relationship. Modeling, practice and reinforcement of skills for empathy, listening, emotion regulation, attunement, and time-out happen before dysfunctional patterns are established. Relationship satisfaction is increased over the long run. REPAIR work is harder. Once dysfunctional patterns are ingrained or betrayal (sexual or other) experienced, relationship repair must be mediated and trust restored. This can be extremely gratifying work resulting in a stronger, more intimate relationship than ever imagined.
