I love to work with couples, and find that they are both individuals with a different set of DNA. I work with the couples to help improving communication, intimacy, and to resolve their differences. I also work with couples who are separating to better understand the emotional grieving, and change that they will be transitioning too, and its effects on the family and how to cope with those effects.

In couples therapy couples learn to identify and stop the recurring patterns in the relationship that cause hurt, rejection, and feelings of abandonment. Once this occurs couples are safe enough to learn a new way to communicate without judgement or blaming. The ability to identify deeper more vulnerable needs and feelings leads to a sense of trust and a bond of secure connection. We all have baggage that can interfere with closeness until we can resolve what is necessary.

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

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?

Behavioral Marital Therapy is used focusing on individual responsibility for his/her actions and level of satisfaction in the relationship.Couples identify desired changes in behavior and then talking about new actions. Couples make agreements or contracts and learned communication and problem solving. Self-regulation on the part of both partners to achieve mutual satisfaction in the relationship was embraced as a key component to what was increasingly called "couples counseling" rather than "marital counseling".

"We just don't communicate" is what I frequently hear from couples. Is there something more? Usually, yes. What can really be happening? Anger, resentment, feeling alone in a relationship,hurt feelings, finances, infidelity, addiction, overwhelmed with child raising, stress, phew. All of these issues and others can take a toll on couples. Sometimes we all need help to sort through problems. Therapy can help. Giving ourselves permission to receive help, is half the battle. To accept therapy means you value your relationship enough to try. Therapy does not have to be long term and we can work together to decide on your goals.
