I help couples explore the possibility of re-launching their relationship toward one that is more emotionally and physically satisfying. Together, we look at limiting usage of familiar resentment and anger patterns. We discuss if it's possible to give amnesty to each other to transform the relationship into one that is grounded in friendship, where laughter & support exists. Many couples at some point become roommates where deep wounds exist due to loss of intimacy and possible infidelity. I help couples who have children together look at their co-parenting skills and explore ways to become a more "unified front" with their kids, this results in the family functioning together as a unit.

Some therapists may recommend to a particular couple that the partners engage first in individual therapy, separately, before engaging in couples work. If both partners are not able to maintain a certain level of insight, responsibility, and maturity in their communications, couples work will be ineffective. For relationship counseling to significantly help a relationship, each partner needs to have a commitment to the relationship, or, at least to the couples counseling for the time it continues. Each partner must be generally honest, self-aware, and interested in doing relationship work to have an optimal outcome. Some couples need therapy to help end a relationship in a healthy manner.

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?
