Careers and children each place enormous stress on a couple’s ability to be together in an intimate and satisfying way. Every couple has different ways of dealing with the challenges, and counseling can provide the perspective and encouragement to re-create a shared vision for the future. For something as important as this, it is surprising how little training and preparation is provided; family therapy fills in the blanks, and resolves the confusion.

Currently I work with couples to create a therapeutic alliance of trust and safety, to gain better insights about their life challenges, and to assist the clients in reaching their goals and connect better with their loved ones through improved communication patterns and increased intimacy. The pain and conflict of the committed relationship arise not out of lack of love for our partners, but from misunderstanding what love relationship is about. Using Imago Dialogue restores contact and connection, enabling mutual emotional healing, restarting the developmental engine and leading to the recovery of personal wholeness

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 brings a third person - the therapist – into the dyad in hopes of clarifying or resolving conflict that threatens the integrity of the two-person relationship. Patterns can develop in a relationship that are hard to identify without an independent listener. Fears and needs from early life often unknowingly influence how we experience our partner. Learning to know your partner’s strengths and weaknesses as seen through the lens of a trained listener can help you see each other in a new differently.

There are countless models of healthy romantic relationships, from monogamous to polyamorous, and unique variations between partners. The scripts for dating and longterm relationships of our parents’ generations may not be applicable to your relationship, and there is no formal education in how to be a good partner or how to identify unhealthy relationships. But there is psychological research that shows that effective communication, emotional openness, intimacy, and other factors contribute to healthy relationships. Creating these conditions are skills that can be learned. I practice brief humanistic and emotion-focused therapy (EFT) to help my LGBTQ and hetero clients learn these skills.

The purpose of couples counseling is to stimulate self-reflection and to facilitate healthy, honest communication between individuals. Couples counseling can be a place where you and your partner come together to examine patterns of thinking and behaving which lead to unhealthy merging, distance and conflict. Couples counseling can also be a place to disclose new information, reassess old agreements, and change the direction of a relationship.

In working with couples and conflicts, I approach it more as an organic facilitation process rather than traditional therapy. Utilizing new human technologies, we come to understand that there is no right or wrong or good and bad. Yet, there are insidious unconscious dynamics that are powerful and can cause blind spots. Our process together will tease apart these dynamics while working on resolving them, thereby uncovering new fields of possibilities.
