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?

Is your relationship suffering from distance, anger and negativity, lack of intimacy, boredom, distrust or betrayal? Couples therapy can often help turn these upsetting situations around. I help couples develop new skills of understanding, listening and connection. In sessions we identify and learn how to implement positive connections. . My work is influenced by the approaches of John Gottman, Sue Johnson and Stan Tatkin. My nearly 30 years of work experience has helped me learn a great deal from my clients. Together, we will quickly identify what is and isn't helpful for your unique relationship. In my work you will feel the respect and safety that your relationship deserves.

Couples in trouble are often spouses who are at odds with each other over unrealistic expectations that true love be their salvation. The spouse who is not the answer to personal unhappiness is blamed as the problem. The answer is to create a "we" that meets the mutual needs of the partners, and creates an environment of safety and security to empower each partner to be more accepting and loving of themselves.

Couples counseling involves learning to listen, agreeing to disagree and having mutual respect for self and others. This reaches beyond marriage- it can be any type of relationship. I am currently studying the Gottmann Method for Couples Counseling and know how to facilitate communication skills to bring a clear understanding and better engagement strategies for couples.

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.

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.
