In my work with couples, I strive to know each person well, to understand what challenges and distortions are brought into the relationship, and to foster an open and collaborative dynamic. This structure does not leave room for blame, which is hurtful and counter to the development of nurturing, bonded, and loving adult relationships. Instead, the focus remains on needed emotional relearning and behavioral change within the couple. To make your relationship last, you must become better friends, learn to manage conflict, and create ways to support each others dreams for the future. I will help you accomplish this by paying attention to several aspects of healthy relationships.

Marriage or couple relationships are a tug of war for power and control. When the leverage of the couple becomes one sided: disappointment, fears, worries and anger become predominant emotions. At this point, you may think about leaving because you can't understand your conflicted feelings. Remember, " You can't run away from yourself". It is essential to know your contribution to the dysfunction in the relationship. When you can face your feelings and behaviors patterns and take responsibility for your actions leaving the "blame" behind, the couple begins the repair process enabling respectful listening and communicating leading to healing feelings and setting the stage for intimacy.

My approach to counseling couples involves facilitating an environment where the couple can increase their understanding, awareness, and empathy within their relationship. This approach utilizes methods from the Gottman Model for Couples therapy, and we explore tools that the couple is willing to use to learn more effective methods of communicating with each other, handling conflict, and increase the sense of intimacy and connectedness in the relationship.

When working with couples, I help both partners to change the way they are viewing the relationship. Rather than focusing on who is to blame, I focus instead on looking at what happens to couples as a process involving each partner. I also focus on helping the partners to communicate more effectively, creating more empathic attunement between partners, and point out the strengths in the relationship that help build resiliency.

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.

As a licensed counselor working with warring or love-lost couples for over 25 years, I understand how you may range in your reactions—to infidelity, addiction, money, sex issues, and more—from frustrating annoyance to outright desperation, with everything in between. Communication breakdowns are typically a crucial component. One of my most helpful approaches for couples is Imago Relationship Therapy (in which I am board certified). I also incorporate, as needed, many other dynamic systems approaches, including Brief Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Attachment Therapy, to name a few. I believe that different unique and/or combined approaches are optimal for different couples. Whether you....

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?

I provide couples counseling that emphasizes that there are two separate individuals contributing to one couples dynamic. Therefore I strive to understand how each member of the couple functions and how this impacts the relationship. The goal is to determine if the couple can learn how to complement one another in a manner that will maximize relationship satisfaction.
