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.

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?

Many times, it is difficult to find a balance within the marital unit. Often times, each individual is unable to recognize or understand the other, and as such, conflict often occurs. Couples therapy allows a safe environment for both members to feel respected and heard. Emphasis is placed on helping to identify needs and expectations of one another and work toward achieving goals of the individual and the couple in session.

Couples, married or not, seek therapy for many reasons; including hoping to resolve differences, hoping to improve communication, and/or hoping to improve their intimate relationship. My work with couples, enhanced by my training in sex therapy, addresses these issues so as to help the individuals within the relationship more effectively express themselves and more effectively understand their partner, and so as to promote the overall strength and joy in the relationship itself.

Today more than ever, it is becoming more and more difficult to stay married or in a long term relationship. There are so many external pressures and not enough time in the day to get it all done. We start to neglect what matters most to us and before we know it, our relationships are crumbling. Like a garden, if you do not tend to it, it will perish. Your relationship is just that, a garden. Let's work together to restore that passion, to disrupt unhealthy patterns, and redefine your relationship to make it more meaningful. It is never too late to restore love in a relationship - it takes time and commitment but it is possible. Let's get your relationship thriving again.

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.

All couples have disagreements - it's how you handle them that matters. Meredith works with couples to identify triggers for chronic conflict, develop and practice strategies for reducing and mediating arguments, and enhance each partner's understanding of the other's needs, desires, and perspective. Couples will feel "heard" again and learn to manage their physiological reactions to conflict. Meredith's approach involves emotional support, conflict mediation/resolution, and working collaboratively toward goals selected by her clients.
