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.

Relationships can be complex. Each individual has their own set of needs, wants, hopes and dreams. In couples counseling we explore the relationship, what has been working, and how to work through the "knots" so that you can experience more moments of joy, connection and increase the love for one another. I work with couples who are either looking forward to begin "coupling", are wanting to have more interest in their relationship, couples experiencing disconnect, as well as couples who are wondering if their relationship can last. In couples counseling, we look at all the components, patterns, love languages and together, create a pathway, as well as steps to healthy change.

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?
