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.
