Couples are two people who are old enough to enter into a relational partnership without parental approval. I work with lesbians, gays and heterosexual couples. My office is a safe place to discuss challenges that interfere with healthy couple relationships, and other concerns without judgment. Most couples know what's needed to jump start their relationship, but are unable to articulate their desire to one another.

Couples seek counseling to learn to interact in ways that are more satisfying to both members of the relationship. Couples often find they have developed patterns that interfere with emotional or physical closeness. Many times members of a couple find they miscommunicate and feel great frustration and lack of appreciation from one another. Couples can have difficulty sharing certain feelings, such as anger, or sexual preferences. In some cases violence can enter into a couple’s behavior putting one or both members at risk. Capital Counseling provides discreet, respectful, and confidential counseling for couples seeking to build greater mutual satisfaction and enjoyment in their relationships

Couples are dyads formed of exclusion. They conspire, they are rude. it's much better, particularly for girls, to act independently. I enjoy my role as Minister because it affords me the "promiscuity" I require in order to get to know everyone! No significant other would tolerate my wish to join in unspecified groups. Fit in, I do all by myself. I wouldn't really consider trading. my celibacy nor sharing. my soapbox with any other.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist much of my work is with couples. Couples can be challenged in all stages of the life cycle: Pre-marriage, marital, living together, separating, divorcing, re-marrying, etc. Working with couples is a complex and challenging area of therapy which I particularly enjoy. Often the stakes are high. Helping couples come to a place where each partner is more whole and healthy and the relationship is strong and satisfying is a very gratifying part of my work.

Sometimes in a relationship the trust has been broken or you no longer feel loved and appreciated. Before contemplating divorce therapy can help restore the relationship. Attending therapy together can also assist you as a couple to define your needs and overcome resentments that may be intruding in your ability to move forward together.

Different stages of life can cause stress in a relationship. The birth of a child, or a child leaving home, a parent moving in, or change in career are just a handful of examples of the types of life changing events that can stress any relationship, no matter how close you are or how long you've been together. I like to work with couples as they experience the changes taking place in and around their lives, and understand how the changes can impact their relationship.

If you are in a troubled relationship, seeking help is more effective than ignoring your problems or hoping they get better on their own. Whether your goal is to strengthen bonds and gain a better understanding of each other or to resolve under-lying tensions, couples counseling can move your relationship to a happier, more satisfying place. Some of the issues that I address in treatment include: communication problems, sexual difficulties, conflicts with child rearing or blended families, substance abuse, financial problems, anger, infidelity and divorce.

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.

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.

Our intimate relationships can be the source of our greatest joy and the place we confront our deepest fears and vulnerabilities. Through the use of an emotionally focused approach, I help couples expand and reorganize their inner experience, develop an awareness of destructive patterns, reconnect with one another and heal from emotional pain. Research on Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) has demonstrated the effectiveness of this approach: Following EFT, 90% of couples report improvement in their relationship, and indicate that that the changes attained through therapy endure over time. EFT allows couples to have a new experience of one another, and ultimately to create secure connection.

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.

I am an institute trained couples therapist and couples therapy is my area of specialization. Often I am able to help couples understand their difficulties and take some corrective action in a short time, and then invest more in-depth work to support and stabilize their relationship. Couples seeing me benefit from my interest in what's going on inside each partner that may be contributing to personal and relationship pain, and what's going on between the partners from a system of energy point of view that may be supporting and sustaining their difficulties. I help couples search for humor whenever possible. Learn more about my practice at www.ThriveTherapydoc.com.
