Couples usually seek counseling when they are struggling with each others behaviors or communication styles. I work with the couples that come to me to figure out where these behaviors and communication styles started and provide education and encouragement towards resolving issues. Couples are taught to focus on solutions rather than getting bogged down in the problems. They're individual issues are addressed which allows them to work better as a team. They are taught practical skills to utilize not only with their partners, but in all aspects of their lives.

I do a unique form of Couples Therapy and so far have had no failures ( knock on wood!). I do not do behavioral interventions such as communication training with homework, although communication skills are involved, but I work by seeing each partner both individually and as a couple. My approach is based on the belief that "two people can see things in two different ways and both be "right." This is unlike other approaches where couples vie to convince the therapist of WHO IS RIGHT OR WHO IS THE GOOD ONE. No one is born for another person: either in a marital couple or a business partner: the couples that survive are the ones who can respect how they have come to see things differently

Relationships can be complicated. You may be struggling with a particular issue and not know how to approach it with your partner. Or you may feel like you're repeating the same patterns over and over. Perhaps your partner experienced a traumatic event and you want to be supportive, but aren't sure what to do to help. Maybe you are just having a hard time talking to each other and getting along. Couples therapy can help! I provide a comfortable and open place to discuss your concerns, feelings and goals. I help couples gain a deeper understanding of themselves and their issues, and work collaboratively with them to build effective communication skills, reduce conflict and promote growth.
