Relationships bring unique challenges when trying to blend two separate complicated lives. Understanding the complexities of relationships dynamics and what each person brings to the table allows for change to occur. Strategies for better communication, healthy boundaries and self responsibility is the place to start. We would love to help you.

Too often we tend to our relationships after life's obligations have been met. However, that extra time is as mythical as a unicorn. Thus, our relationships get treated like a cactus, instead of the orchids that they are. And, like any orchid treated like a cactus, they wilt and their survival becomes threatened. But, if we treat an orchid like a cactus we don't blame the flower, unlike how we tend to blame our relationships. My approach to couple's counseling is mechanical. First, I help a couple to diagnose the problem(s). Then we do exercises to enhance intimacy, followed by exercises for solving problems and improving communication. I help couples to flourish as they used to.
