There is a common expectation that couples' counseling must focus on improving communication. I have found that problematic patterns of communication can certainly play a role in some dysfunctional relationships and can be corrected at a later point in counseling. Couples' therapy needs to begin by addressing the core factor that sabotages all other attempts to heal the relationship - the lack of respect! Not love, not honesty, not compromise; but to truly experience the other as an independent human being whose world-view and needs are taken into consideration in all one's decisions and actions. Respect, in its deepest and varied expressions, is the key to creating a successful relationship

Do you find yourself wanting more for your current relationship? Are you desiring more closeness, intimacy and emotional connection with your partner? In the course of a relationship you may find that you are experiencing more frequent arguing and less frequent positive communication, but not sure why. I help couples gain insight into patterns and cycles that are keeping them stuck and unhappy. I have received training and use Gottman Method Couples Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy in my therapy work with couples. These therapies are very effective in helping couples repair, renew and restore their relationships to previous levels of love, caring and closeness.
