Couples counseling is my specialty, and what I most enjoy doing. I am Pro-Marriage, and work hard to help couples who want to stay together learn how to do so. I have completed Level 2 of training in Gottman Couples Therapy which utilizes a well-researched system of technique that can help couples move on from affairs, lack of intimacy and stale parallel marriages. The sessions are very interactive with the focus on processing present struggles, and re-examining past stumbling blocks to explore alternative ways to behave with each other. Couples are always seen together so that there is no story-telling and the focus is on the couple in a fair and balanced way.

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
