There are unique challenges in romantic relationships that differ from other types of friendship and yet friendship is the basis for most happy couples. I utilize the Gottman Method to assess the strengths and challenges in your relationship and help you explore the differences in your beliefs, expectations, communication styles, etc. After the assessment we will work together to create the therapy goals for your relationship.

Helping individuals and couples realize more fulfilling and intimate relationships in their lives is a major goal of my practice. Using diferent client-specific approaches, I can help with problems in communication, compatibility, control, and other issues. By using mindfulness practices to focus your attention, you literally change the structure of the brain, re-sculpting the neural pathways that underlie a sense of personal well-being. We improve the quality of our relationships when we improve our ability to perceive the inner workings of our minds. As we become increasingly intimate with the inner workings of our mind, we also develop our ability to understand others.

Relationships are hard! They can bring out the best in us...and also the worst. What's more, its easy to feel confused and unable to see what is happening clearly when things in your relationship are troubled. Relationships can be up & down, and often it is that one familiar pattern or issue that triggers everything. As you and your partner are so 'in it', it is pretty difficult to find your own way out of the same old behavior. I work with couples, providing an unbiased and neutral perspective, helping you gain greater understanding into what is happening and how you want things to change. Yes, relationships are hard, but also contain infinite potential for healing & renewal.

There are countless models of healthy romantic relationships, from monogamous to polyamorous, and unique variations between partners. The scripts for dating and longterm relationships of our parents’ generations may not be applicable to your relationship, and there is no formal education in how to be a good partner or how to identify unhealthy relationships. But there is psychological research that shows that effective communication, emotional openness, intimacy, and other factors contribute to healthy relationships. Creating these conditions are skills that can be learned. I practice brief humanistic and emotion-focused therapy (EFT) to help my LGBTQ and hetero clients learn these skills.
