Marriage and Family Therapist
Clarksburg, Maryland 20871
As marriage and family Therapist, I have specialized training to work with couples. I assist couples in more than communication. I help them build connection, which is the glue of a relationship. All relationships can get into a negative pattern, but without a secure bond the relationship can spin out of control. I assist couples in learning about each partners attachment style and help the couple build healthy problem solving skills through bonding. I offer premarital counseling with an online assessment. If you want to improve a longterm relationship, or heal wounds of infidelity, lets get to the heart of the matter. We all want to know we are important to our partner.

Most couples share one significant challenge -- how to resolve conflict successfully. Conflict is a constant part of life -- partners may disagree about where to go for dinner or might argue about a major issue like how to manage finances. In most relationships, even small conflicts remain unresolved because couples use ineffective passive, agressive, and passive-aggressive communication styles. Every unresolved conflict creates a little more resentment and a little more tension. My focus in couples work is on helping clients to learn how to communicate with and hear one another and how to resolve conflict successfully. The result is healthier relationships and happier couples.

As a certified Imago Relationship therapist, I work with couples to create a safe place in order for them to connect once again. Through the Imago Dialogue, couples learn to communicate with each other safely and to identify and understand the present dynamics in their relationship that are causing distress. We also explore the past to see the effect on the present and learn new ways of relating and behaving.

I provide marriage and couples counseling. I help couples to improve their communications to reduce arguing and to improve their understanding of each other. I also work with couples going through the pain of an affair. In most cases couples can work through their feelings and have an improved connection. Being a male therapist sometimes can help reluctant husbands/partners feel more comfortable coming to therapy and talking in therapy.

Many couples have difficulties communicating. There may have been an affair or there may be a loss of intimacy. I can teach you powerful ways to respectfully resolve issues, communicate and connect in a safe, nurturing way to restore caring and love. You can learn effective ways to bring healing and forgiveness back into your relationship. Since each couple is unique, I use a variety of approaches, such as, the 'Couples Dialogue' developed by Dr. Harville Hendrix, Emotionally Focused Therapy of Dr. Susan Johnson, research of Dr. John Gottman, among others. I also help premarital couples to avoid pitfalls in their relationship and prepare for a successful long-term relationship.

Committed and loving connections with a partner are probably the most challenging and potentially healing of all relationships in life. Deep fears of closeness tend to get in the way of realizing such potential, often without being consciously recognized as fears. I help partners in couples to find ways of being gentle and honest with each other and with themselves as they confront and overcome their fears.

Once, one of my clients told me that their mother told them, "90% of couples' problems had to do with: Unmet Expectations, Undelivered Communications, and Unresolved Conflicts." That covers a lot of ground & rings true, doesn't it? At the same time, "knowing why" there are problems, is not the same thing as "knowing what to do" to address your concerns, nor "actually doing" what is necessary (realistically & practically) to address your concerns. Let me be your "guide" in helping you "traverse the terrain of the heart" -- whether you want to build a solid foundation for your relationship, heal & repair it, enhance it, sort out 'where to from here' or end it in the most humane & sane way.

Couples usually go to therapy when they are feeling distressed. Maybe they are also feeling isolated from each other, distrustful, or like they just can't communicate with each other. I like to start by getting to know what is is like for each of you to be in your relationship and how each of you understands how your relationship ended up in this distressed place. When I work with couples, I use a model called Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT). EFT provides me with a map, a way to help couples out of their stuck places. I have earned my Certification as an Emotionally Focused Couple Therapist and Supervisor.

I generally see each person individually prior to seeing a couple. I do not keep secrets in relationships and make that clear, as that would undermine trust. I use Emotion Focused Therapy with couples to help them reconnect or build deeper connections. This is a structure approach that is one of the most evidence-based methods. We work together to help you find rekindle your love!
