Couples do not have to be married or follow the traditional roles. I have experience working with same sex couples. I work to increase effective communication skills. Trust and understanding of each partners needs are important areas of exploration in couples counseling. Pre-marital or cohabiting couples would also benefit from these services.

Most people come to therapy because of relationships. We are biologically wired to seek love and attachment. When a relationship is jeopardized, it can feel like our whole world is threatened. Couple's therapy is about learning to meet our needs, so that we are okay in or out of relationship. As we do so, we take pressure off of our partner-- and often our relationship improves automatically. Some couples may need additional help developing skills in: communication, confrontation, intimacy, and money management.
