Couples therapy can seem intimidating – one reason why people often wait too long to talk to a therapist. In my experience, when couples therapy isn’t successful, it is usually because the couple has waited far too long to give it a try. Remember, couples counseling is an investment in what matters most in your life. A therapist isn’t a judge, and neither of you is on trial. As with other forms of therapy, the right commitment and the right therapist at the right time can make all the difference. I have worked with all sorts of couples for more than 25 years; contact me if I you’d like to talk about your situation and whether therapy can help.

Relationships are hard work. We each bring our own set of baggage--expectations, past relationships, and family imprint for how relationships work--into our new relationships. Though relationships are extremely rewarding and exhilarating, they take patience, endurance, and diligent communication. Together we will dive into the barriers, strengths, and growth areas of your relationship. Whether you are looking to grow deeper together or have hit some hardships, there is hope for your relationship.

In working with couples, I encourage each partner to stop blaming, understand how they are being triggered by each other, learn how to stop arguing, and most importantly, how to hold onto their individuality while staying lovingly connected to each other. I also specialize in divorce support and recovery therapy when it has been determined by you and/or your partner that the relationship/marriage is over.

What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings?

Couples counseling usually focuses on finding shared goals for the relationship as well as understanding styles and barriers to communication. I use something called the speaker/listener technique which creates empathic listening and increases connectedness and intimacy among couples. I also believe we are a product of our upbringing and many times have dysfunctional barriers to effective communication.
