Being in a relationship is hard work. And growing up doesn't often prepare us for the challenges of creating a new family. My approach helps you learn how to communicate better with each other. This often means learning how to be vulnerable. This work isn't easy and it takes time but is so worth it.

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?

For over 15 year I have enjoyed working with couples either married or singles. The time and effort people put into a relationship is worthy of consideration and if trouble, tensions, misunderstanding arise, it's always advantage to take a look at what the problem is and how it began if for no other reason than to learn from the situation so as to not repeat it. I follow John Gottman's philosophy and theory and work actively and vigorously with the couple.

Working with couples is one of my strengths. Couples are two individuals who come from very different backgrounds in some cases who have come together to form a new partnership. I work with couples through Intimacy Therapy to help them achieve the relationships they are looking for by identifying the aloneness they are feeling and how it can be removed; the relational needs the are needing to be met; and the pain they are experiencing that needs to be healed, with the help of the other.

I have found that in most couple's therapy it is the therapist's job to help each member of the couple understand the others feelings and point of view. Therefore, I focus my time and attention making the couple feel safe during the sessions so that I may carefully explain and suggest ways for the couple to communicate their feelings. In addition to helping the couples express their feelings, I also typically focus on helping the couple hear what their partner has to say.

When your relationship is hard, it can make everything else hard too. Focusing at work becomes harder, keeping commitments is harder, falling asleep is harder, getting out of bed is harder, remembering to eat, etc. It hurts when there is distance between you and the one you love and you don't know what to do to fix things. I am a couple therapist that specializes in helping couples that want to stay together but are struggling with communication and want help. I can help couples recreate their relationship into one that meets both partners' needs. Email or call me today to get the relationship help you're looking for.

Two individuals from differing backgrounds meet and "fall in love". They begin to notice the relationship is deteriorating instead of being enhanced over time.Feelings are ignored and undiscussed. Soon, two people who should offer support and companionship to each other can't speak without agruing or feeling hurt. Couples go through stages in relationships. In the beginning that time of closeness is cherished, but each individual in the relationship needs growth for themselves as well as to enhance the realtionship. When love starts to erode, it's time to open up communication instead of assuming you know the motives of your partner. Give open dialogue another chance.

Are you fighting about the same things, over and over again? Do most arguments end the same way - in a stalemate and without resolution? You may be stuck fighting perpetual battles, those without a clear and easy answer. Couples therapy can help you change this dynamic. You'll learn what the arguments are really about (often, a need for more emotional connection). And you'll learn how to fight fairly and when to let things go. Reach out today to schedule your first couples session and move towards peace in your relationship.

With couples, I practice Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), which is focused on the reconnection between partners. This approach views attachment, or the loving bond between partners, to be the key element in relationships. When couples argue over various issues, such as money, sex, chores, or important decisions, one or both partners often feels disconnected, unimportant, or insecure with their partner. When we feel our important others are not there for us, we are biologically wired to feel distressed and become anxious and agitated or numb and distant. If we do not reconnect and re-establish our sense of safety with our partner, we can get stuck in rigid, habitual patterns of
