Distress in a couple is often the result of one or both members of the couple trying not to be vulnerable in order to protect themselves from pain and disappointment, but this invulnerability prohibits the flow of more positive emotions that lead to healthier relationships. My experience has been that in order to bring down the walls of self-protection we need to approach the problem from at least four directions: improving communication skills through exercises, understanding the historical issues and expectations that are brought into the relationship, understanding what each individual partner is trying to work through in the relationship, and processing the issues as they arrive in the here a....

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?

I work with couples to become more conscious and intentional in their interactions. I teach couples specific communication skills to break destructive patterns of relating. I encourage each partner to look and their own behavior and how they may be contributing to the problems. I explore with couples how the problems they are having in their current relationship are related to their experiences in childhood. I work with couples on eliminating reactivity by implementing self-soothing techniques. My goal with couples is to have both partners feel heard and understood by each other.

Couples therapy is my area of expertise. I have seen many couples and have been very helpful to almost all of them. I have seen young couples who are trying to make a decision about their future, and couples in various other stages of their marriage or relationship. You will benefit from my knowledge of the field and my interactive style. We will explore the issues that keep you from enjoying each other fully and practice how to get there in a positive, collaborative way.

People have different life experiences, cultural backgrounds and often different religious backgrounds. Those factors combine to shape who they are and influence their perceptions, behaviors and approaches to dealing with differences that occur in any relationship. My job is to first help the couple sort out causes for the problems. From that basis I focus on helping them implement specific skills for overcoming repetitive counter-productive interaction to improve understanding and communication with better conflict resolution ability for restoring and growing a stronger and more satisfying bond

Many of the challenges faced by couples--married or not--involve an attempt to balance the desire for personal intimacy with the need for a sense of personal autonomy, although this is not necessarily obvious initially. I work with couples to help them achieve such a balance, while helping them develop a sensitivity to each other's needs. I also attempt to generate solutions that are experienced as fair and just by both parties, while maintaining my own impartiality. An especially valuable aspect of couples counseling for some involves evaluating whether the couple is a likely prospect for a marital relationship.

Careers and children each place enormous stress on a couple’s ability to be together in an intimate and satisfying way. Every couple has different ways of dealing with the challenges, and counseling can provide the perspective and encouragement to re-create a shared vision for the future. For something as important as this, it is surprising how little training and preparation is provided; family therapy fills in the blanks, and resolves the confusion.

As a licensed counselor working with warring or love-lost couples for over 25 years, I understand how you may range in your reactions—to infidelity, addiction, money, sex issues, and more—from frustrating annoyance to outright desperation, with everything in between. Communication breakdowns are typically a crucial component. One of my most helpful approaches for couples is Imago Relationship Therapy (in which I am board certified). I also incorporate, as needed, many other dynamic systems approaches, including Brief Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Attachment Therapy, to name a few. I believe that different unique and/or combined approaches are optimal for different couples. Whether you....
