Are you wondering what you are doing in your current relationship? Do you see where it is going? Are you "stuck" in a rut? I can help couples delve into their relationship and uncover what is keeping it from moving forward. Maintaining a relationship takes work, every day, by each person in it. People receive and show love in different ways. Understanding your partner's needs and wants can make a difference.

In couples counseling, I explore the needs of both parties, their personal goals, their dream for the future and how the two people can live out their lives either together, supporting one another, or determining the direction of the relationship. We will look at personality styles, communication, cultural differences and the ability to repair and/or accept repair.

As a marriage and family therapist, my training and passion is in the work I do with couples. So often, couples suffer tremendous pain through conflict, poor communication, and resentment with one another. If infidelity has occurred (emotionally or physically), it might seem as if there is no room for repair. Often what people are looking for in a relationship is a feeling of being: safe, secure, seen and soothed by their partners. Rekindling these four elements through therapy can enhance a relationship, and rebuild the trust and respect which has often disappeared due to fighting. My approach includes Emotion Focused Couples Therapy, which has a 90% improvement rate in couples!

Your relationship is my client. We we will look what is working and what is not working. We will look not only at the way you communicate, but the message under the communication. Research tells us 85% of communication is non-verbal, so the message behind the words is critical to explore. There are other proven ways such as the research of John Gottman and Susan Johnson.

There's the details of a conflict and then there's the meaning. I work from an attachment perspective which means I understand the deeper stuff going on in conflict and work to support those healthy needs in each partner as they learn to understand and support those for each other. It really becomes about intimacy (in - to - me - see), discovering how to feel more known and loved and to offer that for your partner. This helps people to feel more balanced in their emotions during conflict as well as increases their ability to be there for their partner when they need them. The insight I offer helps people stop re-enacting painful experiences of loss and disappointment.

My desire in working with couple is to create an environment that offers safety and support. Often Couples Therapy can become a space to do individual work in the presence of your partner. This is great work, we learn so much about our partners doing this work. However, my goal is to take that work a step further, to learn what the relationship requires to grow and strengthen so that you can become a team that works together.

I love the richness of working with couples. I especially enjoy helping couples heal relationship injuries, reduce conflict, learn more effective patterns of interaction, and discover new ways of connecting with one another. Every couple has a dance. The dance doesn't complely change over time, but the steps can soften to create a more peaceful relationship. I will help you with your individual steps so you and can develop new, more adaptive ways of getting your needs met. Relationships should be a place of solace and comfort. I can help you get there.
