There is no manual on how to have the perfect relationship or marriage. Often times communication becomes strained and the joy and pleasure that the relationship started with turns into a tenuous exchange. We understand the dynamics of couples and provide simple solutions to decrease the tension and increase the joy. We utilize the Gottman method as other techniques that uniquely match your needs.

There are countless models of healthy romantic relationships, from monogamous to polyamorous, and unique variations between partners. The scripts for dating and longterm relationships of our parents’ generations may not be applicable to your relationship, and there is no formal education in how to be a good partner or how to identify unhealthy relationships. But there is psychological research that shows that effective communication, emotional openness, intimacy, and other factors contribute to healthy relationships. Creating these conditions are skills that can be learned. I practice brief humanistic and emotion-focused therapy (EFT) to help my LGBTQ and hetero clients learn these skills.
