Couples face many challenges and couples counseling can help couples of all types identify and work toward resolution of conflicts and ultimately improve their relationships. Couples counseling tends to focus on relationship building and/or rebuilding and typically includes both partners, although one partner may choose to initiate counseling alone and invite the other partner in when deemed appropriate, or not. The therapeutic process may focus on identification of values, needs, and roles within the relationship with the overall goals being focus on relational strengths, improved communication, and change in dysfunctional behaviors.

In couples counseling, a couple gets an opportunity to do something they rarely, if ever, do: discuss their problems with an impartial third party in a neutral environment which is not a part of their daily life. The counselor's participation adds a new perspective to the dynamic and begins to show the couple what they can accomplish, or maybe used to accomplish, but which has been undiscovered or neglected. My approach combines in-the-moment processing with ongoing feedback, presenting of relationship tools, and communication skills training, according to the couple's needs. Affection and communication are often the key, as they are often the foundation of every relationship.

Happy couples aren't smarter, richer, or more psychologically astute than others. But in their day-to-day lives, they have hit upon a dynamic that keeps their negative thoughts and feelings about each other (which all couples have) from overwhelming their positive ones. They have what I'd call an emotionally intelligent relationship. The more emotionally intelligent a couple, the better able they are to understand, honor, and respect each other & their relationship. As I have recently become a Gottman 7 Principles Program Educator, my skills repertoire has grown exponentially.

Living as a couple takes more than falling in love. It takes two healthy brains! Our unique holistic approach includes a brain health assessment, so that each one can not only understand how their own brain operates but also how their partner's brain operates. Then we apply treatment based on this far more targeted approach to couples counseling. We also offer nutritional supplementation recommendations, EMDR and biofeedback relaxation therapies along with traditional psychotherapy, to support each individual's optimal functioning. By enhancing the health and wellbeing of each, the common goal of a satisfying relationship can more easily be reached.

Couples conflict ususally results from each person not dealing with his/her own damaged emotions. I work with each person bringing healing to his/her soul (mind and emotions). Once a good degree of healing has taken place, the couple is better able to understand each other and communicate on a healthy level. Also, I offer temperament analysis which is called Creation Therapy. This enable me to share with you the unique creation genetically coded into you at the time of your conception. CT identifies your strengths and your weaknesses. CT identifies your needs and how to get them met. Couples by coming to understand each other's temperament are better able to relate.
