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.

Deciding to share your life with someone else is a lovely thing - until you realize that that person may have their own agenda, and that you're each making all sorts of demands on the other - some of which may be totally irrational. Learn how to communicate your wants after creating a space within your relationship to be totally open and honest with each other. 21st Century Couples may not look like your grandparents relationship - so don't worry about the therapist moralizing you to death - it ain't gonna happen here!

Relationships account for such a large amount of our time, energy and emotions. I believe they also reflect so much of how we see God and how He works in and through us. I am convinced you can experience a fruitful and joyful relationship no matter how many challenges you face or burdens you feel from the past. This can happen in the context of a relationship where openness and forgiveness are working hand in hand. I really enjoy working with couples and have found a lot of success in helping in the process of healing and redeeming relationships and marriages.

The communication technique that I will teach you will deepen your relationship and bring you closer. Your partner and you will learn to hear and validate each other's experiences, feelings, and needs. In this way, you will have a tool to use in your life together so that you can solve most issues without seeking outside help. Most couples can learn this technique in 8-10 sessions. I will encourage you to practice together at home, starting with simple issues. We will focus on behaviors that each would like to see changed in the other partner and identify feelings around those behaviors. We will also clarify what behaviors you would like to see in their place. This will be deeply rewarding.

Relationships are never easy...they involve merging of two lives into one while continuing to be true to who you are and not losing your individuality. Whether you're struggling with communication problems, value differences, infidelity, want more depth of emotional intimacy, or simply want pre-marital counseling, I am here to help you. I work with couples in a collaborative way, giving them new skills in the session that are to be practiced outside of the session, so that lasting changes can take place more quickly.

I believe that the greatest cause of strife in relationships is that people lose focus on the relationship and start focusing on themselves. Current culture is constantly hammering us to get “our needs met”. However, for a couple in trouble, both members end up obsessively demanding their needs get met while making those demands in ways that almost guarantee that they won’t get met. When we focus on the health of our relationship, we are much more effective in getting our own needs met. Couples counseling can be appropriate for marital and pre-marital counseling, but also for sibling, co-worker, or/or adult parent/child relationships.

Couple relationships are always a challenge. Most couples experience both ups and downs as a normal part of their lives; but if your "ups" and "downs" are becoming more and more serious and destructive to your lives, then it's probably time to get some outside help. Are you ready to work cooperatively and collaboratively with your partner? Then call today for professional guidance and healing.

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.
