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 value and have a passion for all relationships to thrive. I successfully work with couples to enhance the quality of their relationship, and together discover better solutions to whatever is creating their dilemma or source of dissatisfaction. Being a couple is a tender, tentative, and promising bond. Yet it does not customarily benefit from the uniting, binding, and blending societal glue of law, traditions, religion, economics, or even language. Nevertheless, your relationship is meaningful, valuable, supportive, loving, and needing to flourish with fresh growth and deeper roots. Visit me at PhillyFamilyLifeCounseling.com; allow me to join with you to help create new possibilities.

Couples often need help in foundational skills including communication and boundaries. Most recently, Emotionally Focused Marital Therapy has been refined to create a formula that works well with couples at any point in their relationship, provided each is willing to work towards healing. Healthy Relationships will always require work from both parties.

I specialize in working with couples that want to enhance their communication skills. I look at the strengths of each partner and how they function together in a relationship. My approach utilizes emotionally focused therapy, aimed at looking at interaction patterns and emotional states. We all deserve to be in a relationship that we find fulfilling and meets our needs.

Do you find yourself wanting more for your current relationship? Are you desiring more closeness, intimacy and emotional connection with your partner? In the course of a relationship you may find that you are experiencing more frequent arguing and less frequent positive communication, but not sure why. I help couples gain insight into patterns and cycles that are keeping them stuck and unhappy. I have received training and use Gottman Method Couples Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy in my therapy work with couples. These therapies are very effective in helping couples repair, renew and restore their relationships to previous levels of love, caring and closeness.

It is not easy being part of a couple. Two different people with two separate egos, and various wants, needs, preferences, and desires. Doing the work to become an effective couple is not for sissies. It requires a great deal of courage to honestly reveal who we are to our partner. My approach to working with couples helps them create the conditions for fostering an accepting, respectful, and honest relationship.

Relationship counseling is the process of counseling the parties of a relationship in an effort to recognize and to better manage or reconcile troublesome differences and repeating patterns of distress. The relationship involved may be between members of a family or a couple (see also family therapy), employees or employers in a workplace, or between a professional and a client. Somehow the simple act of walking while talking out life’s issues creates an environment of possibility and change - of forward movement. Through the rhythm of walking and talking there is a sync between myself and my clients. At a moderate pace, healing and breakthroughs occur.

I believe couples work is about finding common ground, letting go of resentment and old hostility, and recognizing its not about who is right or wrong. We can reconnect with new communication skills to regain the connection from early in the relationship. Often recognizing that a relationship needs nourishing is difficult, and once realized making a call for help is even more so.

Couples counseling is my specialty, and what I most enjoy doing. I am Pro-Marriage, and work hard to help couples who want to stay together learn how to do so. I have completed Level 2 of training in Gottman Couples Therapy which utilizes a well-researched system of technique that can help couples move on from affairs, lack of intimacy and stale parallel marriages. The sessions are very interactive with the focus on processing present struggles, and re-examining past stumbling blocks to explore alternative ways to behave with each other. Couples are always seen together so that there is no story-telling and the focus is on the couple in a fair and balanced way.

There is a common expectation that couples' counseling must focus on improving communication. I have found that problematic patterns of communication can certainly play a role in some dysfunctional relationships and can be corrected at a later point in counseling. Couples' therapy needs to begin by addressing the core factor that sabotages all other attempts to heal the relationship - the lack of respect! Not love, not honesty, not compromise; but to truly experience the other as an independent human being whose world-view and needs are taken into consideration in all one's decisions and actions. Respect, in its deepest and varied expressions, is the key to creating a successful relationship
