Do you believe that counseling is just for unhappy couples? Counseling gives each partner involved: basic tools and strategies to enrich their communication: show respect for their partner, as well as themselves; and grow in healthy ways. It can be a valuable addition to any relationship. Counseling is a priceless opportunity for couples who want to build a healthy and long-lasting relationship. With the growing number of unsatisfied couples in relationship, counseling or coaching from a professional can be the crucial step for improving your relationship, helping each of you work on key concerns that are causing conflict, and working towards progress with each session.

Couples counseling shares many of the same dynamics as family therapy. Each individual brings to the relationship their own unique view of the world as learned in their family of origin. As couples grow together, they may become stuck in repeated dysfunctional patterns and can fail to see their own part in the issues. I work to help couples open their communication and their hearts to the changes that can be achieved.

There are many different types of couples with whom I work - Traditional, Re-Married After Being Widowed, Step-Families, Gay, Lesbian, Transgender. Each couple and each relationship is special and unique. Therefore, the strategies we use to improve, change or dissolve/uncouple the relationship will be distinct for each pair of partners and will be based on the partners' goals.

Couples counseling in one of my areas of expertise. Many clinicians refer couples to me because of my years of success in working with this population. I believe each couple brings in their own unique set of circumstances, thus I do not use one standard "formula" in my approach. You will find your time in therapy with me as an experience of feeling respected, being deeply understood, with the ultimate result of positive and constructive change in your relationship. Are you ready to find fulfillment and joy in your partnership? If so, then please contact me at your convenience.

Some of my clients call it a gift. I know it is my passion. Couples counseling is a perfect fit for me. I get energized whenever a new couple comes to see me. As a communication, relational specialist, I get to know my couples individually and as a couple by taking time to carefully listen and understand them. This allows me the opportunity to help them understand each other and where they are likely stuck in their relationship. Once I identify the negative pattern, I assist the couple in shifting the pattern into one that is mutually respectful, caring, accommodating, and enriching. As a result of my extensive couples work I am currently writing a book on respectful relationships.

Couples experience and bring into their relationships past histories of emotional and cognitive issues that impact on their current relationship. When events occur that cause distress couple can experience intense and deep pain over the new developments or opening of old wounds. Treatment therefore needs to encompass their capacities to handle and overcome these experiences that interfere with their intimacy and closeness.

Entering into a new relationship can be hard. It requires work. The work may cause challenges that are small and big. In couples therapy, couples learn how to work together on their challenges. Through coaching, they learn techniques that work for them to help them to better communicate. . They will learn what their strengths are and their weaknesses as a couple.

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?
