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.

One of my expertise is to help couples. I provide counseling to couples who are in conflict and are at the verge of a break up. I also provide pre-marital counseling. In both cases, I first like to examine one member at a time. I determine the problem and make sure that there is no mental illness in one member who might be largely contributing to the marital conflict.

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. Our counselors, at Chris....

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.

Couples in conflict need noticeable results right away. This help restore a sense of hope that their marriage relationship can recover. This is what I work towards in the first session. After each session I give an action assignment for the couple to work at to lay the foundation for a marriage that can thrive. In couples' counseling I work for the health of your relationship over siding with any one individual. Sometimes that will mean asking you to look at how you're contributing to the conflict and other times it will be to help your partner hear what you're saying. In both cases, couples' counseling is a safe space for you and your partner to work through and resolve lingering conflicts.

Every couple has their differences. The key is in learning how to address and manage those differences. In couple’s therapy, couples learn not only to cope with each other’s differences, but also how to better communicate with one another. So often communication can be difficult to couples, which is why learning communication skills is an important, and integral part of therapy. Couple will also learn ways to cope with other issues they may be having.

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?

Our couples counseling focuses on addressing the problematic communication and interaction patterns that tend to operate unseen in our relationships. We see the relationship as the client. This perspective allows us to primarily view the issues in terms of how they function within the relationship. Our sessions do not seek to blame the individual – instead we look at how things support or hurt the relationship. Together we build on the strengths already present while addressing problematic issues that are barriers to fulfilling connections. As Carl Bard said: “You can’t go back and make a brand new start, but you can start from now and make a brand new ending.”

Couples work is challenging but I enjoy it. I like to help people improve how they relate to each other; communicate better; work through conflicts; and connect on a deeper level. I'm also very non-judgmental and help couples work through complicated issues they sometimes have a hard time finding a therapist for such as exploring sexual boundaries or non-traditional relationship issues. Unfortunately - sometimes it's also about ending a relationship and using the therapist to help navigate a "friendly divorce" rather than an acrimonious one.
