There may be many issues that bring you to couples therapy. Additionally, there may also be fear about attending. Will the therapist take your side? Or team up on you? Will the relationship get worse? Fortunately, therapy can help you improve your relationship or gain clarity about how to move forward. I offer a balanced and non-judgmental space where couples can feel safe exploring and working on their relationship.

Maintaining a healthy long-term relationship is one of the greatest challenges we face. It is also one of the most important to our general well-being. As we are growing up, there is little guidance about how to have a good relationship. Most of us learn about relationships from watching the model our parents provide...not always the best place to learn. In recent years there has been a lot of research on what works in relationships and what doesn't. Unfortunately, much of what works does not come naturally. I can help you undo some of the damage from years of negative habits, and share the latest findings about how to achieve a happier, healthier relationship.

You fell in love with your partner, enjoyed the heady first days of the relationship, but staying in love is difficult. Your relationship isn't what it was or you want, you "can't seem to get it right", or even start. The "happily ever after" fairy tale has soured. You can reauthor your story - you know life is not a fairy tale, but the real tale is far more interesting. Therapy is not about being broken, sick or wrong. It's about growth, courage & moving forward. You can learn practical skills to create an authentic loving relationship which includes passion & intimacy as well as caring & communication. It is exciting & joyful to rediscover your feelings for each other.

I help couples in therapy to discuss their problems in order to work issues out in a calm way. If one or both of you need one-to-one therapy, it will be recommended, each seeing a different therapist. With more understanding of oneself, it will be easier to see the other's point of view and to compromise. In couples or marriage counseling I help you both to recognize projections so that you may relate to each other in a healthier way.

Most issues that couples experience includes combative or competitive responses rather than working as a team, trust issues, comunication and sexual problems, and a variety of specific conflicts that are unique to that relationship. Therapy can restore more positive feelings that may have dissipated over time and facilitate an empathic connnection so that the couple is sharing their journey rather than engaging in continuous adverserial conflict.
