All couples face challenges in a relationship. What makes some relationships last and others that don't is a combination of communication skills and commitment to making the marriage work. Many marriages test people to their limit, but that doesn't mean it's a bad marriage. If you are able to hang in there and work with a trusted professional, you can expand and grow into a more loving and nurturing person.

When couples wish to work through their relationship difficulties, or do premarital couples therapy, they will find my office to be a safe, nonjudmental, and encouraging space. You will colaborate with your spouse, and prioritize issues you'd like to discuss. You will explore your own ability for acceptance and tolerance of your spouse's behavior. We will work together on communication skills, and styles, we'll try to soften the dialogue. We'll learn about problem solving skills with which husband and wife are heard. If there are sexual problems, I have experience in treating sex addiction, internet pornography addiction, and the affect of extended families on your relationship.

A significant and ongoing relationship is hugely rewarding and worth the time and right effort. When a relationship is going poorly it can a lonely and miserable. I help couples feel safe enough to be open, and authentic. Being willing to share their experience of the relationship and deal with what is true for each person( which may be the same or may be different) is the way through difficulties. For there to be a connection there needs to be two. When someone is going along to get along or dominating/controlling the outcome of an interaction, or wanting the other person to be like they are couples get stuck. I help clients identify hurtful patterns and learn new ways of relating.
