Couples have dreams that they share, but when they reach my office, they are in pain. Sad, and often discouraged, they don't know how to negotiate the necessities, and well as the sweetness of their relationship. Like any endeavor with others, GOAL and COOPERATION delivered with CONSISTENT KINDNESS are essential. There is a song, the title, "Doing Dishes Leads to Kisses". Indeed, working together harmoniously and lightheartedly builds trust. Adding to that the ingredient "Understanding how I feel, and caring about it," and "Letting me know that I matter to you", can take a couple back to the sweetest times again. Now her 's a toast, my dear couple, to "The Joy of Love". It's possible.

I will help you transform your relationship to a place of healing, strength and renewal, enabling you to nurture that which you love. I will assist you to improve communication skills, conflict resolution skills, emotional and sexual intimacy and negotiate your needs more effectively in your relationship. I will help you to discover how unresolved issues from the past get displaced into your current situation and how to resolve this. You will learn how your partner needs to be shown love and he/she will learn to reciprocate. Learning how to love your partner and understanding what makes your partner tick is the foundation to a happier, healthier and secure relationship.

Even couples who have weathered 50 years together report going through times of severe marital dissatisfaction. Through utilizing strategies and tools to communicate better, couples can learn to resolve or make peace with their differences. You will benefit by having a chance to practice new ways of relating to each other in session, and then taking exercises home to work on through the week. I create a safe atmosphere for each person to be vulnerable and honest about what changes you would like to see in your future, and then I help facilitate a conversation where you and your partner make small practical steps towards finding peace and happiness together.

We all want to love, be loved, and connect with our significant others. Yet, it can feel daunting at times, due to repetitive relationship patterns (influenced by our childhood wounding), poor communication skills, cultural/gender differences, and inability to negotiate “me” with “we”. So be it past trauma, poor communication skills, inability to handle stress, different upbringing (thereby different ways of doing things), or sexual challenges, among other things, I help couples identify the areas/habits which challenge them, behaviors which destroy relationships, and anything else that stands in the way of them achieving an intimate connection.

Family Therapy and Couple's and Sexual Therapy are the clinical intervention to better the interpersonal relationships, and the dynamic interaction among the members of a family or a couple. It is not necessary to wait until the problem turns into something major to consult the specialist. In fact, it is logical to consult when what worries you is only a concern, and not to wait until the problem becomes a psychopathological entity. The problems of adult life such as those that are related to the couple, the sexual problems, the infidelities, separations, divorces and their aftermath, require the early intervention of the clinical psychologist so that you may live fully.

Relationships are tricky and often emotionally charged. Communication plays an important role in couples relationships, but not to be discounted is the powerful role of emotions and feelings that may be unconsidered. I look forward to helping couples begin to understand themselves, the positive and negative cycles, and the process necessary to truly understand the core needs of themselves and their partner. I believe that couples often have the power to heal their relationships and even their partner when they begin to feel that their own needs are respected, and I look forward to working with you to achieve your relational goals.

Are you feeling overwhelmed in your marriage or relationship? You find yourself heartbroken, hurt and all alone. You were once loved and valued, but now all that left is regret, resentment, and a feeling of being completely stuck… I have a wealth of experience working with couples find their ways to re-connect to each other emotionally, or help them rebuild after crises such as infidelity, child loss or infertility.
