Couples therapy, done well, is very different from other forms of therapy. Problems aren't thought to be caused just by one person, but are usually seen as the result of how couples interact. There is also more importance put on helping couples learn constructive ways to deal with emotions. Good couples therapy provides a safe place to express thoughts and feelings so each person hears the others perspectives. Finally, couples therapy should improve communication, and emphasize building new problem solving and relationship repair skills. If the couples therapy you are getting isn't doing these things, you might want to look for another therapist.

When working with couples I use the Gottman approach, which involves hleping couples rebuild their friendship, improve communication, learn conflict resolution, and increase positivity in the relationship. I also teach couples ways to have those difficult conversations that are necessary part of committed relationships using clarity and diplomacy. Ultimately couples should be able to create goals and dreams, as well as plans to reach them. However, it may become apparent that the relationship has ended, and the partners can leave with the certainty that they have made an informed decision to separate.

Each of us are raised in different circumstances, and experience different parental standards or self-deveoped standards, often as a reaction to parental standards, but often through self-discovery as well. Research has also indicated that many relationships experience difficulty because of different core beliefs in several major areas such as: the handling of money; parenting/discipline methods; sexual incompatabilities regarding frequency type of sexual interaction,etc,; religion/spirituality; problem solving; self-esteem; chore sharing; spousal absence for long periods; and others. My approach is to identify the differences, develop a course of mutual agreement and compromise.

I want to help couples improve their communication and reconnect. Being able to address issues between the two of you openly and honestly without anger or upset is the ultimate goal. Using a technique called Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) which has been shown to be 70-75% effective in making lasting positive changes, reducing conflict, and bringing couples closer together.

In working with couples, I utilize an integrative approach that addresses present relational concerns, as well as explores deeper communicating patterns. Through the process of therapy, couples can learn more effective ways of communication and uncover detrimental patterns of relating to one another. This allows couples to experience a new way of being intimate in their relationship.
