About half of my clients are couples seeking help in their relationship. I help each partner to take responsibility for their contribution to the issues and difficulties that bring a couple to therapy. "Communication" is the most commonly mentioned issue. The couple learns how to argue fairly, how to express their needs and desires effectively, and how to listen to each other. Sometimes they accomplish these things very quickly, while in other cases it takes a considerable amount of time.

I believe in the power of an effective family. They can be our greatest refuge and sanctuary in the times of storm. Families can sometimes become "stuck" when the system isn't allowed to grow and develop appropriately and when boundaries are not effectively implemented, understood and respected. I will work with you and your family to resolve conflict, understand and then build upon your strengths.

The basis of society is the family. Growing up around other people, we learn how to treat one another and what to expect from the world. When there is conflict in our households, every family member has the potential to carry that conflict or attitude out into the world-- our schools, workplaces, the playgrounds, even into our churches. Family therapy can diagnose and treat the conflicts that we all encounter from time to time.
