What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings?

Without conflict, couples do not achieve intimacy. The challenge is helping you and your partner learn how to have healthy conflict that leads to intimacy, rather than destructive conflict that destroys the relationship. While I work with all couples, I specialize in working with neuro-diverse couples. I usually start with helping you learn ground rules for being able to have safe, constructive, healthy conflict to reduce and eliminate destructive relational patterns. I also use Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) to help you reconnect, learn healthy communication skills, rekindle the flame that you once had, and start talking to each other again. If you are willing to work, I am here for you!

Understanding oneself is first. Secondly is understanding your partner. Using Gottman methods and working through his books have been useful in treating couples. I find the materials enhance the therapy process. Love language education and understanding different temperaments are useful. They are desperate to communicate and yet there are roadblocks.I have often referred to myself as a translator between men and women.

Why do we seem to have the same arguments over and over again? How do I know if we are really supposed to be together? Are there things we could be doing to better support each other, to help each other grow and be our best selves? If we really love each other, why do we so often hurt each other? How do I know if this is real love, anyway? Relationships are hard. Even more than desire, they require effort and understanding to make them work. Often, even if two people really love each other, one or both may need help to maintain the right effort or understanding to keep the balance necessary for long-term success. Having outside, objective support can make all the difference.

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

I love working with couples. I believe that many of our issues and misunderstandings in relationships are based in a lack of feeling safe within the couple. Together we will explore the rules and roles of relating that you bring with you from your family of origin and how those 'dictates' influence your current behavior with your partner. We also take an in-depth look at your attachment history, looking how loved and supported you felt with your primary caregivers and again how these early bonds inform your present bond. I will support you in creating a safe and loving 'home' for your relationship, a safe space where you know your partner has your back.
