Relationships are important in our lives. Significant others have an even greater role. When we allow external variables to impact our priority relationships, distance can grow. Through our counseling relationship, intimacy, communication, trust, and mutual respect may be strengthened. Couples counseling may involve both individuals but is not required to initiate services.

Being part of a relationship can be very satisfying in many ways. However, when that relationship begins to change and the partners no longer feel the same, problems appear to become greater than what they can handle.

My main goal is to foster a safe therapeutic alliance to enhance engagement in the change process; to access, unfold, and expand emotional responses in an attachment context; and to choreograph response sequences to help restructure key interactions between the couple.

Couples Therapy is often seen as different from psychotherapy, because a relationship is the focus of attention instead of one individual diagnosed with a specific psychological problem. Couples Therapy focuses on the problems existing in the relationship between two people, but these relationship problems always involve individual symptoms and problems, as well as the relationship conflicts. For example, if you ar constantly arguing with your spouse, you will probably also be chronically anxious, angry, or depressed, (or all three).
