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?

Couples work is challenging but I enjoy it. I like to help people improve how they relate to each other; communicate better; work through conflicts; and connect on a deeper level. I'm also very non-judgmental and help couples work through complicated issues they sometimes have a hard time finding a therapist for such as exploring sexual boundaries or non-traditional relationship issues. Unfortunately - sometimes it's also about ending a relationship and using the therapist to help navigate a "friendly divorce" rather than an acrimonious one.

I enjoy working with couples whether whether married or not. I enjoy the dynamic of interpersonal relationship and work well with couples in improving communication and conflict resolution. Another value for me when working with couples is to help them enjoy each other and their relationship more including having fun, connectedness, and learning to celebrate the way each is wired differently.

Marriage is a rather fragile bond; love is never enough to spare it from major let-downs. Sooner or later, stress and frictions slowly and insidiously intrude into the relationship bliss, leading to let downs and conflicts. Conflicts are often the unsuccessful attempts to take back the sense of control and connection that have been lost in the midst. Unfortunately, these unsuccessful attempts only give rise to anger, bitterness, and unhappiness; sometimes to separation or divorce. The riddle is in the interaction pattern. And the vicious cycle repeats. Through counseling, couples can alter their interaction patterns, learn connection skills, and feel closer with each other again.

Couples therapy is akin to marriage counseling for me. Again I try to address any underlying issues and like to see each partner seperately at least once. Often times one person is in crisis and the couples relationsip is seriously affected. Sometimes it's a matter of helping one person to learn how to support the other and to help foster healthier communication.

Relationships are built on pillars of trust and aligning values. I utilize John Gottman's research on marital stability in my practice. I also focus on the use of Gary Chapman's five love languages as a way to explore whether each person is getting his/her needs met most effectively in the relationship. I typically work with younger couples who have not yet entered into the sacrament of marriage or are recently married.

What are the barriers to your individual and shared experience of life? What are the factors that can best aid you in achieving your desire for a harmonious union in your relationship. Frequently communication is a starting point that reflects individual challenges in effectively addressing emotional needs, forms of co-dependency, and long-standing ineffective habits. Working from treatment methods informed by the treatment theories of John Gottman, I seek to help clients learn to speak and interact in ways that reflect their vision for the relationship and not the unexamined habits of the past.
