It’s important to understand how we unknowingly bring our past into our current relationships. Learn habits to communicate better, argue in a healthy manner, resolve conflict, productively expression emotions, share your needs/wants clearly, work through unresolved issues, and negotiate change in your relationship. Also examine how to rekindle intimacy while understanding and embracing your partner’s flaws.

Your relationship is my client. We we will look what is working and what is not working. We will look not only at the way you communicate, but the message under the communication. Research tells us 85% of communication is non-verbal, so the message behind the words is critical to explore. There are other proven ways such as the research of John Gottman and Susan Johnson.

Cohabiting couples are at greater risk for separation or divorce if they later decide to marry unless they have plans to become engaged and marry after living together. Pre-marital counseling is also helpful in identifying potential areas of stress, including finances, career, housework, children, travel and family gatherings. Many times couples wait until it is almost too late. We help both partners identify their wants and needs in the relationship and decide if they want to work on the marriage, separate or divorce. For divorcing parents, we provide co-parenting services to help establish guidelines, teach conflict resolution skills and minimize harm to their children.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

People see the word "Couples" and think it is just for married people. It is for those who are dating, living together, roommates, best friends, and those who are married. The common theme here is that there are two of you and you share some form of a relationship. We are created for connection, to be in relationship with others. That does not always go smoothly. Relationships take work and sometimes it is helpful to have a third party who has experience in dealing with differences and communication. Most issues I see come down to those two things and are easy to work with. ** I also provide premarital counseling.

You will find most, if not all, of your friends and loved ones will be a friend to you or your partner. This is especially true in extreme stress, such as separation. Here, I am a friend to your relationship, whether the goal is healing or divorce, or deciding which route to take. I do not look for the guilty party. This is not a court. We will learn to exonerate each other and those who have chosen sides.

Is the honeymoon over? Sometimes daily responsibilities, stress, or crisis can take the romance out of relationships. When a relationship is strong there is honesty, love and confidence that your spouse will be there when you most need them. Don't let your relationship suffer until there is no recovery. I work with couples who want to reconnect, or work on communication, conflict resolution, and other issues to keep their relationship strong or rebuild what they once shared. Whatever the state of your relationship, your decision to engage in counseling is a positive step toward creating a loving, supportive relationship with your partner.

As a couple therapist I will work to provide you an understanding of what is going on in your relationship that is causing distress. I have extensive training in the Gottman Method and will also draw upon my knowledge of Dr. Sue Johnson's work in Emotion Focused Therapy.
