When we deal with couple counseling it is important to recognize that the functioning of the relationship of the couple is the primary concern. If an individual problem makes this impossible then a separate therapist can be assigned as in the case of an alcohol dependent person who is abusive may need to treat his alcohol dependence before the couple can look at and adjust the relationship as it relates to the effect the alcohol had on it. Good communication skills and skills specific to the couple are primary as each couple has its own dynamic and world view just as we see in individuals being unique. There are no "canned" treatments for something as unique as a relationship.

Having a partner with whom to walk through life can be a beautiful thing. Research shows that people in happy relationships have a more robust immune system, suffer from fewer mental and physical disorders, live longer, and remain more independent well into old age than their single counterparts. But when that relationship is damaged, it can be devastating. My goal with couples is to facilitate clear and open communication, increase feelings of tenderness and emotional intimacy and, along with it, the sense of emotional safety between the partners. Restoring closeness can help the couple find their way back to each other and provide a safe environment wherein love can once again grow.
