I believe that our love relationships are the most powerful mirror to reflect back to us the condition of our psyches. Love provides us with the courage to face our faults, weaknesses and misapprehensions and creates the impetus to change that which stands in the way of our peace, happiness and personal evolution. In my work with couples, together we view the family systems that form each partner and then we envision and create the new system of the couple relationship. Our work together fosters intimacy, communication, empathy, and most importantly, mutual respect. Whatever the outcome, honesty and love are able to flow in the safety of this environment.

When I was a student at UCONN, I learned of an article called “Bad Couples Therapy”. I learned from it that many therapists who do family therapy do not have any formal training in couple therapy. How can this be? We don’t have surgeons on the operating table without formal training in surgery, yet therapists can do it? Yes, it turns out the field of therapy isn’t as regulated as one might think. Later in graduate school, I was able to get three full-time years of formal training in marriage and family therapy. The results I’m able to offer to people were well worth the extra schooling and residency I later completed.

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?

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.

You don’t even know how long it’s been since you and your partner felt connected. Life has gotten so crazy that prioritizing togetherness falls straight to the bottom of your mental to-do list. You know you are ‘all in’. You are fully committed and want this to work. It’s just that, when the same old problems and arguments come up you start to wonder, “Why am I doing this? Is it over?” Maybe there is a crisis, you’ve been unfaithful or you discovered that your partner was, how do you pick up the pieces? How can you possibly move on? I'm here to tell you, its possible to heal. It's possible to have the life you truly want.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

As a licensed clinical psychologist, my greatest emphasis for couples is working with people individually to address how they may improve themselves so as to improve the relationship. *Or*, I may help an individual learn more effect strategies to deal with challenging relationship struggles. My partner, a licensed marriage and family therapist, works with the couple in the room simultaneously. Those seeking this help may contact me, and I will let you know if your situation is something I can help with. If it is, we can proceed to schedule a first appointment. If it is not, I will help get you set up with my partner or another therapist who does the work you require.
