Throughout our lives we absorb the myth that once you find “The One,” everything falls into place and you live happily ever after. Though ridiculously simplistic, it is amazing how some version of this myth sinks deep into our bones. When discord or conflict arise, we think that something must be fundamentally wrong and doubt that this is “The One” after all. My goal as a couples therapist is to debunk that myth. Conflict, struggles, even crisis definitely do not feel good, but they are a natural part of healthy relationships. Commit to each other anew – discover how to use these struggles as a doorway to the profound growth and intimacy that is truly possible in your relationship.

Are you experiencing relationship problems but your partner is uninterested in couple’s counseling? Individual relationship counseling is highly effective for healing personal relationship challenges (e.g. commitment and abandonment fears, past betrayal, unfulfilling relationships, loneliness, emotional reactivity, trouble expressing feelings) and for developing healthy relationship skills (communication, boundaries, comfort with vulnerability, handling resentments, increasing empathy). Imagine how well your relationship could function or how much more successful you could be in your next relationship if you worked through the individual relationship issues that are causing your problems.

So much of what makes a couple successful comes from careful listening and clearly communicating wants, needs and experience. It is easy to fall into the trap of making incorrect assumptions, letting misunderstandings fester and forgetting what you loved about your partner in the first place! The benefit of working with me is that I can provide the safe space to explore and fix how you might be organizing around each other in a way that results in frustration, confusion and anger. We can work with each other and get back on track!

I use an excellent tool called, "Prepare Enrich" to assess and strengthen relationship issues for married, engaged, or unmarried couples. Each partner will take a relationship assessment online and then I will go over the information with you together. Items assessed are: relationship styles, dynamics, sexuality, finances, stress profile and more. You can learn more about Prepare Enrich here: https://www.prepare-enrich.com

I work with couples where either one or both partners are Highly Sensitive People (HSP). Relationship issues can be compounded when high sensitivity is a factor and the couple misunderstands the cause. In working with me both individuals will complete a "sensitivity profile" to understand where each of their needs and gifts can support each other and where conflicts may be anticipated. Often the couple simply needs help in developing creative living strategies to honor the needs of each member, but in other cases more depth work around the communication process is necessary and we work to deepen intimacy by developing empathic listening, sharing, disclosing and clear request skills.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

16780 Bryant Road, Lake Oswego, Oregon 97035 | (503)752-4478

The bond formed between two people is as unique as the individuals. The bond is special and cherished. However, whenever two lives are joined together communication breakdowns, hurt feelings, and conflict are likely to follow. The relationship that is most important to you is threatened. The person whom you have laughed and grown with has changed in your eyes. You are confused; you want your relationship back; you want your partner back. Couples Counseling is an effective way to learn new ways of communicating with your partner and redefine the intimate bond with each other.

Individuals who are experiencing difficulties in their relationship are often reacting to their spouse through the lens of a recent or distant breach of trust or attachment to a significant other. This way of looking at and treating relationship pain is termed Emotionally-Focused Couple's Therapy. Couples who are willing to come to the therapy room and identify the harmful patterns of interaction in their relationship and co-create with their spouses new, trusting, and loving patterns will often benefit from the work they put in in order to support a relationship that is very important to them.

Marriage and Family Therapist

3537 N Williams Ave. , Portland , Oregon 97227 | (971) 266-4679

Many of the couples I see come to me for the following reasons: they have become more like roommates rather than a romantic couple, inability to trust one another, jealousy in the relationship, unfulfilling sexual or emotional intimacy, intense yelling and arguing, general dissatisfaction, an episode of infidelity, navigating divorce or separation. It can feel both hopeful and scary for couples to explore these issues in their relationship. Our work will explore why your relationship is exhibiting its pattern, give you tips and strategies to abate and extinguish unhealthy cycles, and achieve and maintain the relationship you want.
