Living together as a couple can enrich your life. It can also being challenging and sometimes exhausting. The challenge of living in a way that nourishes both partners is ongoing as circumstances and people change. It requires courage and focus to face your role in the relationship. Typically each person is convinced that it is the other's "fault," and if he or would change then we could live happily ever after. Sometimes it may be that simple but personally I have not seen that. Working together we can explore the flow of your particular relationship and enhance the areas where it thrives as well as release the energy around the areas where it grinds and halts.

I am a big believer in emotionally focused therapy (EFT) for couples and relationships. Attachment theory is a powerful frame of reference and one in which couples can learn to attune to their partner's needs and bring greater harmony to the relationship. I work with each partner and then come together to understand the picture as a whole. Through EFT it is entirely possible to bring new understanding to both partners so that they can re-ignite the passion and cut through the frustration of mixed messages and hurt feelings.

I approach "couples counseling" through the individuals. It's not uncommon for sessions to be divided in two. After a few individual sessions with each person I generally work with both people simultaneously, and attempt to act as a translator to the communication issues that are usually acting as a stumbling-block to a smooth relationship. Although I absolutely do NOT take sides, I will unhesitatingly challenge the person who appears inauthentic. I give homework. Generally it's fun and brings people closer together. Sometimes it's soul-searching. I want to help you achieve what you tell me you wish to achieve; that being a smooth break-up; or living happily ever after.

I work in a collaborative way with you and your partner in an open environment to allow sharing and acceptance. I encourage active listening so everyone can work together on the same page. I strive to create positive growth for each person within themselves, within the relationship and the relationship itself. You both agree to the goals you want from therapy, but I want your individual and relational growth to provide healthy resolutions in the future.

Relationships take many forms and are as varied as we are as human beings. Couples work is not always husband wife, but can range from premarital issues and preparing for life together to same sex couples. Learning the best way to communicate with each other and gain greater levels of intimacy is one of the main goals when working with couples and I strive to move your relationship to the next level.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

If you and your partner are struggling, I want to help. Using Emotion-Focused Therapy, I help you to explain to your partner those things that hurt you or leave you feeling alone, disrespected or ignored in a way that helps your partner truly understand. Once that "heart understanding" takes place, you will feel that deep connection which is part of a loving, respecting relationship that your connection once was. There IS hope, and change can take place if you and your partner want it! I would like to be your guide to that place of deep love, respect, and caring.

Alternative and Integrated Practitioner

Let me guess. One partner feels alone and like they don't matter and the other feels they are always being criticized and can't get anything right. The more one asks for the other to show up, the more the partner disappears physically and emotionally. You both bicker and fight and the idea of sitting and just hanging out seems elusive, if not impossible. Something like this? Often we crave connection but are blocked by the pain and the history that gets in the way. Small fights about little things become battles that highlight our struggle to have our basic relational needs met. I can help you get under the bickering to the parts crying out for connection- to an enriching relationship.

Couples benefit from focused work on issues of importance to them. Personality inventories, couple check ups, family-of-origin surveys with charts diagramming similarities and differences are fun, illustrative ways to understand, label, measure, and improve relationships. Gaining insight together in an understanding environment improves the way we live with each other.

There are countless models of healthy romantic relationships, from monogamous to polyamorous, and unique variations between partners. The scripts for dating and longterm relationships of our parents’ generations may not be applicable to your relationship, and there is no formal education in how to be a good partner or how to identify unhealthy relationships. But there is psychological research that shows that effective communication, emotional openness, intimacy, and other factors contribute to healthy relationships. Creating these conditions are skills that can be learned. I practice brief humanistic and emotion-focused therapy (EFT) to help my LGBTQ and hetero clients learn these skills.

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?

When there has been infidelity, or sex/porn addiction in a relationship it is difficult to ever rebuild trust. David offers THREE-DAY INTENSIVES to help couples begin the healing process and the long process of building trust. This is not for everyone because it is so intense, but for some it is a relationship saver. Doing standard 1-hour-a-week therapy just is not enough for some relationships that have been devastated by infidelity, so a THREE-DAY INTENSIVE helps get in 4-6 months of therapy to jump start the healing process. The INTENSIVE helps end lying for good, and sets up an environment where healing can begin.
