COUPLES ISSUES
In couples work, I provide assistance with:

HOW I WORK
I employ a collaborative style with my clients, asking them for feedback and encouraging them to share their knowledge of themselves and their relationship with me, and to let me know when my ideas or suggestions are helpful or useful or when they are less so. I find that this approach leads to more effective therapy and strengthens the client-therapist bond which is necessary for healing and improvement.
