Relationships are tricky. They can create the most joyful feelings in the world, and they can create tremendous hurt and feelings of uncertainty.

It is natural to long for a sense of emotional safety, deep connection and partnership. You should have fun, laugh, work together and share affection and intimacy. But sometimes, that just doesn’t come easy.

Wouldn’t it be great to have a much closer, more intimate, and deeper relationship? Or to feel heard and respected even in moments of disagreement.

Couples therapy has come a long way in the past 20 years. Back then, the quickest way to get divorced was to go see a couples therapist! It is sad, but true! The effectiveness of couples therapy back in the 90s was only about 16%. Now, because of years of deep clinical research and rigorous scientific study, the effectiveness of couples therapy is around 75% to 85%. This means that your relationship can be better.

  •           You can repair areas that have been damaged by betrayal.
  •           You can overcome the feeling that you have grown apart.
  •           You can learn to draw closer during major life traumas.
  •            You can transition back to a joyful relationship.

I am very fortunate to have trained under couples therapy guru’s including, Dr. John Gottman, Dr. Julie Gottman, Dr. Susan Johnson and other research-based leaders who have dedicated their careers to bettering the education around couples therapy.

My role in couples therapy is to guide you through research-based techniques in a confidential and compassionate environment.
