While traditional 45-minutes-a-week talk therapy teaches communication skills, many couples can communicate perfectly well until their emotions get in the way. When your emotions hit an 8 or a 9 on a 0-10 scale, all of your communication skills instantly disappear. This is why, for couples with strong emotional reactions, traditional therapy can actually make things worse. I use 3-HOUR SESSIONS to help you identify and strengthen the positive parts of your relationship, eliminate the hot-buttons that drag you into those old vicious-circle arguments filled with hurt, anger or resentment and to develop the right emotional climate for healthy and productive communication

Being a part of a couple is a challenging experience. It can be full of joy and wonder and even bliss, but it can also be painful and unhealthy and miserable. All human beings long for a secure attachment to another, but it is sometimes difficult to make that happen. My approach is based on three important principals: 1) there needs to equality in a relationship with mutual respect, 2) we are all very different from each other even if we share many interests and have common backgrounds, 3) we need to have an ongoing dialog throughout our relationship dealing with those differences with good communication skills. In many ways a couple relationship or marriage is like a laboratory for growth a

I love to work with couples, and find that they are both individuals with a different set of DNA. I work with the couples to help improving communication, intimacy, and to resolve their differences. I also work with couples who are separating to better understand the emotional grieving, and change that they will be transitioning too, and its effects on the family and how to cope with those effects.

In couples therapy couples learn to identify and stop the recurring patterns in the relationship that cause hurt, rejection, and feelings of abandonment. Once this occurs couples are safe enough to learn a new way to communicate without judgement or blaming. The ability to identify deeper more vulnerable needs and feelings leads to a sense of trust and a bond of secure connection. We all have baggage that can interfere with closeness until we can resolve what is necessary.

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.

Our LMFTs and licensed professionals work with couples to reduce conflict, change behavior, change your responses to your partner’s behavior, find realistic and practical solutions, and empower you as a couple to make a terrific life together. This differs from marriage counseling because we provide advice and/or show you how to develop your own rational solutions by dealing with problems in each of your histories that may be creating unhealthy patterns of relating.

Couples are dyads formed of exclusion. They conspire, they are rude. it's much better, particularly for girls, to act independently. I enjoy my role as Minister because it affords me the "promiscuity" I require in order to get to know everyone! No significant other would tolerate my wish to join in unspecified groups. Fit in, I do all by myself. I wouldn't really consider trading. my celibacy nor sharing. my soapbox with any other.

I have passion for helping couples overcome resentments and misunderstandings to create connection. I do this by helping each person discover and honestly express what is really going on for them and I ensure that the other has heard. I help my couples set goals for the relationship and understand each others' needs. I help increase the positivity in the relationship to transform the current dynamic and maintain good will which then motivates individuals to look at themselves and make and maintain changes for the sake of the relationship. Couples of all kinds will have an enhanced relationship after our work. If children happen to be involved, they will benefit, too!

The newest research on happiness makes clear something we all really know: that our closest relationships are the source of the greatest happiness and joy, meaning and purpose in our lives. Our significant other, our partner, our husband or wife is the person who knows us best, better than anyone. For all the same reasons, when difficulties come between you and your partner, it can seriously erode your happiness, and breakdowns in communication, building resentments, frustratingly repetitive arguments are very distressing. Nobody want this to happen; "Then why does it never seem that we're on the same page?" Consider couples counseling as a way to start a positive cycle ...
