I work with couples who wish to improve their relationship and couples who are uncertain about what they want. I believe that most couples can (re)establish happy relationships if both truly wish to remain together because of their feelings about and attitude towards the other person. Improving communication, helping each partner between understand the other, negotiating compromise, and bringing more validation and affirmation of each other into the marriage are often major areas of focus, I see couples together as well as individuals who wish for better understanding of their relationships and guidance as to changes they can make independently to better their relationships.

Each individual comes from a rich background of experiences and cultural messages which ultimately leads to misunderstandings in communication. Couples counseling allows for a place for each person to explore and present their views in a safe and validating environment. From there it is then possible to map out goals as a team and address those underlying issues which show up in a relationship over and over.

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?

Your relationship has the potential to become a place where you can bring more joy and happiness into your life. Couples therapy is the most challenging of therapies due to the emotional intensity of the couple’s dynamics. When both members of a couple are committed to repairing the relationship, working with a skilled clinician is highly rewarding and successful. Couples entering counseling who have a mixed agenda where splitting up is a possibility, need help to discern and determine their goals. I see couples together as well as individually, and work with them to determine what would need to change for them achieve increased affection and the closeness they had when they first met.

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.
