As a licensed clinical psychologist, my greatest emphasis for couples is working with people individually to address how they may improve themselves so as to improve the relationship. *Or*, I may help an individual learn more effect strategies to deal with challenging relationship struggles. My partner, a licensed marriage and family therapist, works with the couple in the room simultaneously. Those seeking this help may contact me, and I will let you know if your situation is something I can help with. If it is, we can proceed to schedule a first appointment. If it is not, I will help get you set up with my partner or another therapist who does the work you require.

When I was a student at UCONN, I learned of an article called “Bad Couples Therapy”. I learned from it that many therapists who do family therapy do not have any formal training in couple therapy. How can this be? We don’t have surgeons on the operating table without formal training in surgery, yet therapists can do it? Yes, it turns out the field of therapy isn’t as regulated as one might think. Later in graduate school, I was able to get three full-time years of formal training in marriage and family therapy. The results I’m able to offer to people were well worth the extra schooling and residency I later completed.

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 in a relationship with someone can provide feelings of love and happiness, but also comes with its share of challenges. Everyone is different and when we become a couple, we must learn to accept the other individual for who they are. With couples therapy it is essential to explore the maladaptive patterns in the relationship and to truly listen to one another. My approach with couples therapy is to join with the both members in a open, safe and non-judgmental environment to help provide insight, support and new strategies for all types of life's challenge

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.

Helping couples to grow together in their relationship, one for the other, is a most exciting process. People grow as individuals in a social context. When two people grow together in trust they each maximize the growth potential of the other. When couples have struggles that challenge their union each is invited to invest more intimately in their relationship. Fears can be conquered and belief in the other can be increased greatly. Communication can be improved immensely as well.
