Couples are my passion! When was the last time you had an open conversation with your partner about sex? About emotional intimacy? About communication? We look at the negative cycle that has swallowed you both up, causing stress and disconnection. I am also an affair specialist and have worked with countless couples to sift through the incredible pain to see if there is anything left of the relationship to be salvaged (in many cases, there is). I have met many couples who come in as roommates, where deep wounds are present. Couples feel like my office is a safe place to share, connect, get questions answered and get the professional help that they have needed.

"We just don't communicate" is what I frequently hear from couples. Is there something more? Usually, yes. What can really be happening? Anger, resentment, feeling alone in a relationship,hurt feelings, finances, infidelity, addiction, overwhelmed with child raising, stress, phew. All of these issues and others can take a toll on couples. Sometimes we all need help to sort through problems. Therapy can help. Giving ourselves permission to receive help, is half the battle. To accept therapy means you value your relationship enough to try. Therapy does not have to be long term and we can work together to decide on your goals.

My approach to working with couples begins with seeing both clients together to gain an understanding of their dynamic as well as the individual issues (including family of origin) that have brought them into therapy. I then help them determine their goals as a couple and develop a treatment plan, including empathic listening, relationship exercises, and communications counseling, that will help them achieve their objectives.

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?

Communication and respect are often considered the cornerstones of a fruitful relationship. However, often times couples loose sight of the things that initially brought them together. Spending hours talking to and listening to their significant other, date nights, movie nights and outings with friends and family. These treasures often get pushed aside when the reality of life gets set in motion. I work with couples in clearly defining the goals and objectives of their relationships, addressing challenging misconceptions, infidelity, family and work related issues. Couples who work hard and develop clear goals often reap the benefits of better communication, intimacy and love.

A couple is two individuals coming together to build a positive engagement called a relationship. Couples therapy will provide a non-judgmental environment where the two individuals can talk through their daily concerns and issues, and with the help of the therapist create positive healthy coping skills to make this engagement/relationship more positive and meaningful.
