Relationships can be complex. Each individual has their own set of needs, wants, hopes and dreams. In couples counseling we explore the relationship, what has been working, and how to work through the "knots" so that you can experience more moments of joy, connection and increase the love for one another. I work with couples who are either looking forward to begin "coupling", are wanting to have more interest in their relationship, couples experiencing disconnect, as well as couples who are wondering if their relationship can last. In couples counseling, we look at all the components, patterns, love languages and together, create a pathway, as well as steps to healthy change.

Marriages and relationships have a core: the connection and bond between the two. When it's weak or untended-to, the strife and arguments begin. Help is needed to get to the core, hit the essential issues and needs, and many of the symptoms fade. For many, each spouse has a past, history, and baggage they carry into the relationship. It's a roadblock between you two, preventing connection and happiness. When removed, the relationship thrives.

All couples endure the pulls of difference of opinion, contradictory goals, feelings, and betrayals, sometimes ever so slight. But when unattended to, when communication has become challenged or when there is an infidelity or other actions that betray trust it is natural to seek assistance. My goal is that both of you feel respected for who you are and what you would like to achieve in your lives. However, the process of discovery can be incredibly challenging, if not painful. Acceptance, forgiveness, change - these can seem impossible to imagine at times, but can be achieved. Some couples desire to improve their relationships, and others to end them with respect and clear communication.

I utilize an approach that is geared at recognizing several key components in romantic relationships: perception, expectations, roles, commitment, empathy, compromise, and ability to let go of what was in the past. This is achieved by examining communication and interaction with one another. I utilize games, regular assignments, reading materials and gauge the commitment by participants to help create change.

Couples counseling brings a third person - the therapist – into the dyad in hopes of clarifying or resolving conflict that threatens the integrity of the two-person relationship. Patterns can develop in a relationship that are hard to identify without an independent listener. Fears and needs from early life often unknowingly influence how we experience our partner. Learning to know your partner’s strengths and weaknesses as seen through the lens of a trained listener can help you see each other in a new differently.

It can take us a lifetime to learn to accept the person we have chosen to live with, but it could also take us the same time to try to change that person and not be successful. Couples Therapy can help us understand that even though we all have the potential to change, we cannot change the other. We can learn how to accept the other person, live together or decide not to, and explore what are our own contributions to the dilemmas that we present.
