When we are struggling in our love relationship and decide to seek help, there are a few things to consider. Is your therapist a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist? Choosing someone with the right training is critical, because couples therapy is very different from individual therapy. Secondly, is the therapist a good fit for both of you? Therapy will not succeed if you or your partner doesn't like the therapist. I have worked with couples for 20 years, and believe that every relationship has the potential for improvement and health. I enjoy working with straight, gay, lesbian, married, pre-marital,and committed couples. You will feel accepted and welcome.

Relationships bring unique challenges when trying to blend two separate complicated lives. Understanding the complexities of relationships dynamics and what each person brings to the table allows for change to occur. Strategies for better communication, healthy boundaries and self responsibility is the place to start. We would love to help you.

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.

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?

Couples therapy will be most effective if both individuals feel motivated to engage and can identify similar goals for the couple. We can focus on building the communication skills that will allow for partners to better express their feelings and needs to each other, and to improve the listening and comprehension of both people. Often couples struggle with mixed interpretations of the same events, so clarifications of feelings, intentions, and hopes are a vital part of improving relationships.
