Too often we tend to our relationships after life's obligations have been met. However, that extra time is as mythical as a unicorn. Thus, our relationships get treated like a cactus, instead of the orchids that they are. And, like any orchid treated like a cactus, they wilt and their survival becomes threatened. But, if we treat an orchid like a cactus we don't blame the flower, unlike how we tend to blame our relationships. My approach to couple's counseling is mechanical. First, I help a couple to diagnose the problem(s). Then we do exercises to enhance intimacy, followed by exercises for solving problems and improving communication. I help couples to flourish as they used to.

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?

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.

Couples counseling seeks to improve relationships, whether the problem is as mild as daily bickering or a serious as infidelity. Without blaming or taking sides, our therapists foster increased communication between couples, getting to the root of serious issues, and focusing on the positive aspects of the relationship, and the characteristics of your partner that were initially attractive.

Sometimes in a relationship the trust has been broken or you no longer feel loved and appreciated. Before contemplating divorce therapy can help restore the relationship. Attending therapy together can also assist you as a couple to define your needs and overcome resentments that may be intruding in your ability to move forward together.
