Couples usually seek counseling when they are struggling with each others behaviors or communication styles. I work with the couples that come to me to figure out where these behaviors and communication styles started and provide education and encouragement towards resolving issues. Couples are taught to focus on solutions rather than getting bogged down in the problems. They're individual issues are addressed which allows them to work better as a team. They are taught practical skills to utilize not only with their partners, but in all aspects of their lives.

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.
