I enjoy helping couples learn to communicate their wants and needs to one another affectionately and assertively. I use and give many relationship questionnaries and role play situations together to help couples communicate. I help couples learn to love themselves and one another. Using I feel statements rather than the demeaning You statements is a big key. Sometimes we need to look at past hurts and present feelings to help understand why couples do and say things innappropriately and ineffectively. Reducing stress in a relationhip and balancing work, duties and pleasure are also goals to work on.

As a couples therapist, I see the couple as my client. I believe that my role is to help the couple function more effectively together, and to increase their happiness with each other. I pay special attention to the matters of honesty, trust, and respect. I care about what each individual wants from the relationship, and I help them to communicate this in an effective manner.
