As a Licensed Marriage Therapist, I work with married, unmarried couples and gay and lesbian couples. While I try to meet with both people, if only 1 person presents for therapy, we still focus upon the couple relationship. Couples present for therapy often frustrated at their inability to solve their differences and feeling hopeless that things won't change. I provide them with a sense of hope by normalizing their experience, helping them work through issues, identify strengths to build upon and give them practical tools of enhancing communication, intimacy, and trust. I help them to build upon strengths and what they are doing right, and move from a negative to a hopeful perspective.

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.

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.
