There is a common expectation that couples' counseling must focus on improving communication. I have found that problematic patterns of communication can certainly play a role in some dysfunctional relationships and can be corrected at a later point in counseling. Couples' therapy needs to begin by addressing the core factor that sabotages all other attempts to heal the relationship - the lack of respect! Not love, not honesty, not compromise; but to truly experience the other as an independent human being whose world-view and needs are taken into consideration in all one's decisions and actions. Respect, in its deepest and varied expressions, is the key to creating a successful relationship

Couples counseling is my specialty, and what I most enjoy doing. I am Pro-Marriage, and work hard to help couples who want to stay together learn how to do so. I have completed Level 2 of training in Gottman Couples Therapy which utilizes a well-researched system of technique that can help couples move on from affairs, lack of intimacy and stale parallel marriages. The sessions are very interactive with the focus on processing present struggles, and re-examining past stumbling blocks to explore alternative ways to behave with each other. Couples are always seen together so that there is no story-telling and the focus is on the couple in a fair and balanced way.

Having a safe and open environment to address communication challenges, expressing vulnerability, and seeking the support to become accountable in your relationship is what couples counseling can offer. This process can help you and your partner gain greater stability and a deeper understanding of your relationship dynamic. I find that when I work with couple communication is a major issue. Therefore working with a counselor who can help you and your partner feel heard have the potential to open the door to getting certain needs in the relationship met and understood.

Do you find yourself wanting more for your current relationship? Are you desiring more closeness, intimacy and emotional connection with your partner? In the course of a relationship you may find that you are experiencing more frequent arguing and less frequent positive communication, but not sure why. I help couples gain insight into patterns and cycles that are keeping them stuck and unhappy. I have received training and use Gottman Method Couples Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy in my therapy work with couples. These therapies are very effective in helping couples repair, renew and restore their relationships to previous levels of love, caring and closeness.
