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?

I value and have a passion for all relationships to thrive. I successfully work with couples to enhance the quality of their relationship, and together discover better solutions to whatever is creating their dilemma or source of dissatisfaction. Being a couple is a tender, tentative, and promising bond. Yet it does not customarily benefit from the uniting, binding, and blending societal glue of law, traditions, religion, economics, or even language. Nevertheless, your relationship is meaningful, valuable, supportive, loving, and needing to flourish with fresh growth and deeper roots. Visit me at PhillyFamilyLifeCounseling.com; allow me to join with you to help create new possibilities.

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.

Relationship counseling is the process of counseling the parties of a relationship in an effort to recognize and to better manage or reconcile troublesome differences and repeating patterns of distress. The relationship involved may be between members of a family or a couple (see also family therapy), employees or employers in a workplace, or between a professional and a client. Somehow the simple act of walking while talking out life’s issues creates an environment of possibility and change - of forward movement. Through the rhythm of walking and talking there is a sync between myself and my clients. At a moderate pace, healing and breakthroughs occur.

It’s just not possible to have a committed relationship without going through tough times. Tough times will occur in any marriage. There's no need to get stuck there. Having my own long term marriage in addiction to my credentials and training and experience as a marriage counselor allows me to really "get it." You may be having or launching kids or find yourself struggling with how relationships work, or don’t work. Couples counseling can help you reconnect and resolve communication challenges and conflict. Yes commitment is work but when you feel your relationship get back on track it can be so worth the time and energy.

I create a safe, warm, caring atmosphere so that you and your spouse or partner can share your stressful conflicts that cause hurt, anger, depression, bitterness, sadness, helplessness, discouragement, withdrawal, attack and hopelessness. Either or both of you may also be experiencing guilt, shame, loss, grief and serious family, parent-child or career/job) problems. I can help you shift from this state of emotional and mental distress/darkness to the experience of emotional and mental light and can help you learn to communicate more effectively and harmoniously. I can help you learn how to be more appropriately assertive; listen more from the heart and resolve problems in a win-win mutua

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.

A relationship requires work but it doesn't have to feel painful and exhausting along the way. Couples therapy focuses on helping partners form positive and meaningful interactions, develop relational goals, and build on communication skills in order to feel heard, understood, and deeply loved by your significant other. I use Emotion Focused Therapy to help partners label and understand each other's underlying feelings and to develop more affect and compassion for one another. I also offer couples yoga to work on intimacy and trust issues.

Anger is not an aphrodisiac nor is it helpful in getting more of what you want. Couples in conflict often focus too much energy on changing their partner. The problem is that each partner does not have direct control over the other. The way out is of this dilemma is to learn how to not get so upset over what you dislike in your partner. I teach each partner how to improve their relationship by first modifying their own behavior. By having better control over your emotional and behavioral reactions you can more constructively communicate, negotiate and influence your partner. I teach you how to get your message across and positively influence your partner so that you can enjoy the results!

Feeling strong and secure in your primary relationship can have a positive impact on all areas of your life. Whether your are interested in pre-marital, marital or general couples counseling, I can help you improve your communication and overall satisfaction in your relationship. I use a model of counseling called Eco-Systemic Structural Family Therapy (ESFT) which emphasizes the idea that relationships patterns repeat themselves. I will help you and your partner identify these patterns, explore one another's perspectives and create new, healthier patterns that allow for happy and sustainable relationships.

How to Get the Love You Want Take a minute to think about what you expect from a loving relationship with a partner. Does your list contain any of the following common expectations? o Healing past wounds o Meeting all of your current emotional needs o Fulfilling fantasies and idealizations of how life should be o Making up for other less rewarding aspects of life / making your life "whole" Any one of these expectations alone can be a very tall order! Not surprisingly, relationships often buckle under these kinds of pressures. So, what to do? Learn to take care of and give to the relationship; in other words, give instead of trying to get the love you want. Take care of the rel....
