I do a lot of work with couples, whether they are married or not. Couples often need help dealing with conflict and making their communication more clear. Many times mates will take comments or relationship issues too personally. Help comes in the form of learning to be more clear and assertive in relating to others. You can discover how to take responsibility for your side of the relationship.

Perhaps you & your partner are bickering more frequently and damaging your relationship. Maybe your partner has stopped communicating with you & doesn't give you enough attention anymore. Or maybe you've discovered those things you used to think were so adorable or "unique" about your partner are now driving you crazy. Opposite traits often attract us while we are dating, but can become a problem when, for example, night after night your spouse wants to stay home and you need to go out to be around people. Couples therapy can clarify the issues and find a way for both you & your partner to have your needs met. I can help you explore ways to fix your relationship issues.
