Few things are more stressful than difficulties with your partner, and few more rewarding than having a relationship that you feel good about. I work with you and your partner to help you grow out of patterns that create conflict, discomfort, and distance, bringing forth better communication and feelings of trust in the relationship.
Whether you’re facing infidelity, lack of passion, or repetitive fighting, my goal in couples therapy is to bring you to a place that feels right for you, whether or not you decide to stay together.
Using various tools, I’ll use what I learn about your personal histories, along with how I see you interact in our session, to discover the root of why you are having conflict. We’ll slow down your automatic reactions to each other, leaving room for change in your relationship. Through this process, you get to find out how to honor each others needs without feeling that you are making a personal sacrifice.
Premarital therapy is wonderful way to look down the road ahead to glimpse how your relationship might handle the curves that life throws your way. It can help to strengthen your bond, and therefore relieve the pressure associated with your big day.
Couples therapy is a specialty of mine. I have dedicated myself to ongoing, advanced training in couples therapy, primarily through the PACT Institute. PACT stands for the Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy. This approach helps partners learn to care for one another in a way that results in a mutual sense of security—an essential ingredient to help you, as a couple, live and grow in ways that would otherwise not be possible.
Your relationship can have both the wisdom of old love and the fun and flirtation of young love at the same time. Discovering yourselves again through therapy can bring you there.
I work with couples and relationships of all kinds.
I see couples weekly, for 75-minutes per session. Longer sessions are more productive when working with a couple.
