Couples Therapy

Most of the couples I work with lead busy lives. They often have fallen into circular, ineffective communication, commonly known as “looping.” This often results in both partners feeling defeated and hopeless. They have thoughts about going to therapy, but have delayed reaching out, hoping that in time, the issues would resolve themselves. Some of these couples have experienced some form of betrayal that has destroyed trust in their relationship. Others, are dealing with a partner illness, (physical and or mental), including addictive behavior, and are struggling to maintain normalcy. Still, others are feeling a vague sense that their relationship is lacking in emotional closeness and vitality.

Together we build an alliance built on unconditional positive regard and mutual trust. This allows us to discuss even the most sensitive issues. The “relationship” is the client; within this perspective, both partners are encouraged and supported in risking vulnerability, to better understand one another, and to adopt new strategies that will build a strong foundation for a healthier and sound relationship.
