Couples Counseling 

My work as a couples therapist is geared toward guiding the couple toward new experience. So often, relationships can assume a pattern that leaves the individuals feeling 'strait-jacketed' in unconscious roles. Couple's therapy can support the relationship in some of the following ways:

  • Identifying unconscious patterns that are known but have remained un-named. 
  • Discovering communication tools that can help breakdown defensive strategies and increase intimacy.
  • By managing conflict and engaging in repairs that feel restorative and rejuvenating. 
  • By highlighting the strengths of the relationship that can help leverage the couple into transformation.
  • Develop skillful means of relating that can help the couple move from insecurity to security. 
  • Building safety and trust that can serve the relationship as well as individual transformation. 

I see a range of couples including LGBTQ couples and couples of diverse cultural backgrounds. I am particularly skilled in working with couples dealing with:

  • High Conflict 
  • Intimacy loss 
  • Sex Issues 
  • Communication Difficulties 
  • Infidelity
