In couples Counseling, I create a safe space where you can openly communicate with each other and heal painful relationship wounds, cultivate emotional connection and mutual support.
In my practice, I work with couples who are committed to reclaiming the passion they once had and are looking to cultivate an even stronger connection. My heart especially goes out to those couples who have children and can’t see the light in the midst of their marital problems.
I help couples overcome relationship challenges that our culture and upbringing do not adequately prepare us for. I have found success in working with couples who are struggling but committed to reclaiming the love and trust they once had. Together we can heal painful wounds, find peace, and open a transformational space where anything is possible.
When a couple is open to exploring issues that are getting in the way of trust, communication, and intimacy, I often find they are able to face and resolve the challenges that repeatedly show up in the relationship. I practice attachment-informed therapy, a process that is effective in helping couples understand the core issues that are impacting their relationship.
When there is a problem in the relationship or family structure, children are often the first to indicate there is a problem through their expression of behavioral and emotional issues. Family therapy is an opportunity to bring healing, communication and a greater closeness for all members of the family.
It is important to understand that every family is faced with constant pressure from inner and outer influences, changes, and transformations. Therapy will help you navigate the challenges with the goal of increasing trust, safety, and open, honest communication between all members of the family.
How I work with you
We operate on two different levels with couples in therapy: Surface work and deeper level work. The surface work involves addressing the conflicts and communication issues you’ve been having, one by one. The deeper level work will actually involve discovering the set of beliefs or patterns that you may have from earlier in your life – even possibly childhood – that also need to be addressed.
Here are some of the amazing benefits of that work:
You Think About Marriage In Healthier Way
You’ve come to us wanting to solve your marital problems but what we’re really working on is how to rewire your brain toward your marriage so you can view your relationship from a new perspective. That also includes instilling daily practices that help you take responsibility for your own feelings.
You Gain Strength And Happiness As A Partner
As you mature through our process, you’ll work toward a place where each of you has less of impact to constantly hurt the other’s feelings. In doing so, you can both act more independently, which makes you a better partner and makes your partner happier. This, in turn, makes you both happy.
You Live The Best Version Of Your Relationship To Come
It’s true. If you see this through, we’re confident you will have a new appreciation for your partner in ways that you never expected.
You Appreciate The Person You’ve Become And The Choices You Make
You thought this was just about your relationship? Surprise. If you’re like many other clients we’ve had, you’ll see that you may have been people pleasing too many folks professionally at the expense of your relationship. So maybe you won’t take that meeting or go to that event because you’ll realize that you need to be saying “yes” to your relationship and “no” to other things
You can read a book. You can attend a class. You can try to do a lot on your own. But nothing – absolutely nothing – is going to hold you accountable to make the kind of lasting change that you and your partner deserve.
