About

Do you find yourself having the same argument over and over that leaves you feeling angry, sad or frustrated? Perhaps you have gotten to the point where you would do anything to avoid conflict? Maybe you find yourselves more and more distant and detached from each other? Has some external stressful event happened that has rocked the relationship and you wonder if it can ever recover? Do you have frustrating arguments about how to parent your children? Perhaps you are at the point of trying to decide if you will stay together or not?

You might be at the beginning stages of a relationship and want to avoid these difficulties. Perhaps you are looking for tools to improve your communication and set you on the path to have a long and successful partnership.

Good couples therapy can help.

Together we begin with a deep and complete understanding of the relationship. We then create a place where the couple can have the conversations they need to have in order to recover. We work on tools that help each person to communicate clearly and effectively, while at the same time, helping people to improve the ways they listen. In short, we take what used to be the difficult conversations, the blowups, the fights and give them a place and a path to be successful. This process brings clarity and connection and often lead to people feeling that their relationship has become a source of joy and support to them.
I believe when a relationship works well, it greatly adds to one’s sense of health and well being.

When we work together, I impart some lasting tools to help you both be more successful whenever you encounter life’s stressors.
