I work with a wide variety of clients and provide a supportive and confidential space in which you can enhance the emotional connection, conflict management skills, and communication in your relationship. My areas of specialty include woking with couples dealing with infertility as well as couples raising spirited children, multiples, or special needs children. I also work with young or recently committed couples who want to strengthen and grow a lasting and meaningful relationship.
I use practical techniques based John Gottman’s research about what makes relationships work. I explore difficult cycles of interaction in which couples get caught (for example, criticism/defensiveness or blame/withdrawal) I also teach concrete tools for you to shift the direction of your relationship and start down a more satisfying path.
I find that combining an exploration of the present (current patterns and relationship difficulties) and the past (formative experiences and family of origin relationships) is the most effective way to build a secure and supportive relationship in which you feel loved and understood.
