About

The stakes are high in couples therapy. It's a one-shot deal and must be done right.

With that in mind, I utilize Gottman Couples Therapy, an approach that is steeped in decades of research involving real life couples. My interventions and techniques are based in science and hard data, aimed at strengthening and repairing your relationship. The result: increased relationship success, higher levels of relationship satisfaction and intimacy, and fewer future relapses (instances of regressing to previously unhelpful behavior and dynamics).

The goal of couples therapy is to rebuild the love you have for each other, guide you in repairing your relationship wounds, and teach you the skills to build and maintain a positive, functioning, intimate, and healthy relationship at home. You will learn and practice various tools in the office with me and eventually find your own voice in them, utilizing them at home, as part of your relationship lifestyle, without me present.

Please expect the first three sessions to be largely assessment focused. The first session is 80 minutes with the couple. The second session is made up of an individual session with each person. The third session is dedicated to reviewing the assessment, developing an understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of your relationship, and generally understanding where the therapy and relationship are heading.
