Coming to therapy for a couple is never an easy decision. Often times couples are looking for an outsider’s perspective, a neutral party, or a “referee.” When working with couples, I teach skills that can be practiced and applied outside the sessions so that couples can confirm, strengthen or restore their love on a daily basis. I offer therapy for couples of every orientation, using a blend of Emotion-Focused Therapy and the evidence-based Gottman Method Couples Therapy which is based on John Gottman’s 40 years of work with couples counseling.

The Gottman Method is practical and skills based—empowering partners to improve their communication, deepen their connection, and better-manage conflict. It is dyadic and allows couples to apply skills during session in order to modify arguments so that they are more productive outside of session. Even as couples are addressing emotionally difficult issues or events in therapy, the Gottman Method is designed to increase admiration for one another and enhance friendship, providing partners with the mutual understanding and skills that will serve them long after therapy is complete. What I love about the Gottman Method is that the skills being taught are easy to apply and understand. I often finding myself using the tools within my own marriage, with friendships, and in the workplace.

During couples counseling, I seek to address barriers that may be hindering your relationship satisfaction and offer guidance in any of the following area:

Improving communication
Strengthening friendship and admiration
Exploring ways to argue more productively
Creating dialogue around trust and fears of infidelity
Enhancing intimacy and closeness
Experiencing life transitions more smoothly
Counseling for couples planning marriage (pre-marriage counseling)

I soon plan to offer Art of Science and Love Workshops for couples in the Chicagoland area.
