I am a careful listener with an interactive, conversational style. I really love empowering couples to reclaim the joy in their relationship. My emphasis is on clear steps, tools, and skills that help disconnected couples discover closeness and help couples in conflict to relax while they solve problems together. Sessions focus on equipping couples with the Gottman research-based communication tools to achieve deep satisfaction in the relationship.
I weave into the couples therapy my years of experience as a therapist to reduce the stress of change so that the process feels doable to each person. A key aspect of the Gottman method and my approach is to train couples how to calm themselves. This consists of specific steps and tools for reducing anger and anxiety This brings peace of mind and makes communication easier, paving the way for a couple to actually start enjoying each other again.
I work hard to be even-handed in my approach to every couple. I want each person to feel understood and that I get who they are. I especially enjoy unlocking the strengths of each individual so that the relationship can thrive.
Couples who go through the process of couples counseling with me find that they have more emotional intelligence and much more confidence than when they started.
