Many people worry about initiating couples counseling or any counseling for that matter. They believe that they should be able to handle issues on their own. But what happens when you get stuck? What happens when your normal ways of handling conflict are not working anymore? Conflict is often viewed negatively it can be used as a positive tool for change and can lead to a stronger relationship with the right support.
While I treat individuals, couples, and families, when I am working with a couple the relationship itself becomes my client. This is part of the reason why I was drawn to the Gottman Method. While every individual has unique needs and desires, the Gottman Method is based of decades of research studying relationships and the factors that are most likely to increase the longevity of a relationship. The tools and information incorporated in the Gottman Method help couples to increase, respect, affection and understanding. My goal as a couples therapist is to use the training in the Gottman Method to help clients develop the skills and tools to improve their relationships, not only in the office but on their own at home.
I hold a dual license in Marriage and Family Therapy and well as being a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor. Having over 15 years of experience as a Marriage and Family Therapist has exposed me to many of the complex issues that typically arise in couples and family counseling.
