About

There are so many different reasons that bring couples into couples therapy. Sometimes it’s because something explosive happened, like a betrayal or affair. One partner cannot stop replaying it in their head, and the other is losing patience, expecting them to accept their apology and let the “past be the past.” Other times it is because you just cannot stop fighting about one, or maybe a few issues, like finances, sex (or lack thereof), parenting, poor communication, or anything else. Perhaps you don’t fight at all, yet there is still so much silent tension and distance between the two of you that you could pass as roommates rather than partners. Better yet, maybe you’re pre-emptively seeking help at the start of your relationship to ensure it lasts.

Whatever your reason, there is a path to strengthen your relationship. If you choose to embrace on this journey – no matter how hard, how many setbacks, and how impossible it may seem at times—I will guide you through the work (and researched-backed Gottman method) to restore your friendship; grow closer; communicate better; help you recognize the positives in each other; manage conflict more effectively; support each other in achieving your individual and shared life dreams; and honoring and working with each other’s differences.

I approach therapy as part curious observer and part collaborator. I am curious to learn *your* relationship and *your* struggles. Each of you have a side to the story, and there's meaning behind each. Let's find it and work with it. I also collaborate with you to make changes that work for the both of you. Sure, I am trained in the Gottman method but that does not make me the expert in *your* relationship. We will combine the research, the method, and your lived experience to create the change you wish to see.
