Monday-Thursday 9-5, Private Weekend Retreats
I specialize in working with couples who have trust issues in their relationships. I have years of experience helping couples move through betrayal trauma and begin the next chapter of their relationships. The Gottman Therapy method is ideal for this complex work.
I also help couples who want to focus on sexuality and intimacy, connection, communication, parenting, healing from grief, or problems with extended family.
My goal is to teach you what I've learned about the research that clearly shows what makes happy couples thrive, and what the predictors of divorce are. I'll teach you these skills so that you can practice with me and learn them yourselves. My goal is to teach you my skills so that you no longer need me in order to do the work.
My therapeutic style is direct, funny and warm. I am described as empathetic in my work, but I'm a straight shooter and I will let you know what I think.
I specialize in weekend intensives either in your home or in a place we choose, often outside the parameters of a typical clinical office setting. I find this more relaxed and comfortable approach helps us take a deeper dive into what's keeping your relationship from thriving. It's amazing how much we get accomplished over two days in twelve hours versus twelve to twenty-four weeks of individual sessions. This is John Gottman's preferred couples therapy style, what he calls "marathon therapy." I love it, too, and I love the accelerated results.
I will help you to disarm verbal conflicts, increase intimacy, respect, and affection, remove barriers that create stagnancy, and learn to increase empathy and understanding in your relationship.
