Wednesday-Friday 9:00am-7:00pm. Saturday-Monday marriage intensives only
When you are alone you understand why you feel lonely. When you are in a relationship and you feel you are alone, that is different. Our need for relationships is hardwired into our biology. It goes against the grain for us to remain alone during our lifespan. However, relationships are tough. They require humbleness, honesty, and sacrifice.
As a Certified Gottman Method Therapist, I am trained on the work of Drs. John & Julie Gottman and their over 5 decades of research on relationships. I seek to help couples learn research-based skills to improve their relationship and live a life aligned with their values as a couple and individual. I am trained in how to treat issues such as affairs, addictions, and trauma within the couple unit. We hope to not only to make your relationship less miserable but to build a stronger, happier relationship.
When you marry someone you marry a particular set of problems. Research has shown that 69% of relationship problems never get resolved but are perpetual based on personality differences between partners. So our goal is to manage conflict rather than completely resolve it. We want to get to a place where you can have effective communication with each other on these differences without hurting each other’s feelings. I place a high emphasis on knowing each other deeply and creating a culture of respect and fondness.
The more intimately you know your partner the better you are able to navigate conflict. But just because we resolve conflict doesn’t mean that friendship, romance, passion, and intimacy automatically come back on their own. I am also a Certified Sex Therapist Informed Professional and utilize assessments, psychoeducation, and recovery techniques to address the issues of friendship and intimacy within the relationship as well.
I also work with children, adolescents, individuals, and families as a whole.
I can travel to FL for intensive marriage therapy only or telehealth for FL residents.
