About

WHAT'S TRUER THAN TRUTH? THE STORY.

On the path to being known are the pillars of trust and commitment, as well as the ability to share fondness and admiration, manage conflict and share dreams. If you experience ups and downs in your relationship, you are not alone. If you’ve experienced ongoing challenges in your relationship for many years, you are also not alone. Couples often wait for a long time, sometimes until it is too late, to seek help. In the meantime, they have honed destructive dynamics of communication and conflict filled with devastating patterns of criticism, contempt, stonewalling and defensiveness. Alternatively, couples have an opportunity at the start of a relationship to be proactive and align around values and learn effective techniques to create constructive communication patterns that place respect, fondness and love center stage.

I draw from multiple treatment models, but was especially drawn to the Gottman method for couples therapy as I believe in the fundamental premise that thorough assessment of a couple’s relationship can provide a roadmap to disarm conflicting communication; increase intimacy, respect and affection; remove barriers; and, create a heightened sense of empathy and understanding. Through the use of skills and tools, you can check compatibility in a new relationship and build positive behaviors from the outset, or change a destructive dynamic and re-create a solid foundation of love and admiration.

There is hope for your relationship!
