About

Why do couples therapy?

Because it works! It helps with getting your relationship back on track. Research shows that couples therapy helps with friendship/closeness, it helps with managing conflict. Mostly, couples therapy rekindles your relationship and fosters emotional connection, which is really what couples are looking for in conflict or disconnection, a way back together.

Fighting and withdrawing are inevitable in a couple’s relationship. Masters of relationships learn how to reduce their frequency, duration, and damage, and even turning them into opportunities of learning more about one another’s needs. I can help you become master in of your own relationship.

What Is Couples Therapy?

It is a process to help you and your partner develop a shared picture of your relationship - -how it is special and what to do when it is troubled, when it just isn’t not meshing. Basically, it is a roadmap to manage conflict and build emotional connection.

How does couples therapy work?

It it is your relationship that is the patient in the room. We will work on the following together...
-Assess your relationship
-Collaborative treatment plan
-Practice how to have conversations that turn problems into occasions for intimacy
-Turn what is troubling the relationship into a way for deepening it.

Don’t wait too long!

Several studies show that the average couple waits about seven years before reaching out for help. This is too long considering I know from my own clinical and personal experience that there are methods to rekindle your relationship for the long
