About

Perhaps your relationship has devolved from a happy and satisfying love story to a disappointing, distant, but convenient arrangement. If so, how long can you endure this experience? Research indicates couples suffer for too long. They often wait up to six years after they begin to feel unhappy to seek professional help. Relationships suffer when partners have hardships like strained finances, career setbacks, raising special needs children, illnesses, losses, substance use problems, and unhealed past trauma. It is no wonder partners lose their way with one another. It can seem impossible to get past criticism, pain, and years of not showing up as their best self for themselves, and for their partner.

Empirically validated Gottman interventions are supported by 40 years of research. Practical ways to respectfully talk about gridlocked problems is part of what makes it so powerful. Being seen and heard by your partner has a tremendous effect. When disappointments are addressed with kindness, couples begin to feel like they have their friend and lover back. Entering into deep dialogue with each other, asking soulful and existential questions like, “Are you my journey?” becomes a new way of relating.
I am especially honored when a couple I have been seeing in therapy recommends working with me to another couple who is struggling. To me, this means the belief that a hurtful relationship can achieve growth and healing is catching on!

After 22 years of collaborating with clients, I find joy in hearing people say that they believed their relationship was beyond help but now have an experience with therapy they are very happy with!

Tell me what it is you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? ~Mary Oliver
