The goal of couples therapy is to help each partner see and understand the other. Empathy is the cornerstone of a strong and healthy relationship. Therapy helps couples better understand each other, work through impasses, and find a genuine desire to care for one another. The relationship becomes a sanctuary where both individuals feel loved and accepted while continuing to support each other's personal growth.

I work with couples on how to really listen, how to have constructive conflict, how to see each other with compassion and understanding, how to increase connection and intimacy.

You want to enjoy each other's company, learn about yourself & grow as individuals. Challenges can easily arise at any stage - how to meet someone, dating, premarital, commitment, re-organizing around Life events, etc. Communication is high on the list for connecting well, but before this, your silent ideas of what you expect or need from one another. In Counseling you step out of the day to day & visit the brass tacks of what your relationship is built on.

Conflict is a part of relationships since no two people are exactly the same & won’t see the world the same way. An occasional argument can be healthy if it leads to a deeper understanding of one another’s wants and needs, but if it’s all the time and the same argument seems to arise over and over, it could be a good time look at what is really going on. There is no need for this small or large source of your stress to lead to any further discord or unhappiness for you. We are here to help.

My style of relationship counseling is collaborative and ecclectic. Some simply need a safe space to explore conflicts, safely express criticisms, or voice needs and having an impartial observer present can profoundly shift the dynamic. In other cases a more involved treatment plan is necessary to guide partners in self-work and growth, and in these cases I often find it helpful to do occasional individual sessions with each party in addition to couples sessions. I'm flexible.
