Relationship counseling tries to improve communication within the relationship while making sure that, when expressing their feelings, those in the relationship are not abusive in any way and do not ridicule each other.
Both the man and the woman need to be equally heard and understood. I focus a lot on how deeply our insecurities and selfishness play a role in how we deal with our spouse. I teach the basics of what love is and how to communicate well. I help uncover the subtle and not so subtle problems of pride and selfishness, but in a loving, but direct manner.
As an expert in Relationship Counselling, my experience and proficiency have been honed over many years of professional practice. Over the years, I have helped countless individuals and couples navigate the complexities of their interpersonal relationships, facilitating improved communication, conflict resolution, and emotional understanding.
The frameworks I utilize the most are the Gottman Method and the Developmental Model. I have completed Gottman Level 1 and Level 2 Trainings as well as extensive training in the developmental model. I will also weave in techniques and methods learned from Emotional Focused therapy and Esther Perel’s work when appropriate.

Addressing relationships in therapy can look like couples counseling or individual. Either way we think addressing the relationships in counseling are so important. They often can cause things like depression and anxiety without even knowing. Our approach can address both!
Whether you are coming to me for individual issues or seeking couples or family counseling, I believe your context and relationships are a key part of our work together. As humans we are made for connection and even when we may not realize it, so much of our behavior is guided by this desire to connect. I help people to explore these dynamics, work through communication issues, and improve relationships throughout their lives.
