Relationship / Marriage Issues

Every relationship comes with its fair share of issues. Navigating the complexities of life together is hard enough, but when you start to feel regularly distressed or hopeless, about your relationship, it may be time to seek professional help. No matter what your issues seem to stem from (disagreements about money, sex, stress, chronic illness, mental illness, infidelity, trust, emotional distance, parenting etc.), if you and your partner are arguing more frequently and experiencing feelings of resentment or contempt, it is likely that there are some underlying problems to address. Because many problems in relationships are a result of communication issues, a qualified mental health therapist can teach you to find new ways of talking to each other to help you find your way back to common ground. Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s relationship and marriage issues experts today.

Most women come to me with some concerns about their relationships. Past, present,'s all connected! If you struggle to know what your true needs and boundaries are, or you feel invalidated, misunderstood, and unheard in any of your relationships, reaching out for help is the right thing to do. Together we can look at your relational template, see your patterns, and help you move closer to more authentic, healthy relationships.


My entire career has centered around relationships, both healthy and unhealthy. When most people think about relationship therapy, they only consider romantic relationships or relationships with other people in their life. I truly believe that building a heathy relationship with yourself, whether you're single or not, is just as important. In addition to building a healthy relationship with yourself & loved ones, also consider your relationship with your money.

I have received extensive formal training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples, and I continue to consult regularly with other experts in this approach. EFT helps couples go beyond simply learning new communication skills. In EFT sessions, both partners get the chance to achieve a deeper understanding of the emotions that fuel their cycles of negative interaction.

Couples therapy is a type of intervention focusing on improving honesty, trust, and intimacy between partners. When working with couples I focus on relationship dynamics, the impact that the family of origin, patterns of communication and how the relationship manages conflict and vulnerability. This process often involves reflecting on how each partner has contributed to the current problem, exploring attachment and differentiation, and creating space for trust and depth in the relationship.
