Couple Holding Hands

COUPLES/ RELATIONSHIP THERAPY

Our relationship with our partner is our primary attachment relationship as adults.  When this relationship is strained, it can take a toll on every aspect of our world.  I am trained in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and Gottman Couples Therapy and use both of these modalities in my work with couples to decrease conflict, increase healthy communication skills and increase emotional connection.  I also have training around sexual health and intimacy.   I provide direct and honest feedback and provide skills you can begin using right away to see change.  I have helped couples through a variety of issues including infidelity/ affairs, substance abuse,  life changes ( baby/ children, job change, loss, etc), sexual concerns, communication issues, feelings of disconnection, and parenting style differences.  I can also help couples who are contemplating divorce and help them process and explore what un-coupling would be like.    

          Some ways that I can help:

  • Increase healthy communication

  • Decrease frequency and intensity of conflict

  • Process anger, resentments and past hurts

  • Build trust 

  • Increase feelings of connection and shared meaning

  • Co parenting issues

  • Address concerns around sexual intimacy

  • Increase sexual satisfaction and intimacy

  • Exploring non-monogamous relationship desires

  • Family conflict issues

  • Trauma

  • Family roles, shared responsibility in household

  • Life changes

  • Building life goals and dreams
