Relationships

I specialize in providing marriage counseling, couples therapy, premarital therapy, couples therapy for one, and sex therapy.

I help couples decrease conflict, improve communication, and increase emotional and sexual intimacy. I don’t just sit back and ask you how they feel. I have an engaged style that stops negative patterns and helps you learn new, more productive communication tools and connect to each other again.

Want to learn more? Read on, check out my Journey to Stronger Relationships¬†blog, or contact me¬†and I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have.

In our first hour, I typically have three goals:

  • I try to hear each person about the challenges.
  • I ask what you love about each other so I can remind you that there is hope.
  • I give you a tool or task so you can begin making changes right away.

Beyond the first session I complete an assessment and we create goals together. Here are the most common relationship goals I help couples achieve:

  • Decreasing conflict
  • Improving communication
  • Deepening emotional connection
  • Enhancing sexual satisfaction
  • Increasing self-care and self-soothing
  • Resolving values differences

I utilize therapeutic techniques from the Gottman method, emotionally focused couples therapy, and other empirically validated marriage therapy methods.
