Relationships

I specialize in providing couples counseling, marriage therapy, relationship therapy, premarital therapy, and relationship counseling by whatever name you might have for it.

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

Want to learn more? Read on 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 see:

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

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