In couples counseling, we all work together for the good of your relationship. Perhaps you and your partner are unsure about your next steps, gearing up for a new engagement or marriage, looking for support in communication, conflict, or problem solving skills. Maybe you're trying to recover from a relational crisis, or preparing for a big lifestyle change, or maybe you're weighing out whether your relationship is still worth it at all. Whatever you're facing, my office is a space where every person in the room is invited to speak, be heard, and be treated with respect. In couples counseling, we work through issues like:
Conflict with your partner
Growing intimacy and love
I work as a marriage counselor, premarital counselor,
dating counselor, and just relationship counselor in
general. Whatever stage of love you're in, I want to
support you and help you grow forward from here.
My approach to couples counseling draws on three major theories of couples therapy; I use an integration of experiential couples therapy, emotion-focused therapy, and the Gottman method in my work with couples. This multimodal approach focuses primarily on what is happening in the therapy session in your relationship in real time. Your job as the client is just to show up however you are that day, and we work on whatever conflict or communication challenge or stress comes up. If you're coming in for couples counseling on a day where you're feeling connected and productive as a team, we will use a different approach and I will share the evidence-based methods of building and restoring lasting love.
