COUPLES SESSIONS

I provide counseling for couples, helping them to overcome and navigate through relational or marital challenges. Being able to engage in and maintain a successful relationship is not an innate quality or an easy task to accomplish; rather, there is a lot we can learn in order to create and sustain a meaningful partnership with another.

Couples therapy helps partners understand and resolve conflicts and improve their relationship by providing tools to communicate more effectively, negotiate differences, and understand and improve their conflict style. Power struggles, illness, infidelity, sex, anger, and communication problems can contribute to difficulties in relationships. Couples counseling can help resolve conflicts and heal wounds bringing you back to a space of love and connection.

I believe that the most effective route to change and healing is through self awareness, I strive to work towards that end in all the therapy I do, both with couples and with individuals. I have found that there is no more powerful tool for breaking old patterns and affecting real change than self knowledge. With people who are curious inward and outwardly, I can help them do deep work and find out who they are and why they do the things they do.

I have found that my approach is most effective with couples who are having trouble communicating be it a new pattern or an old one, individuals who are facing issues of blocked creativity and those who are struggling with their identity.

I have a Master’s in psychology and am a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC).  My orientation is Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT) with a psychoanalytic bent. This diverse training has opened my eyes to the need to build bridges and communicate authentically.

 What we think, we become.
