Couples

I work with couples of all types at every stage of their relationship. Talking about our most private relationships can be daunting and uncomfortable. No matter what stage your relationship is at and what the problems are you are dealing with I will offer a non-judgmental ear and create a space for hope and healing. Some of the couples that I see would include:

  • Pre-marital counseling
  • Infidelity and/or loss of trust
  • Communication issues
  • Well-marriage check-ups
  • LGBTQ couples
  • Blended Families
  • Peaceful transitions to uncoupling
  • Clergy couples
  • Couples where one partner has chronic illness/pain

My approach to couples counseling is a blend of my psychodynamic training and my interest in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.  I believe our primary relationships impact us on a deep and lasting level and therefore the health of these relationships is vital to our well-being. Are there old wounds, bad habits, or a general feeling of discontent getting in the way of your relationship? Together we can address how to de-escalate conflict, identify your particular negative communication cycle, and then increase nurturing, bonding, and intimacy.
