Couple's Counseling

Often our marriages and intimate relationships are only as happy, healthy, and content as we are. They have many lessions to teach and give us an opportunity to learn about ourselves. If we walk away, the lessons are likely to show up in our next relationship until we take time to figure out what is going on.

In my work with couples, I have found there is no single formula that works for everyone. Relationships tend to be as diverse as the people in them. And, I try to tailor my approach to the unique needs and issues of the partners.

Frequent issues include: determining the viability of the partnership, examining how partners erect barriers to intimacy in order to stay emotionally safe, and looking at how partners damage the relationship with unhealthy methods of conflict resolution. My ultimate goal is to help the couple establish a secure bond with friendship and romance built on honest self-disclosure, trust, shared interests, and respect.

"When people care for you and cry for you, they straighten out your soul."
