• Couples Counseling

    Do you feel like your relationship is at a standstill? Are you and your partner stuck in the same argument loop every night? Do you feel like you and your partner are drifting away? Do you desire more intimacy between you and your partner?

    All things can be improved, changed and bettered, with just a little support, no matter how big or small. With couples therapy, you’ll learn how to communicate your feelings and needs, and get what you want out of your relationship.

    Some issues that bring couples to therapy are:

    • Addiction/Partner Addiction Support
    • Balance (Work/Life/Family)
    • Blended Families
    • Chronic Illness
    • Divorce
    • Extended Family
    • Infidelity/Cheating
    • Intimacy
    • Mental Illness
    • Pre-Marital/Readiness
    • Pornography
    • Sex

    In my couple’s therapy sessions, I help people develop the necessary skills needed to maintain sustaining love.

    I offer ongoing relationship counseling using the leading edge models of treatment based on solid research such as The Gottman method of therapy developed by Drs. John and Julie Gottman and Emotion Focused couples therapy developed by Dr. Sue Johnson. Your therapist or counselor will draw from other effective approaches to address specific topics such as trauma, violence, affair recovery, or other wellness and balance considerations.

    Gottman Assessment will be in four sessions that are as follows: The assessment process includes an interview tracing the trajectory of your relationship, observing how you interact especially during difficult discussions, scoring and analyzing your responses on a packet of surveys, and two individual sessions during which you will be able to talk about your own perspective and goals for your relationship.
    During the feedback session, the counselor(s) will review your assessment materials and provide detailed feedback on the strengths and challenges of your relationship. You will have the ability to ask questions and understand how your relationship maps on to the research model developed by The Gottman’s which is called The Sound Relationship House. At the end of the feedback session, you will also receive some recommendations on what changes might be helpful to both of you in creating a flourishing relationship. You will have the option to continue couples therapy using The Gottman method if you wish after the assessment process.
