    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 yourself and your partner?

    All things can be improved, changed, and bettered, with a bit of support, no matter how big or small. With couples therapy, you’ll learn 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

    Healthy relationships are about finding a balance between connection/intimacy and independence/autonomy. Ideally, each influences and helps the other. Couples Counseling can help you achieve this balance in your relationship.

    Couples Counseling can also help you slow down your interactions so you can begin to identify how each of you can get emotionally triggered in your relationship. Additionally, it can help you learn new skills and tools that you and your partner can use in your everyday life together.

    I offer a skill-based realistic solution-focused approach to improving and enhancing your relationship. Through Couples Counseling, you will acquire the tools and skills needed to open lines of communication, resolve conflict and deepen mutual understanding and respect. In my couple’s therapy sessions, I help people develop the necessary skills to maintain sustaining love.
