Couples Counseling

Relationships…

Your pattern of reactivity is the real enemy in your relationship, not your partner.”
Al Crowell

While we crave love and connection, most of us find ourselves in a power struggle with our partners.

This struggle can lead to constant fighting, living parallel lives, walking on eggshells, having affairs, and contemplating or getting divorced.

My goal is to create conscious intention in both how you act and the decisions you make. Whether you are looking for growth, needing repair, and/or deciding whether to stay together, my job is not to make decisions for you, but rather to help you make them in the best possible way.

We will work together to create more safety, connection, and intimacy in your relationship. In a safe and supportive environment, I teach relationship skills. This includes a way of communicating that creates safety and turns conflict into connection.

I work with couples on issues such as:

  • Premarital counseling
  • Communication
  • Conflict
  • Affairs
  • Intimacy
  • Sexual issues
  • Parenting
  • Life transitions

“”We are born in relationship, we are wounded in relationship, and we can be healed in relationship.”

Harville Hendrix

One modality I use is Imago Relationship Theory, where I foster a new way of communicating in a safe and structured manner. This facilitates both individual personal growth and deeper connection with your partner. Imago looks for the source of conflict – which often hides within one’s personal narrative and surfaces as triggers and sensitivities. By helping partners recognize and heal each other’s pasts, they will grow both individually and as a couple.

All Couples Welcome.

I work with couples of all kinds: married, living together considering marriage, same sex, separated and/or separating, monogamous and non-monogamous.
