Couples Counseling
​​Every couple experiences ups and downs in their levels of closeness and harmony over time. This can range from basic concerns of disconnection to serious expressions of aggressive behavior. Relationship therapy can help resolve conflicts and heal wounds.

Overall, couples counseling can help both partners reestablish realistic expectations and goals and slow the downward relationship spiral. I work with heterosexual and LGBTQIA couples in all stages of relationships, including pre-marital counseling and those working toward healthy separation. 

I offer The Gottman Relationship Checkup which is a couples clinical tool that consists of 480 questions that identify a couples' strengths and challenges. It covers questions about friendship, intimacy, conflict, emotions, values, goals, parenting, trust, and finances. This research-based assessment was created by Drs. John and Julie Gottman in collaboration with The Gottman Institute. This tool will help to guide therapy goals. 

Other influences on my work with couples includes Emotionally Focused Therapy, Imago Therapy, Attachment Theory, and Family Systems Theory.

Group Counseling
Group counseling for couples is sometimes offered. Participating in a group allows you to see that you are not alone in your type of relationship challenge. Attending counseling with other who are experiencing similar struggles can create understanding, support, and possible solutions no matter what the concern.

Ask me about current groups.
