So often we get to a place in marriage and relationships where we feel stuck, like we have somehow lost our way and lost touch with our partner. We just feel disconnected and alone. In those moments, it is important to be able to communicate our needs to our partners. I believe this is less scary to do if our partners seem accessible, try to respond to our needs, and feel truly engaged with us. Couples counseling can help by creating a new way of interacting that provides safety while also offering opportunities to grow together.
I recognize that each couple is different, and as such I tailor therapy to meet the specific needs of my clients. Many couples come to me because they are struggling with problems like these:
- A past affair/infidelity
- Difficulty communicating with each other
- Constant fighting
- Lack of sexual and/or emotional intimacy
- Feeling disconnected or stuck in your relationship
My job is to provide the tools for repair so that you can begin to heal these hurts. Regardless of the main issue that brings you to couples therapy today, my mission will be to help you to fully understand your own truth and behaviors, notice the moment-to-moment moves that you engage in, and learn ways to have healthier emotional experiences as a couple to bring you closer to each other.
