I work with couples who are dating, married, same-sex, separating, divorcing, co-parenting, transitioning in some manner-the introduction of a new family member be it a new child, an older parent, an adult sibling, betrayal, conflict resolution, communication difficulties and a myriad of other concerns.
I work together with couples to identify current stressors (as well as strengths) in their relationship. Therapy goals center around improving their overall communication, understanding, satisfaction, and CONNECTION – as a couple. Treatment will focus on relational dynamics and work to improve the couples’ overall ability to empathize with one another’s experiences and understand the unique roles they each play. Through our work together, clients will become better at improving awareness of negative patterns of communication impacting their relationship. Through improving communication and empathy it is the hope that a more safe, supportive, and fulfilling relationship may be achieved.
Couples sessions can be good for:
- happy couples looking to build and maintain a solid and healthy foundation.
- struggling or stressed out couples looking to reconnect and get back on the same page.
- couples exploring separation, and want to do so in a way that is supportive for all parties involved.
As your therapist I am also available to work collaboratively to determine your goals. These may include things in your life that you may be seeking to shift or perhaps you are looking to increase acceptance of what you are going through.
Psychotherapy sessions usually take place weekly or biweekly. If you are looking for a less frequent option, with a more focused and goal-oriented approach, please see my Coaching offerings.
