Couples Counseling


The Common Bond

I work with couples and families to enhance communications skills and strengthen the common bond. It is critical for couples to first identify their goals in coming to counseling. I believe in exploring every client’s thoughts and feelings in order to reinforce a sense of being heard, and to bring attention to each person’s unique perspective of the problem. They may be miscommunicating what they really want to say, or they may just not understand the right ways to convey what they’re thinking to their partners. By utilizing different types of therapy – including mindfulness therapy, emotional therapy and behavioral therapy – it’s possible to address the root issues that are causing the strife in the relationship. 


New Ways to Connect

Quite often, couples that go to couple’s therapy find that they’re able to rekindle the love they once thought was lost. I work with many people to help them overcome their challenges and find new things and ways to connect. There is an emphasis working on the skills of listening, negotiation, compromise, mediation and decision-making as a team. I focus on developing skills of assertion, rather than aggression or passive-aggression.

  • Working through infidelity
