Couples Therapy helps couples recognize and resolve conflicts. In doing so they can improve their relationships. Some couples have chosen to work on their relationships but do not know how to or where to start. I want to help couples make educated and thoughtful decisions about rebuilding their relationship.
My work as a Couples Therapist is to help you to meet your goals. I will also help you to compassionately resolve and accept your differences. I provide a variety of services for couples such as marriage counseling, relationship counseling, premarital counseling, and overall relationship issues. Some of the services I can help you with are:
- Communicate more effectively
- Argue less
- Learn when to confront and when to let go
- Trust each other again
- Figure out your triggers
The goal should not be to “fix” your partner. In a controlled setting I help individuals stay tuned in when their partner is trying to communicate. Learning to communicate in a thoughtful and respectful manner can help both partners participate in listening and talking.
Currently, I work with couples that are dating, married, separating or divorcing and co-parenting. Sometimes Couples Therapy is helpful for a parent and their (adult) child or for siblings. Couples Therapy is simply any two people who want to work on their relationship together.
