Couples Therapy

Most issues within a couple start small and then grow in size when they go unresolved. Couples therapy will provide you and your partner with guidance and tools to improve your connection. Couples therapy can help you resolve emotional and interpersonal struggles that influence your present situation. Couples therapy will help you highlight cycles in your current relationship and talk freely about how these patterns keep you in conflict and disconnection with your relationship. Couples learn psychological insight and skills that they can practice outside of the arena (the counseling session) to help build intimacy and trust within their private environment. I have a passion for helping couples learn the two overarching communication skills, being Clear and Considerate. One of the goals of my practice is to help clients identify their love language and learn how it influence their thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and ideas towards their partner. I strongly believe that effective communication skills lead to a healthy relationship.


However, couples should be motivated to make a positive change in their lives and relationship. Often times, couples are not sure if therapy will work for them. Most feel uncomfortable about sharing the details of their relationship. Some couples are already on the verge of a break up, separation, or divorce and are not sure if couples therapy will work. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Solution-Focus Brief Therapy (SFBT) is a modern approach to psychotherapy and is focused on getting a positive outcome regardless of the couples decision. Couples learn the skills for a healthy transition into the next chapter of their relationship.

Techniques used are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (other therapeutic techniques practiced depending on the presenting problems and treatment goal).

I treat couples in the following areas​:

  • Relationship difficulties
  • Intimacy problems and emotional distancing
  • Communication problems
  • Premarital
  • Separation
  • Divorce

Let's start the conversation. I look forward to taking this journey with you.
