Couples Therapy 

Couples therapy encourages partners to explore the strengths and challenges of their relationship.  It is important to look at the areas of attraction in addition to the conflicts, so I work to understand the emotional interactions of your communication cycle.  The goal is not to change you but to enhance the connection between you.

Verbal disagreements are not necessarily unhealthy.  In fact, they can be an important part of a relationship--the expected give and take that occurs when any two people communicate. 

It makes sense that you will have opinions, desires, preferences that may/may not align with those of your partner.  But sometimes couples find themselves stuck in a pattern of disagreements that can feel exhausting and unproductive.  When ignored or allowed to continue, this pattern can erode the base of connection and threaten the relationship.  By understanding the underlying feelings and desires, therapy offers an opportunity for partners to reconnect.

I have listed several common themes that bring couples to my office.  If you would like to address any of the following issues in your relationship, consider contacting me for a free telephone consultation:

  • Ongoing conflict
  • Communication concerns
  • Financial disagreements
  • Intimacy
  • Infidelity
  • Rebuilding trust
  • Managing extended families
  • Setting boundaries
