Couples Counseling

Interpersonal conflict is a given in life. There is no escaping it. It is often most deeply felt in close, intimate relationships, where we reveal ourselves to our partner. It is fair to say that these relationships are among the most difficult and enriching of human experience. When written in Chinese, the word “crisis” is composed of two characters. One represents “danger” and the other represents “opportunity.” This dichotomy is an apt way of describing the challenges and joys found in couple relationships. When the pain of the relationship outweighs the pleasure, help is needed to restore trust and increase the possibilities for true love and intimacy.

My role as a couples therapist is to help you and your partner, in the safe environment of my office, to face your challenging issues and to do so with growing clarity and a sense of hope. Areas I focus on: Couples Communication Conflict Resolution Emotional Intimacy Nurturing Self and Other Healthy Sexuality Infidelity Healthy Parenting Avoiding Divorce Healthy Divorce Blended Families Financial Clarity I work to help you gain insight into the underlying causes of your difficulties and to develop skills that will enable you and your partner to create a satisfying and fulfilling relationship.
