Healthy relationships don't always happen naturally. Sometimes, they need conscious tending.

Being in an intimate relationship is hard. Have you found that, no matter what you do, you and your partner end up back at the same old issues? Are you deadlocked on important aspects of your lives? Are you like two ships sailing past each other in the night? These are painful, exhausting, and frustrating places to be. ​

"Couple's counseling can help you rekindle the connection that you both deserve."

Fortunately, couple’s counseling can help you rekindle the connection that you both deserve. I like to use the metaphor of a garden. Gardens need tending otherwise they will wither. Similarly, when relationships get stuck, they need some intentional tending––communication skills, structure, insight––to get back on track.

I am passionate about being there for couples as they find their way to a more fulfilling, supportive, place with each other. My role is to provide structure, specific tools, and strategies in a nonjudgmental environment so that you can have the kind of relationship or marriage you deserve.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Does couples counseling work?

A: Yes, it does. Numerous studies have shown that couples counseling can produce lasting change and help couples stay together.

Q: Does going to couples counseling mean that my relationship or marriage is a failure?

A: Definitely not! Even the strongest relationships sometimes need a little outside support.

Q: Will it just be us fighting the whole time?

A: Sessions are productive and positive. There may be some revisiting old familiar issues, but the focus is on doing things differently so that you and your partner don't have to relive the same old dynamics over and over again.
What to expect
When you and your partner come in for your first session you may be wondering what to expect. Couple's sessions run between 50 and 60 minutes. During the first session, I will get to know you and your partner. I will ask you for the specifics of what has brought you in, as well as ask you some questions about what drew the two of you together at the start of your relationship. I try and get a clear picture of your relationship or marriage, including any areas of strength. Then I will give you some idea of how I see things and my thoughts on where we could go from here.

After the first session we will begin working on the specific areas that we've identified during the initial session. I emphasize learning new skills and ways of relating that can be helpful to you going forward so that you and your partner can begin to relate in new ways.
