Couples Counseling

Every couple fights once in a while. It’s a normal, and even healthy, part of most relationships. However, when the frequency and seriousness of your fights start affecting your health and well-being, it may be time to speak with a professional.

In addition to helping those in a relationship have a healthier partnership, couples counseling can also be helpful if you and your partner are considering a breakup or a divorce – having a professional guide you can aide the both of you in making an informed decision.

I am trained in Gottman Level 1 & 2 as well as Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) Externship and Core Skills 1. I also utilized Prepare Enrich in my work with premarital couples. With each couple I seek to truly understand where they are coming from and then work with them to find the places they are stuck. My hope is to help each couple find new ways of communicating and connecting that helps them get unstuck by recognizing and changing that cycle.
