Relationship / Marriage Issues

Every relationship comes with its fair share of issues. Navigating the complexities of life together is hard enough, but when you start to feel regularly distressed or hopeless, about your relationship, it may be time to seek professional help. No matter what your issues seem to stem from (disagreements about money, sex, stress, chronic illness, mental illness, infidelity, trust, emotional distance, parenting etc.), if you and your partner are arguing more frequently and experiencing feelings of resentment or contempt, it is likely that there are some underlying problems to address. Because many problems in relationships are a result of communication issues, a qualified mental health therapist can teach you to find new ways of talking to each other to help you find your way back to common ground.

Having fulfilling relationships of any kind is the hardest part of living well. Add sexual attraction to the mix and you're in for a bumpy ride. The more intimacy you want to achieve, the trickier things get. It's odd that we save our worst behavior for those we love the most. I can teach you why and what to do about it. Love is a skill. Learn the skill and have fulfilling relationships.

I use an approach known as Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). Research studies find that by using EFT, 70-75% of couples move from distress to recovery & approximately 90% show significant improvements. Together, we will work to identify the negative cycle that traps you & causes disconnection & isolation. In our work together, couples develop new skills to repair the ruptures & find their way back to that secure, in-love, “heart to heart” connection.

Relationship difficulties are painful and all consuming, and are not limited to intimate partners; friend, family, and coworker relationships can also wreak havoc on our day to day lives. You might feel like you are on a roller coaster-one day is perfect, the next awful and back up and down again and again. You may fear being rejected if people really knew you, or feel that you are responsible for making sure your entire family is always happy.

I specialize in working with people having relationship issues. Relationship issues can be anywhere from considering ending the relationship to just wanting to improve communication or sex. For those considering divorce, I am trained in a special process called Discernment Counseling. These sessions offer a couple a bird's eye view of the relationship, how it got to this point and what would need to change. It gives them a chance to make an informed decision on staying together or breaking up.

I will work to understand your needs/preferences/goals.

Many of us are trying to figuring out what kinds of partnerships we want in our lives. Whether that be with romantic partners, friends, or family, we struggle to navigate relationships in ways that honor both our need for connection and our need for boundaries. Sometimes, it's hard to even know what kinds of connections or boundaries we need. Therapy is an opportunity to reflect on what healthy relationships mean for us as individuals, and set concrete goals to achieve them
