Who do you work with in couples therapy?

I work with couples in all stages of relationships:  dating, living together, engaged, married, separated, and divorcing.  Therapy can address relationship transitions (moving in together, getting married, having children, relationship endings), sexual difficulties, intimacy, trust issues, child-rearing conflicts, financial problems, career changes, relocation, extended family conflicts, blending families and/or dysfunctional patterns of behavior.

How can my partner and I benefit from couples therapy?

 Depending upon your goals for treatment, couples therapy may address the following topics:

         Reducing conflict

         Enhancing problem-solving and decision-making skills

         Learning to communicate more effectively

         Renewing experiences of love, friendship and intimacy

         Working through hurt feelings and unresolved issues

         Establishing a rich and pleasurable sexual relationship

         Deepening understanding, respect and appreciation of one another

         Building mutual trust

         Learning how to effectively support one another
