Working Together, Developing Personal Strengths, Creating Stronger Relationships

Couples therapy


Who do you work with in couples therapy?

I work with couples (from the straight and LGBTQ communities) 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), intimacy, trust issues, infidelity, 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
  • Deepening understanding, respect and appreciation of one another
  • Building mutual trust
  • Learning how to effectively support one another
