Couples Therapy

Relationships are where we draw our greatest strengths and experience our most miserable weaknesses.


Couples in relationship often find that they're in a perfect storm--things that once drew you together are now your greatest annoyances. You are almost irresistibly drawn to what's familiar, but often what's familiar are patterns from your family of origin that you vowed never to repeat. Over time these patterns emerge and you get stuck in cycles of toxic behavior, poor communication, and emotional triggers that make our relationships feel like a landmine. 

In couples therapy I draw heavily on the Gottman Method and Emotion-Focused Therapy, which are highly researched and evidence-based.

Couples counseling can help you:

  • Understand how to build a solid foundation for your relationship

  • Nurture the positive aspects of what you love and appreciate about one another

  • Learn to have the hard and honest conflicts that ultimately bring you closer to one another

  • Identify the vicious cycles that you and your partner get locked into

  • Learn to stop these cycles before they begin or exit them once they start 

And underlying all of this is learning to communicate more openly, honestly, and sincerely with one another to build a relationship in which you feel safe, known, and loved. I know how difficult it can be to have these conversations, especially if you and your partner have not been able to speak openly and honestly without fear of conflict or shutdown. But I am here to help guide you as a neutral and compassionate third party who really wants you to have the relationship you yearn for.
