Are you hoping to improve a relationship with a loved one? Have you been unable to resolve conflicts in an important relationship, or grown distant and disconnected? I specialize in relationship distress, whether between partners, parents and children, siblings, or even close friends. As a Certified Emotionally Focused Therapist, I am trained in the most effective, scientifically supported model of couples therapy. While many therapists teach skills to improve communication or problem-solving, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) goes beyond skill-building to address underlying emotions and hurts that fuel repetitive conflicts. EFT is often successful even when problems are long-standing, couples are on the brink of divorce, or infidelity has rocked the foundation of a relationship.

I begin by creating a safe, non-blaming atmosphere where all participants feel heard and understood. Partners are helped to understand their conflict or disconnection in new, more productive ways, to express underlying feelings more openly, and to appreciate their partner's perspective. Even couples who have lost hope are often able to build a more secure, loving connection.

For people who are not sure therapy is the right step, I also offer day-long relationship enhancement workshops to help couples deepen their emotional connection and change ineffective interactions. Following a very successful couples workshop in May, I am now accepting registrants for my November 6th workshop.

More Info About My Practice

Because couples and families have multiple voices to be heard, I have found that the 50 minute sessions I use for individuals are generally too short to make adequate progress. I therefore schedule most couples and families for extended, 75 minute sessions. While I am not an in-network insurance provider, many people submit receipts for psychotherapy to their insurance companies and receive partial reimbursement through their out-of-network benefits.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Healing from infidelity, changing destructive interactional patterns, creating more loving and secure bonds between partners and between parents and children, parenting challenging children, parent-adolescent conflict, blended family issues, parenting young adult children, extended family issues, premarital counseling, depression, bipolar disorder, life transitions, stressful life events, and grief and loss.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Many people are reluctant to seek counseling, especially as a couple. They worry that a therapist will take sides, blame them for the problems, or tell them their relationship should end. But good couples therapy is not about blame or taking sides; it helps people understand how their very legitimate and understandable feelings may sometimes lead them to act in ways that interfere with getting the love and support they want. I believe a good couples therapist is on the side of the relationship, not either individual. I always support working on a relationship unless there is a lack of physical safety or an ongoing affair.
