I do not work with insurance companies
Fees: I offer a free 15 minute consultation because I understand that picking a therapist is an important decision, and may even be one of the biggest decisions of a lifetime when it comes to your marriage relationship.
Not all therapists are the same, we have different specializations.

Humans are wired for connection, but when your marriage feels threatened after years of emotional distance it can be unsettling. Add your busy daily lives of work/career, educational goals, family commitments and you may seemingly grow even further apart. The longing, disappointment, feelings of neglect start to become more frequent. Feeling lonely when in a relationship is painful.
Or perhaps there has been trust injury, trauma or infidelity, and you feel like your future is in question. You committed to your spouse for life, but with the wide range of emotions including fear and anger- flooding your mind- you are devastated. Do you want to stay, do you want to try to work through this and save your marriage? Your thoughts may change minute to minute, why not get help?
If both of you are willing to work on your relationship, then there is hope. Where do you start? How to get back on track? Couples Counseling is a first step, and you can learn how to talk about these obstacles and to truly hear the hurt and longing of the each other. Let's face it, it is so easy for us to "half listen" while building our rebuttal.

More Info About My Practice
I specialize in relationship counseling (Marriage Counseling / Couples Therapy) and can help you learn to talk with each other again. By using techniques from the Gottman Method, you can focus on building a healthy friendship and a deeper emotional connection, that has often slowly eroded over the years. Let's look at how you manage your conflict and move from gridlock- into talking about those subjects and hot buttons. Further, develop your unique rituals of connection- that is specific to you and your partner.
If your marriage is wounded from a trust injury or infidelity, there is hope with the process of atone, attune and attach; a model developed by Drs. John and Julie Gottman. This is not easy to talk about, but you can't gloss over it. You can move through this pain and rebuild, but it takes time and support.
Regardless of what brings you into couples counseling, the interventions used and the skills you will hone, can be used to better your friendship, emotional connection and intimacy for a lifetime. Yes, there is pain to discuss, and yes, there is work to be done. If want to learn new conflict management strategies, enhance your communication and Listening skills and invest in your relationship, then call me for a free 15 minute consultation to learn how I can help you.
