My Approach to Helping

Couples Counseling:

Relationships can be difficult, particularly intimate ones. All couples have differences and disagreements, but happy couples know how to resolve differences and disagreements while remaining respectful to each other. I want to give you essential tools to create and maintain a satisfying and long-term relationship.
To create a relationship that works for you, I will help you:

- Identify and express your wants and needs
- Strengthen your communication skills
- Increase emotional connection and intimacy
- Learn to resolve conflicts respectfully
- Identify and manage areas of stress
- Understand and respect your personality differences
- Acknowledge and appreciate the strengths in your relationship
