My Approach to Helping
Do you feel like you and your partner are slowly becoming strangers to each other? Have conflicts and disagreements become more frequent and harder to resolve? Do you find yourself questioning the trust that was once the foundation of your relationship? Does a lack of intimacy and emotional connection leave you feeling unsatisfied and alone in your relationship? Are you questioning whether you and your partner share the same values and goals?
As a couples therapist, I know that there’s deep pain in longing for an emotional bond that seems to have evaporated. Constant arguments are exhausting and emotionally draining. It's scary to question the integrity of someone you once believed in. It's natural to feel uncertain, unhealed, overwhelmed and adrift. Thankfully, I can offer you and your partner a path forward. You are not alone.
I have been trained to comprehensively assess areas of friction in your relationship. I offer treatment to heal ruptures in trust, identify difficulties in communication, discern damaging dynamics, and address underlying differences in values and perspectives. Most importantly, I provide you with practical tools to take home and practice. The treatment I offer is Gottman Method Couple Therapy, a world renown evidence-based therapy based on fifty years of research and proven in studies of thousands of couples, including same-sex couples.
I firmly believe in the potential for change within relationships. Staying together is not healthy in all cases, but I believe that too many relationships end prematurely without a rigorous exploration of the repair, recalibration, and reconnection that can bring healing. Indeed, my own personal experiences inform my work. Relationship challenges are a natural part of life. I’m here to provide a confidential, nonjudgmental, safe, and nurturing environment for you and your partner. I’m LGBTQ+ allied and understanding of healthy ENM.
If you've reached a point of frustration and are ready to embrace relief, I encourage you to reach out to me. Together, we will embark on a journey to create a better, more fulfilling life for you and your partner.
