My Approach to Helping

Romantic relationships are hard work! To be maintained, they require regular maintenance, open dialogue, and trust.
Sometimes, we try and undertake the maintenance ourselves; however, there are times when, despite your best efforts, it’s just not working. This is when we need to rely on a professional to look at the relationship and give us a hand.

Some might think that couples therapy is only for very serious issues that affect a relationship, such as infidelity or addiction. Others may view it as ‘the final resort’ before making the decision to end the relationship. Some enter therapy with the idea that their partner needs to be forced to change, since they are “the problem.” These misconceptions prevent couples from seeking help early before things get bad.

My approach to couples therapy allows couples to express their true emotions in a way that will help them connect, rather than disconnect with their partner. You will learn new ways to listen and stay attuned to your partners emotions and discover more productive ways to respond in emotional situations.

The primary approach requires active participation in treating the relationship itself, rather than separately focusing on one partner at a time. Solution-focused, change-oriented interventions are implemented early on in treatment. Couples therapy can offer a safe space to explore issues and emotions that are being experienced in your relationship.
