Welcome! I offer short-term relationship counseling for couples and marriages in distress. I believe couple therapy should be focused on the achievement of specific goals, using well-respected and scientifically-supported methods.
If you are committed to fixing what is wrong and keeping your relationship together, I use a process called Emotionally Focused Therapy. In this process, I help you and your partner identify and fix cycles of negative interaction. The goal is to bring your relationship to a more secure and more loving place, one with less conflict and pain. EFT has strong scientific support, and is usually completed in 12 to 18 sessions.
If you are not sure whether you should stay together, I can help you with this difficult decision-making process. I provide a thorough assessment process that can help determine areas of strength as well as challenges in your relationship. If you are thinking about ending your relationship or divorcing, please at least consider relationship counseling before giving up on the possibility of a happier future together. Couple therapy will not save every relationship, but it saves a lot of them. At the very least, it will help you make a more fully informed decision about your future.
If your relationship is strong, and you simply want to use counseling to grow together, I can help you work through the minor aches and pains of couplehood while staying on course for the future you have planned together.
