Individual and Couples Relationship Counseling

Are you experiencing problems in your marriage, relationship or partnership?

I offer individual relationship counseling to address the many types of challenges we face when in (or out of) a relationship. This work may relate to a spouse, a partner, a potential mate, an ex-spouse, etc.

Areas of this individual work might include:

  • healing from a painful breakup

  • overcoming commitment and abandonment fears

  • hesitancy around entering a new relationship

  • healing relationships with family members

  • developing healthy relationship skills

  • situations where your partner is unable or unwilling to attend couples counseling with you

I also offer couples counseling to specifically address the needs of those in a committed relationship, where both individuals participate.

I help couples develop skills that support increased understanding, connection and intimacy. I work with couples of all orientations, including married, domestic partners, same-sex relationships, bi-racial partnerships - essentially, all forms of committed relationships. I provide a setting in which both partners can safely explore the relationship, better understand the difficulties, and create a desired change.

Areas of concern often include:

  • Communication problems

  • Lack/loss of intimacy

  • Premarital concerns

  • Infidelity

  • Pornography/sex addiction

  • Excessive anger/conflict

  • Jealousy

  • Parenting issues

  • Commitment issues

  • Money issues

Through our work together you can expect to:

  • Increase closeness and connection without losing yourself

  • Learn to communicate in ways where you both feel heard and understood (even when you disagree)

  • Understand and heal the emotional and behavioral patterns that hurt your relationship

  • Learn new skills to redirect destructive patterns toward ones that create love and joy

  • Revitalize your sexual connection

  • Repair the wounds of infidelity and betrayal; restore trust

  • Continue to grow both individually and as a couple, even after therapy has ended

Finally, I work with couples dealing with prior sexual abuse in one or both partners, along with infidelity and pornography issues

I know that we all need help in critical times.
Reaching out for support and guidance is a sign of strength.
