Helping you create the life you desire

Couples Counseling

Your relationship is important to you. You want things to go well. But occasionally, your partnership becomes strained. Miscommunication and all its symptoms wreak havoc, and things become - and remain - tense. You feel misunderstood in your relationship. You're frustrated; you're disappointed. You feel terribly alone.

Or maybe you feel stalled in your partnership. There is the desire to make an increase in your commitment - by living together, possibly, or marrying, or having children - but something prevents you from reaching new levels of intimacy. Again, you feel isolated, lonely, and sometimes angry.

It is possible to improve communication in your relationship. It's possible to resolve conflicts, to develop new understanding, to grow in intimacy as a couple. Couples counseling offers troubled partnerships the opportunity to deal with present issues while learning new skills to address future problems. I have worked with many couples of diverse lifestyles desiring a deeper emotional connection with their partners and a mutually gratifying relationship. As your couples counselor, I can help you and your partner address such issues as:

  • Fear of/Resistance to Intimacy
  • Chronic Arguing
  • Relationship Stagnation
  • Pre-marital Counseling Needs

Together we will discover ways in which you as a couple can gain a fresh relationship perspective and learn new behaviors to strengthen and nurture your partnership with each other. We can investigate certain sources of relationship issues and get to the bottom of how they might be creating distance between you and your partner.

Participating in couples counseling is a constructive, proactive way to encourage dialog, strengthen your friendship, and work out your differences. I'm here to help. Contact me to discover how couples therapy can improve the quality of your relationship.
