Are you and your partner struggling with difficulties in communication? Are you feeling disconnected and alone in your relationship? Are you and your partner trapped in repeating negative cycles of fighting and/or withdrawal? Is the stress in your relationship affecting other areas of your life? Are you or your partner not sure whether you want to stay committed to your relationship? Is the romance gone and you are seeking to rekindle that passion? Is your relationship impacted by an affair/infidelity and you are wondering how or whether to stay together? Are life transitions challenging your relationship?
If you can relate to some of these questions, couples counseling may prove beneficial for you and your partner. Together, we can work on improving communication, increasing intimacy, rebuilding trust, reducing fights, or whatever your unique goals might be. I aim to create a safe and collaborative environment where we can focus on important concerns and process the powerful emotions associated with them. I maintain a stance of respect for differences and openness in learning from you about what is meaningful and how you view intimate relationships. You are the expert on your reality, and I honor this. With a strong focus on attachment theory, we will create a map to guide us through the change process. This will make sense of emotional realities, inform us of cycles and patterns within the relationship, and lead to healing and connection.
