I absolutely love working with couples because no matter how long you have been together or how well your relationship is going, there is so much that you have yet to discover. Counseling with me is not just for couples dealing with conflict, it is also for those couples who want to enrich their relationships. Relationships are enriched when we understand that the foundation for all relationships is based on how well you KNOW your mate.
Many relationships rapidly move from the honeymoon stage directly to conflict, simply because we have not taken the time to get to know whom we are pursuing a relationship with.
While I’m trained to provide therapy to individuals and families, I specialize in helping committed couples work through the day-to-day conflicts that they face within their relationships.
I have completed Level III of the Gottman Couples Therapy Model and I use the Gottman Method to help couples successfully navigate their conflicts. The Gottman Method is an approach to couple’s therapy that was founded on over 40 years of research of couples by Drs. John and Julie Gottman. It consists of a thorough assessment of the couple’s relationship and integrates research-based interventions based on the Sound Relationship House Theory.
If you are experiencing conflict in your relationship, there is always hope. Most likely your relationship problems did not start yesterday and will take time and commitment to work through and understand your partner’s perspective.
