Couples Counseling

Relationship conflicts are normal, but it can be a sign that parts of your relationship aren't working. That's where couples therapy can help.

My Approach 
I use Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) to help partners change their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in ways that are more benefitial to the relationship. I also use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to help couples get to the deeper meaning of their conflicts, develop a deeper understanding of each other's experiences, perspectives, and needs, and communicate in ways that are much more effective. However, my main approach is Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) where I help couples identify and build upon their existing strengths and get back to the place they once were when they first fell in love. My goal is to help you in the shortest amount of time as possible so you can get back to enjoying each other and the life you're building together. I tell all of my couples..."behind every criticism is an unmet need and resentments are a result of boundaries not being set". Together we'll work to:

  • Identify & break negative relationship patterns
  • Heal emotional wounds & resentment
  • Stop the blame game & take personal responsibility
  • Respond instead of react
  • Develop a deeper understanding of you & your partner's needs 
  • Identify each other's love language
  • Build emotional connection, intimacy, & support
  • Build mutual respect
  • Develop effective & constructive communication skills
  • Develop effective conflict resolution & problem-solving skills
  • Develop appreciation, empathy, & compassion for each other
  • Develop a team mindset 
  • Identify what successful couples do differently to build & maintain a healthy stable love over time
  • Learn to manage conflicts with family
  • Learn to date each other again 
  • Better understand each other's personality type

Relationships change and evolve just like people do, and conflicts offer an opportunity to learn, grow, and strengthen the bonds between you and your partner. If you're ready to decrease relationship stress, deepen your connection with your partner, and improve your relationship satisfaction, let's connect!
