Couple Therapy

Transform Your Connection

When a couple enters therapy, whether in crisis or a long term pattern of unsatisfying interaction, the methods used in and out of session will transform your connection in positive ways.  When it comes to relationship issues, work is not a four-letter word. Making a commitment to examine what you each bring as individuals to the couple dynamic and how you are functioning as partners  provides an opportunity to build or repair a deep and lasting bond.

Communication patterns are a common and fixable problem. Do you wish you could get your point across without triggering a fight or withdrawal? Do you feel misunderstood or have you replaced kind words with criticism and blame? Has the intimate spark died down and are you afraid it can’t be brought back to life? Since starting or blending a family has your relationship taken a backseat to your roles as parents? Putting effort into strengthening your partnership will help you navigate life’s bumps and get you back on course.

Treatment Strategies

  • Set goals for counseling outcomes.
  • Explore relationship history
  • Investigate emotional triggers
  • Practice intentional dialogue
  • Reduce negativity and build appreciation
  • Address infidelity and other relationship exits
  • Develop empathy and heal wounds
  • Re-ignite intimacy and passion
  • Establish a loving partnership

My work with couples is guided by a combination of techniques that research has determined are statistically beneficial. Working together we will practice methods that provide the chance to be heard, understood and supported. By focusing on creating more positive interaction, partners maintain their individual points of view while contributing comfort to the space between them. This will add strength to your bond through life’s challenges.
