Couples Therapy

Is it time to build a stronger life together? You may be frustrated by the fact that your relationship has gotten stuck in negative patterns. Sort of like you are both playing a well-rehearsed part in a movie that has grown short on romance and long on tension. You may feel disconnected and that the busyness of life is negatively impacting the quality of your time together.


I can help you increase the effectiveness of communication and conflict resolution, support an exploration into a lack of intimacy, and process a major life transition like a new baby or empty nest.Together we will practice solutions to patterns of conversation that lead to unproductive and hurtful arguments. Asking for what you need does not have to end in a fight.


Couples therapy can also be a safe place to navigate the intricacies of re-building a relationship after an affair or to learn how to co-parent after an intimate relationship has ended.


I also offer premarital counseling. For more information: Click Here

I am influenced by Gottman Method Couples Therapy which is an evidence-based model. The structure of our time together is as follows:


1.  Meet to discuss your history and reason for seeking support.

2.  Each individual completes an assessment outside of therapy.

The assessment  takes about an hour to complete.

3. Individual 30-minute sessions to go over the assessment experience and discover each individual’s hopes for the relationship.

4. By the third session, we come back together to make a plan that is unique to your couple system based on all of the collected feedback.

All future sessions involve both members of the couple.

Call or email me to set up a phone consultation, 30-minute consultation in person, or to schedule an appointment. Both consultation options are free of charge.
