Reconnect and Rebuild

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.

What to Expect

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.  Discuss the Relationship Checklist, an online assessment that is completed by each individual in between sessions. This is optional.

3. Individual 30-minute sessions to get additional history and discover 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.
