Couples and Relationship Counseling

Romantic relationships, at their best, can be deeply satisfying, rich and fulfilling experiences. When conflict arises, they can also be a source of hurt, sadness, and frustration. I provide relationship counseling, to get through the difficult times and come out stronger.

I take an interpersonal approach, which means I work to identify and improve communication patterns and styles of relating to one another. I have completed Level 1 and Level 2 of the Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and utilize this approach to inform my treatment planning and interventions. I strive to create a safe space for you to explore, learn, and grow together. 

Relationship counseling may take the form of, but is not limited to:

  • pre-marital counseling
  • marriage counseling
  • couples counseling
  • multiple partners counseling for those in open, non-monogamous, and polyamorous relationships

Common topics may include:

  • Navigating life transitions together
  • Diminished intimacy 
  • Cultural differences & power dynamics (gender, ethnicity, nationality, religion, income, ability, etc.)
  • Concerns related to sex
  • Infidelity and broken trust
  • Deciding to and moving forward with "opening up" a relationship
  • High Conflict (continuous arguing, fighting)
  • Addiction & co-dependency
  • Differences in parenting styles
  • Separation and divorce
