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, frustration, and despair. 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. Additionally, I incorporate elements of Attachment Theory and Emotionally Focused Therapy. 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:
multiple partners counseling for those in open, non-monogamous, and polyamorous relationships
Common topics may include:
Navigating life transitions together
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
Separation and divorce
