COUPLES & MARRIAGE COUNSELING

I work with straight, gay, married and unmarried couples in therapy.I am also available for pre-marital counseling My approach to couples therapy encompasses a number of things:

  • Providing a safe space in which to explore and share difficult feelings with each other
  • Identifying current stressors and triggers and working to resolve impasses.
  • Facilitating better communication by enhancing listening and expressive skills
  • Exploring individual and family histories to better understand the roots of the couple's dynamics

In my work with couples I integrate a psychodynamic and developmental understanding with elements of , Emotionally Focused Therapy Collaborative Couples Therapy. and Imago Therapy. I also have a sub-specialty in working with couples with ADHD.  Please see my Video page to hear me talk about my work with couples.
