Couples Counseling

Are you and your partner stuck in the same argument loop every night? Do you feel like you and your partner are drifting away? Do you desire more intimacy, closeness, and connection?

All things can be improved, changed and bettered. A little support can go a long way.

I help couples:

  • Reconnect and build partnership
  • Strengthen communication
  • Strengthen sexual closeness and physical intimacy
  • Slow down fighting that goes no where
  • Rebuild trust after infidelity and betrayal

Taming the Negative Cycle

EFT helps me make sense of couples' fighting, tension, and distance. I look at couples behaviors as a means of coping with disconnection, arguing, &/or silence. Couples help me understand what their partner means to them and how they respond when they cannot reach their partner or are fearful of the conflict spiraling farther out of control.

The Gottman Method

The Gottman Method, based on over 30 years of research of working with couples, helps me better understand couples' negative distancing spirals. It also provides a structure to help couples work towards.
