I chose to work in marriage and couples therapy because I have seen throughout different experiences in my life (personally and professionally) the ripple effects of these relationships, in both positive and negative ways. Not only are the individuals themselves impacted but also the broader system they are a part of, like possible children, family of origin, friends, etc. There can be such strength when a couple can discover a rhythm that is fulfilling for each of them. On the flip side, when a couple feels out of rhythm or sometimes feel they are playing completely different songs, that can not only cause havoc on each of them personally but also on those around them.
It is such an honor to work with couples and help them discover not only a rhythm that works for them in the moment but also help them build tools to be able to tune their song from time to time when it feels a little off. As a systemic therapist, I also find reward in knowing that with my support they can create lasting positive ripple effects for those around them and future generations.
Many of the couples I see are going through different life transitions that have highlighted a feeling of distance and lack of understanding from one or both partners. This can range from couples who argue often to those who are rarely speaking. We work on empathetic communication and mindfulness to allow an opportunity for a more open understanding of each other's experiences, goals, and values.
