District of Columbia
I believe that emotional health is heavily influenced by the state of our emotional attachments to our intimate partners. When we are confident that someone has our back there can be a positive impact on our overall functioning. When couples are in distress the negative ramifications can be far reaching into many other aspects of our lives.
Couples usually come in to see me stuck in a reoccurring pattern of negative interactions. I enjoy helping my clients learn about their partners so they can have a chance to change those negative interactions.
I work with all kinds of couples including members of the LGBT community. I have often had the opportunity to work with couples who are engaged or considering deepening their commitment to each other. Early changes in negative patterns can give clients more confidence in their ability to stay connected in the future.
I prefer for clients to phone me so that we can have an initial interaction over the phone. If we are not able to schedule for any reason then I can help them find an appropriate therapist.
