I believe when a couple finally makes a decision to come for help they deserve good "couples" counseling as this is very different from seeing two individuals together. I love being able to get a 360 degree perspective on a relationship -- I can SEE both sides without TAKING sides. They each need to feel supported and challenged in such a way that they don't feel blamed. I find there is always room to become a better couples therapist and I am committed to doing so.
When I see couples I love helping them navigate through the blaming process to seeing their problems from a larger perspective-- Helping them see the patterns they brought to the relationship and those they have created together. I believe it is my job to hold the hope for their relationship when one or both are struggling to see their way through longstanding struggles. I find it most rewarding when I can help a couple find the "sweet spot" that gets to the heart of their issues and dissolves long held anger and negativity.
