The reason I chose to specialize in marriage and couples counseling is….:

Couples run into difficulty because they get stuck in negative patterns of interaction that become rigid and take on a life of their own. I choose to specialize in marriage and couple therapy because I believe that therapy for couples can help identify these patterns or cycles, and the emotions that lead each partner to approach and react to the other in ways that keep the cycle going. This understanding can then be used to help the partners avoid these cycles and find ways of relating that allow them to have a closer, more intimate connection.

What you most enjoy about working with couples is….:

I find great pleasure in working with all kinds of partnerships in support of more enjoyable relationships. Couples therapy can be challenging when old patterns become stuck and sides become fixed. Some relationships simply don’t make it. However, couples therapy can also remind people about the bonds that brought them together in the first place. Moments of attunement, connection, warmth, humor, love, and sensuality can be re-experienced.

Are there kinds of couples or issues that you work with a lot?:

I have experience working with straight, gay, and lesbian couples. Couples who seek help when they (1) begin to notice trouble, (2) they start to feel distant from each other, or (3) when resentments hang on, and are unable to stop that pattern before it becomes entrenched.

What are the steps to becoming a client in my practice?:

Please email me or call me with your interest in working together as well as providing your contact information and I will get back to you within 24 hours..
