Couples

couplesAs your therapist, I provide a space where your individual differences are respected and connections with each other are strengthened.  In our work together you will be encouraged to share your feelings about one another in an open and honest way.  Although this can be a scary notion to consider, the benefit of having a therapist as an engaged observer in the room during these often difficult discussions, is that as your therapist, I can help identify the pattern or cycle that couples often times get stuck in.  It can be challenging to find resolution when couples find themselves in this holding pattern.  Together, we will work on finding new ways of communicating and connecting that will help move your relationship forward while shedding some of these old patterns that no longer serve the relationship.

Reasons Couples Seek Therapy
