Marriage and Couples Counseling
Are you feeling unfulfilled in your relationship or marriage?
Are you tired of having the same fights over and over again with no resolution? Is everything in your lives taking priority over your relationship? Has a betrayal rocked your relationship and made you question everything you once thought you knew about your partner?
Struggling with your partner is despairing and exhausting.
There are a myriad of reasons why a couple may seek marriage therapy. Communication problems, conflicts about child rearing, financial stressors, healing from infidelity, divorce and remarriage, sexual incompatibility, anger, healing from addictions, etc. Because we spend so much time with one person, it can be very helpful to have a compassionate yet neutral third party to help guide you through issues that may find you stuck.
Marriage therapy or couples counseling is designed to help you work through relationship or communication problems and create emotional closeness. I help couples understand and respond to the emotional needs of each partner, develop healthier means of relating, learn tools to negotiate differences, problem solve, and work through conflict in a healthier way to gain and maintain a deeper level of intimacy and closeness.
Through marriage counseling/couples counseling, you can expect to change ineffective communication patterns as well as enhance and restore respect and trust in your relationship. No matter what level of distress you are feeling, couples counseling or marriage therapy can help you move forward.
You came to the right place for marital/relationship support.
I am experienced, person-centered in my approach, and I aim to provide a compassionate, safe and neutral space for both partners.

- Childrearing with positive reinforcement
- Premarital conflict

How do I prepare for my first session of marriage counseling?
What if I want marriage counseling but my spouse or partner is unwilling to come?
Relationships are central to the human experience. They fulfill our deepest needs for connection, companionship and even survival. They are often the source of great joy, as well as personal learning and growth. However, we don’t all have positive human relationships, and this is where mental health therapists and relationship experts can help.
I have the skills and expertise to help you repair your strong bond, develop communication that connects, and build transformative understanding for yourselves and each other. My approach is person-centered, collaborative, and leads to positive changes that stick.
