Couples

Relationships are a lot of work.  It’s not easy for two people with two different experiences, needs, and dreams to work together to create the best life for the couple and the family.  Throw in cultural differences and expectations, and the work required to make the relationship succeed can seem overwhelming.  Whether help is needed during courtship,  engagement, transition to parenthood, the parenting of children, the launching of children from the home, or redefining relationships, many difficulties can be overcome with a little help.  I work with couples from diverse cultural, religious, and linguistic backgrounds and have found therapy can make a huge difference in improving communication, empowering partners, as well as set realistic expectations within the relationship.

In therapy, I work with couples to help increase their communication and problem solving skills, focus on the emotional needs of each person, helping them to address their individual issues, and increasing the level of satisfaction in their relationship.  I work with many issues such as helping couples to improve their sex lives, learn to support each other, navigate decisions to continue or end a relationship, and create new, blended families.  We also address effects of stress, anxiety, depression, ADHD, substance abuse, bipolar disorder, OCD, PTSD, or other issues that may be impacting the relationship.  Research has shown that on average, couples wait six years after their problems begin to seek therapy.  Don’t wait until it’s too late.
