Couples Counseling

When your romantic relationship is suffering, it can have pervasive effects on other areas of your life. If you and your partner are having frequent, intense arguments without satisfying repairs or resolutions, feeling unheard or unseen by one another, experiencing a decline in passion or physical intimacy, noticing persistent negative feelings toward one another, or having difficulty making calm, collaborative decisions, it might be time to engage in couples therapy. My practice is inclusive; I work with LGBTQ+ couples, open relationships, and interracial/cross-cultural couples. I have training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Integrative Behavioral Couples Therapy (IBCT), and Level 1 of Gottman Method Couples Therapy. I will work with you and your partner to first identify the main concerns in your relationship through a thorough assessment, provide an individualized treatment plan based on your specific problem areas, and provide you with concrete tools that you can utilize in and outside of sessions. I combine my various training experiences to create changes that you will begin to see early on in treatment, with special emphasis on the 3 areas that most strongly predict long-lasting relationships:

  1. Treating your partner like a good friend

  2. Handling conflicts in gentle and positive ways

  3. Being able to repair after conflicts and negative interactions

Premarital Counseling

Start your partnership off with a strong foundation by dedicating a handful of sessions to premarital counseling. Premarital counseling allows you and your partner to improve your communication and compassion toward one another, decide important aspects of the relationship before they become an issue, help you plan for the future, and learn more about each other and yourselves.
