Helping you communicate and solve problems together
Poor communication contributes to anger, resistance and sadness in a
relationship. I'm here to help you with that. Love brings us the desire to be close but sometimes it's the communication that fails. Differences surface. What should be easy becomes confusing and difficult. I understand what that feels like and I can help you.
When love is out of sync or caught in destructive patterns it disturbs everything else in your life
As a Therapist of many years I can say that Couples Therapy isn't magic, but most issues between Couples can be resolved by improving your communication, dissolving resentment, reconnecting emotionally and learning some new ways to solve problems together. Both Marriage Counseling and Couples Therapy can help you discard what doesn't work while upgrading your communication as a Couple.
During our sessions together I will listen to your point of view and help you understand what needs to happen for things to improve. You may be frustrated and thinking, "I communicate great with everyone else, why can't I communicate with my partner?" In 95 % of cases it's totally fixable. I'll help you and your partner understand each other in a deep way, giving you skills to smooth out communication. I will base that on your individual uniqueness as a Couple.
I'm at my best when helping Couples create positive change
As your Counselor my style is to understand and honor your emotions while keeping you both moving forward toward solutions. I don't take sides. I am objective and fair. Once you become a client of mine I will dedicate considerable experience, insight and energy to help you attain your relationship goals.
Email is the best way to reach me.
I look forward to hearing from you.
