Relationships can be a powerful source of fulfillment to draw from in our lives. Miscommunication, old patterns, unrealistic expectations and daily stress sometimes step in, preventing them from providing that happiness and strength. Therapy can break down barriers to improve communication, decrease conflict and increase emotional and physical intimacy. I specialize in the respectful treatment of relationship and sexual concerns, utilizing an open, honest, and sex-positive approach to help assess your unique personal goals and assist you in developing more positive and fulfilling relationships- with yourself and with partners.

Other times, people come in not knowing why they feel as they do, but they just want to feel better. Initially, couples frequently report having the same problem or argument. By collaborating with my clients, I help them work through what is getting in the way of healthier functioning and relationships.

Do you and your partner yell, slam doors, and then not talk about the subject for days? Do you say things you don't really mean and hurt their feelings? Or maybe, you avoid discussing certain topics for fear of the outcome? "Communication is key" is what they've all said, right? But what does that mean? You express yourself through words or actions and your partner is supposed to understand what you mean, but they keep missing your point. So what does (healthy and effective) communication look like?
